Pardon the caps and disgusting happiness.
I went to my friend Amber's House today to pick up some clothes she has grown out of...(or shrank out of) (YEA!!!)
One of those was a size 12 pair of jean capri pants.
Now, I did slip on one pair of dress pants that were a size 12.
But they were dress pants...and everyone knows you can fit you and some chinese buffet into a pair of dress pants.
I thought I would try them on because that is what I do when I get stuff from Amber..we have a little fashion show..
I put something on, she being the great friend she is...tells me how fab I look...I say "aw shucks" and then go try something else on..lol.
So I try the pants on...
I say through the door...if I actually get these things up and buttoned, I am going to squeel like a pig.
and I did.
So I did.
I haven't been in a size 12 since 1996.
That is only one size off my goal pant size for going back to ohio and michigan...
Since we were going to have to go back a bit sooner than I thought..I took my fatmaggedon sign down because I didn't think there was any way I would make it by June.
Well, I just may.
so, my husband and i were surfing the internet the last few days and he came across a video called "The wisdom of yoda".
In it was the origin of my quote that I wrote on all my tshirts when I started losing weight.
I watched it, and this is going to sound goofy, but it almost made me cry.
So, I will see if I can either link to it or post it...hold one....
It's like thinking that losing one pound is somehow different than losing 100.
It's just one pound 100 times.
If you think you can't you can't.
If you think you can you can.
Do or Do not, there is no try.
Are you ready to do the 'impossible'
signing off now..
May the force be with you.
