Size 8!

It is that time of the year when it is CRAZY BUSY. I only have a month left of teaching until summer vaction, but I wanted everyone to know that I am still going strong.
I had a few mintues to clean closet and came across a skirt that was a size 8. I decided to try it on and to my amazement it fit!  I started doing the happy dance! I could not believe it so I went over to the mirror to see what I could see.  I was all smiles to see my reflection wearing this cute pencil skirt with a green and white floral scene on it. Now, if it would just get warmer so I can wear it. 
Then, we went over to my sister's for dinner and one of her friends had brought over her formal dresses for special occassions. They were a mixed bag of different styles and colors. My daughter was stunning in the red chinese-style classic dress and forest green dress. I eyed the teal and black sparkly dress, but waited until I got home to try it on.  On the tag was Size 8P. I slipped it on once the kids were put to bed and guess what....
It fit! So happy to be a single-digit size!  It has been years since I fit into a size 8! Whoo- hoo!

Beautiful job!

Can I hear a WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!! So cute that you didn't put on the dress until you were home and the kids were in bed. You are silly, but just like me- would have done the same thing. Hoping we get to see each other next week - over three months is too long and we need to see each others success. I totally know that you have struggled to get to that size! We are so doing this and I am soooooooo glad that we are both having great success!!! Good-bye plateau, hello wonderful!

Staying sooooooooooooo "MO"tivated MO

Awesome! I've been seeing 8's too, but always with a "1" before the 8. Someday, hopefully in the not to distant future, I'll do the size 8 happy dance with you. Great job. Now strut your stuff!
