My Weight Loss Journey: Same Dress, Two Years Later


(blob on left, crazy-smiley-lady on right)

The other day, I saw a cute little black dress on sale.
On a whim, I tried it on and was amazed to see
it not only fit but I liked the way I looked in it.
I totally brought it home with me!

It got me thinking about how I don't really SEE a difference yet.
I know I have lost weight because several pairs of pants are now too big
and ones that were too small now fit again,
and some of the too small ones are now too big too!

I dug out this blue dress from my closet.
I bought it to wear to my brother's wedding in 2009.
It fit then, but I felt like a blob.
(a very alone blob)


Decided to try it on and take a photo to compare.
And while I still have a very long way to go,
I can see that this blue dress is fitting me better.
Soon it may be too big!

You are doing excellent Teri!! Keep up the great work. I need to get "back on the wagon" with losing weight. I'm finding it difficult to find the motivation.
