Shout Out to Jen!!!!
Last night I went to Jen's to pick up some clothes that she has shrunk out of. Well, to my surprise I ended up with tons of clothes! Thank you so much, Jen! I will post some pics soon with me in a few of my new threads. My husband was amazed when he saw me walk in the door with two gigantic bags filled with my new loot. I also received a kick ass puffy coat which came in handy this morning, it's been so cold. The funny thing is that I was telling Dan on Sunday that I wanted to get a puffy coat next year since I won't fit in the coat I have now! Awesome!!
So the best part is that I can now say that I have officially gone down a size - from a 22 to a 20! With Jen's generous donations I will be fabulously chic in a size 20. I work in a very casual office, we wear jeans, but sometimes I miss the days of having to dress for work. Luckily most of the clothes that I received were really nice dress pants, skirts and dresses.
Once I got done my little fashion show last night with Dan, I was telling him how much this blogging community means to me. I was a member of Weight Watchers off and on since I was 16 or so. I went to all the weekly meetings but never really got anything from the experience. To me going weekly was really just to get weighed in - the meetings never really helped me. Don't get me wrong, I learned little tricks that were helpful and that I still use today. I just never really felt connected to any of the people. It is so strange that now I feel such a strong connection to all of you - people I have never met or have only met once or twice. Your comments and blogs are what keep me going, what motivates me, thank you so much for being here for me!
