Well, Saturday was a milestone day for me.
I was out shopping and ran into Costco to look for a waffle iron. Why, yes, I can actually go to Costco for just ONE thing and leave with just that ONE thing! But, not this time. LOL
They didn’t have any waffle irons (they had the one I wanted on the website but I was hoping it was in the store – but that’s not important) so I went through the middle where all the clothing is, to head for the baby wipes (the coupons I was handed at the door had boxes of Huggies at $6 off!)
I spotted yoga pants for $19.99… hmm… I do need a pair that fits better for the gym. They were sized 8, 10, 12, L, XL etc. I picked up the L and held it up. That was bigger than the Large pair I currently wear. So grabbed the 12… well… it looked like it would be okay. And they are stretchy, right?
Also picked up a pair of pyjamas in Large as I have no winter ones – all of my old ones went to Goodwill or the trash several months ago.
Went and grabbed two boxes of wipes and headed for the till.
I did get my waffle iron at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
When I got home I tried on the yoga pants before washing them… I left the size label on for effect. HOLY CRAP… They fit perfectly!
I have NEVER EVER been a size 12 as an adult. When I was 10 I was wearing my mother’s clothes which would have been size 12… yes, at 10 years old.
So this is pretty exciting!
I’ve gone from a maximum of a size 28 to a size 12.
Since December 2015 I have dropped 60 pounds after changing to LCHF (low carb, high fat) way of living to control my diabetes. It is controlling my diabetes very well – I am staying in range for all my blood sugar readings. And this side effect of the weight loss is exciting, as well as good for my overall health.
