Six Months Out - Full Body Picture

I fit in my goal dress!!!

So, when I first started my journey, I met a gal at the support group wearing a super cute dress. A few days later, I ran into her during my post op at the surgeon's office and she was wearing the same dress, so I told her it was cute. She offered me the dress and I said Thanks, but no thanks. I told her it would never fit me, but she told me to have faith that it would!

At last week's support group meeting, she told me she had the dress in her car for me. I tried it on today, with absolutely no hope/thought that it would fit today. Well, it does!! LOL

I think it's too young for me, and it's definitely too low cut, but I'm crying because I never in a million years thought this dress would fit me and it does. THIS is a true NSV!!!

Maybe in another 20 or 30 pounds I'll feel differently, but right now, I will not be wearing this dress in public. I'm pumped, though, to see real, tangible results of all the treadmill, exercise, and recumbent bike time I've put into me!

Happy Dancing Today!!


  1. awww man no pictures of the boobies? ::cries::

    1. I can't figure out how to put the pictures in here! :(

  2. What a great story! I love that she gave you the dress, and you surprised yourself by fitting into it. I hope you consider wearing it out and about some time.

    Don't they say that the weight loss makes us look younger? Perfect for the dress that is too young for you. :)

  3. How exciting!! I am so happy for you. I know this must have been an awesome moment!

  4. Love this story! I haven't taken the time to comment before, but I should have. You have such a "real" way of sharing your journey and I have been so inspired by you. Go ahead, rock that dress! Age is just a number, right?

  5. I love this story too! I was just telling my sister the other day, if you have something that looks better on your friend, give it to her. I hope I can do as well as you on your journey. Thanks for sharing.
