Yay, I've received new hand-me-downs!!! It's a good thing too, since the other ones are starting to get big! My recent treasures came from Keelie when she came over to visit/talk accountability this week. It was wonderful to check-in and have her help me to get back on track with eating well and tracking. And I got unexpect clothes out of it too! Yay! And as I've said, I love hand-me-downs!!!! It's the best feeling ever to be able to wear someone else's clothes when you've never been able to do so your entire life.

I got these black pants from her. I'm not sure if they are supposed to be gouchos, but they are on me. Oh, and I LOVE THEM. They are stretchy and so comfy! And, wait for it....they are a size 14/16!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't been in that size in....pretty much ever.

Then I got this shirt and vesty thing too. I thought the shirt was too tight on it's own, and hung to closely to the back fat rolls, but the vest covered that up terrificly. And the vest is a LARGE. Whoo hoo. I couldn't be more excited. I was told today that these size 20 pants look terrible. I'm pretty sure this was a compliment on my weight loss, and a not so subtle hint to never wear them again. Matter of fact, I believe I was also told this was the last time to wear them. They don't even look that bad to me. lol.

And yes, I was taking pictures of myself in the bathroom at work. lol. I had to be quick because you never know when someone will be walking in. I'm pretty sure they'd think I was strange if they caught me taking pics of myself. Ha.


  1. You look so awesome! And you're like a different person from one pic to the next... Love the hair up and down! And the glasses are super fun. :)

  2. You look absolutely stunning. You should seriously be proud of yourself. :)

  3. LOL I totally sneak photo shoots in the work bathroom and I'm always worried someone will walk in catch me and think I'm weird :) I've been following forever (I just can't comment from work), congratulations!!!! It's so important to have a true friend who is your accountability partner, it's also an amazing blessing that God give us!!!!

  4. You look amazing!! Yeah for hand me downs!!!

  5. I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!! I know you are feeling so much better, you are definitely looking great, and I know you are happier. You and God can do this!!! Forever!! :) Wonderful job - so proud of you for taking such good care of yourself. :)
