Another Mini Goal Reached!!!

(No, my hair isn't done yet)
 Hello Blogger Friends,

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.


P.S. If you have goal pants/skirt/whatever, something I wish I'd done is to take a picture of how they fit to begin with. That way you'll get a really gratifyinng look at where you came to where you've arrived!


  1. I am sooooo happy and excited for you!!!! GREAT JOB!!! Not sure if you know but, at my heaviest, I weighed almost 250 and wore a size 22... I NEVER knew how it felt to NOT shop in plus sizes as an adult until I took control....Now I am in 10/12 and vow to NEVER revisit my former plus sized self. Keep an item of your plus sized clothing. It will be a great piece of encouragement on your "fat" days!!! KEEP ON GIRL!!!

  2. @Stephanie! Thank you so much for sharing that! I saw an old picture, but I didn't know how much you were at your heaviest! What a great accomplishment! I love your advice on keeping a piece of my plus-sized clothing! I definitely will be doing that! Hooray to getting and staying fit!!!
