Fantastic Friday!

Again, I  know I'm really late in posting this. 

Last Friday's fantastic Friday was another pound GONE!!  Putting my total at 35lbs!  =)  I have a  number in my head (I'm 5 lbs from reaching it) and when I reach it I'm going to post my numbers!  I haven't had the guts to do that yet!!  But, I'm feeling more and more confident now.  I am NOT that person anymore.  I will NOT go back!  I KNOW it!! 

I celebrated this lovely Friday with a new hair cut, new clothes, and a new purse!  =)  Clothes shopping was my favorite!  I finally decided I needed to go get some new (smaller) clothes.  Honestly, I had been putting it off for fear that I would still be too big for the smaller size.  Well, I picked up the next size down from what I had been wearing.  And right behind that size was the next size down.  I decided to pick that size up, too!  Not sure why, just felt the need to try!  I thought it would give me an idea of how much further I needed to go before I could fit into them.

So, I took my items into the dressing room.  I decided to try on the smallest size first.  Just to get it out of the way.  I told myself as I was putting them on, "Now don't be upset, you know they aren't going to fit, and that's ok!"  Well, I put them on, and they came all the way up with no problem.  WHOA!!  Next, I go to button them, and they buttoned right up without a problem.  SO SHOCKED!!!  I'm still amazed as I type this almost a week later that I'm wearing this size!  It's been 10 years since I have worn this size!!  I LOVE it!!  I am re-motivated ALL over again!!! 

Thank you AGAIN Pearl & Serene for writing this book!!  I love you so much for it!!


  1. What an encouraging post. I got down a size pretty quick because I am nursing and it was pregnancy wieght. Well those smaller jeans got dirty yesterday and the only clean ones I had were a size up. I had to roll the waist band. It was nice. 35 pounds is just incredible.

  2. That is incredible!!! I can't wait til I can say 35 lbs down! It has to be so gratifying to wear two sizes smaller :) You are doing great! Keep it up!

  3. Wow! Thank you so much for encouraging us all!!! That must be a great feeling to drop two sizes!!! Can't wait for you to share pictures. Keep up the good work!

  4. Thank you all!! I have to say it's very surreal to say that I've lost 35 lbs. I can't believe I've really done it. I know that if I can do it, ANYONE can do it!! =) You will ALL be telling me you reached 35lbs, too before you know it!!
