O.M.G!!!!!!

I had the BEST DAY in a looooong time! I don't even know
where to start...today was the final weigh in for the love myself challenge, and I weighed in @ 197.8! So down about 10 lbs in this 8 week challenge, not too shabby, I'll take it!
Now onto this picture...I went to the mall today, for some reason I wanted some skinny jeans. I went to New York & Company and tried on a pair 18 long and lean skinny jeans, wait for it...too big! I ask the sales associate for a 16 loud and proud, she comes back and hands me a 14 and says they were out of 16's, I laugh but say thank you. I decide, what the hell let's try on the 14's....and look THEY FIT!!! I don't remember ever having a pair of 14's in my closet, the last I remember was being a 16 in high school.
It's hard to get over all of these scale and non-scale victories I have been having lately...I can remember about 9 months ago crying in the lane bryant dressing room because the size 22 pants were too tight, and now I'm crying in dressing room's because I am so happy that 14's fit.
I was always a confident bigger girl, and was never ashamed of my body, but lately the confidence is sky high. Thursday night I was hosting speed dating, and was short about 3 guys. I decided to walk around the bar (by myself) and flirt with boys to try and get them to join. I picked up 3 guys!! I didn't and think twice about, I just went up to a big group of hotties, and laid the old college charm on them and it worked!
Hope everyone had a good weekend, and I'm glad our Hawaii bandsters are safe! You were in my thoughts and prayers!

  3. GREAT JOB! Woot indeed. That's always exciting. I think I'm going to get some new jeans when I get home from vacation as well. I'm down to my last pair that fits again.

  6. So great! I'm edging on the verge of fitting into some 14's so I can't wait to get there! We just recently got a New York and Company near by so I may have to go try them out! :) You are doing so great!

  7. Awesome Kristen! For whatever reason 14's seem so normal. I have a pair of 16's that feel a little loose and I can't believe soon I'll get to do what you did.
    Congratulations on your loss - you're doing great.
