It’s a little hard to see, but I am getting smaller.
This is my favorite “little black dress”.
It’s a classic Jones New York dress that is made with impeccable quality and fit me perfectly when I bought it 7 years ago. But I weighed more then than I do now.
I wore this dress to church a couple weeks ago, and my good friend pulled me aside and told me that that was the last day I could wear this dress — my favorite dress. (It looks like a gunny sack on me now — and because of the way the dress is constructed — completely lined with top-stitched princess seams — it would cost more than it’s worth to have it altered)
So I had to memorialize my dress and have this picture taken.
I know I’m still tubby, but officially, I have gone from a size 22 to a size 16.
Not bad, eh?
Well, it would be better if I had some size 16 clothes… but I currently have one pair of jeans that actually fit correctly. I also have a pair of size 14 black jeans that my friend, Gwen, passed on to me after she lost weight — as an incentive for the future.
That future is now closer than before. Woo hoo!
