|(No, my hair isn't done yet)|
I was so excited this Saturday!! Why you ask? Well, a few years ago, my aunt was giving away some clothes that were too small. I eyed a pair of size 12 tan slacks that I always admired. So, I took them off of the pile. Sadly, I was never able to fit them. Did that stop me from keeping them and wishing? No! The funny thing is that I wasn't in the middle of losing weight or anything. I just didn't want to part with them! lol. Anywho, somehow they became my goal pants. I have been trying them on here and there for the past few months, wondering if/when I'd finally be able to button them up (They had been waaaayyyy too small by the way. I wasn't even close to being able to button them!) As my weight loss journey has progressed, I slowly began to notice that I was able to bring the pants closer and closer to buttoning. Then about one month ago, I was able to button them! But they still were too tight. I refused to wear them too tight. So, I patiently waited...until this past Friday, I tried them on and they fit! Yes, they fit! I reached my second mini-goal on this journey; the first being moving from obese to overweight on the bmi scale!!! Yaaayyyy!!! And what perfect timing. I was trying to figure out what I would where to the Mother's Day Luncheon my church ministry team was organizing. I tried on those pants and decided that they would be it! The Mother's Day Luncheon was awesome! We had great worship, fellowship, and word. And, my pants felt great! lol.
Well, I just wanted to come on and share that. I have more to say, but it's late, and I have to get some shut eye. I pray that you all had a great Mother's Day. I sure did. Grace and Peace.
