Leeann And The Three Capri's

Once upon a time, there was a girl. She was losing a bit of weight and found that it was time to start reworking her closet.
She grabbed a pair of size 20 capri's out of her closet, that barely, barely (okay, they didn't really) fit her last summer. They were too big!
Then, she drove to Old Navy and found a cute pair of black capri's. She grabbed a pair, size 18, and toddled off to the dressing room. When she pulled them up, she laughed out loud. They were too big!
So, she walked back out and grabbed a size 16, all the while grinning to herself. It had been a long time since she had gone back out for a smaller size. When she closed the dressing room door and tried on the size 16's, she found that...They were just right!
So, she bought them.
And changed in the van.
Because she loved the way they fit.
The End

That is so awesome!!! Isn't it the best feeling to try on smaller sizes and they fit. It's just more motivation! You rock!!

Btw-I'm SO SO sorry I missed out on your ask you a question for your 300th post while I was gone on vacation. I had very limited access to a computer. The two posts I did do, I did before vacation and just hit publish when I was out there.

When are we gonna have another girls night out?!?!?! The spa sounds nice :)

I need to get some yummy recipes from you to help keep me going. I just went to the store and bought tons of stuff for some recipes I found on blogs/online etc. Hopefully they are good. They are low in points at least

Okay, there's my novel! Again, CONGRATS Leeann you are doing AWESOME on your weight loss!

wow look at you go...and BTW i totally stood up and clapped for you. Jordan came running from the back of the house and asked me what was up. i told her my friend had lost 38 lbs so i was clapping for her.

she looked at me...squinted her eyes and said, "umm you do realize she is not here right?" i said, "yep" and she asked, "is this an imaginary friend?" i said, "nope" and she said, "okey dokie then" and walked away.

it was awesome.

YAY for you!! woooo hooo!!

Loved your story. I'm sure we will be seeing similar stories in the near future. Congrats!

Pam said...

You rock! Good for you. You should have bought the same pair in an even smaller size so you have something to wear in a few weeks when you are EVEN SMALLER!! Yeah for you!

That is GREAT!!! Keep up the great work. Such a great feeling. I love the characters unwillingness to wait until she was home to change. I hope she wasn't driving and changing at the same time!!!
