I've written before about frustrations with the scale, something that anyone who's tried to lose weight probably knows about. It's easy to forget that some changes aren't measured on a scale.
We all have that outfit that we hang on to hoping that someday maybe it might fit again. This morning, that skirt fit. I didn't plan to wear it, I didn't even plan to try it on but something made me take it out of the closet and put it on. This is a skirt I bought about 18 months ago. I've worn it once - and that one time required some control top pantyhose and it was still kinda tight. Today - it fit no shapewear required. I didn't wear the skirt to work, it's a little short to wear to the office without tights and I refuse to wear tights when it's this nice outside. Instead I wore a different skirt. On a whim, riding the high from the skirt that suddenly fits, I tried on a shirt that has been just a little bit too snug for comfort. It fit too!! Off I went to work today wearing my new shirt (never before worn) and my great black pencil skirt and I felt fabulous!
