New outfits - New Body - Still So new to Me?

Should I be used to this? Went away this weekend to my cousins graduation and made a mad dash to Chicos to find a white t-shirt to put with Black pants.. But alas I bought a ton of stuff. First off - I remember when I could not fit into Chicos. Did you know they have a size 00? say What? (I had 00 jeans on...) Anyway I purchased a bunch of clothes in size 0. Wow... So if you have not shopped Chico's size 0 is not a true size 0... it's more like a Size 6 or on the smaller side of a size 8.

 

Anyway -  I feel like one day i was thrilled to get into the 190s... and then 180s... and now here I am in the 140s at goal. Some of the new shape has to be due to my new workout (a class where I do 30 minutes High Intensity cardio and 30 means weights or body weigh stuff).  So through jenny craig and adding some healthy exercise - I arrived here at goal. I never imagined goal would be a size 6. My sister and I went dress shopping for another cousin's upcoming wedding... And it was clear I needed a size 6 dress. woo hoo.. so thrilling, I know I must sound insane. Like - some of you - just skip the blog because enough already, Sue we get it your thin.   but for the newbies.. I swear this program works. It is 85% Food and 15% exercise. The biggest issue I face is food.. and Jenny has helped me with that!! As I am in maintenance - yup this is where a lot of work begins.

I am taking it slowly. I do meals on my own and Jenny foods  so it's a mix. I feel so satisfied with the JC food that I tend to stick to it.. I am branching out and will do more and more MOMOs with the help of the forum and the help of my JC counselor...

 

Anyway, I read alot of people complaining about the slow loss ( I bet I was one of them back in the day).. And the forum gang were here to tell me - it's ok.. You Got This!! And slow and steady wins the race. I definitely won the race!And there's room for all of you in the Winner's Cirlce! Am I glad the weight loss was slow? I think the answer is yes. It's helping me stick with it... eat the right amount of foods and learn portion sizes. So i am glad it is off. I am sooo glad I joined jenny. Every day I put on a workout outfit and I am astounded I get to look like this! YAY JENNY!!! Thank you forum friends - You all are wonderful..

 

My cousin's graduation was very nice! He was glad my sister and I flew there (DC) to attend. I'm very glad to be back home..

 

Anyway thought I would share my new Chicos outfit.. I also bought the pants in black. Love them

I love reading about your excitement.  I could read it over and over again.  

 

I remember when you kept wearing the same outfit from your before picture when you started losing weight.  I bet you would get lost in that outfit, now!
