Three years ago Penny got me a ticket to see our favorite performer in the world, PINK! It was such an awesome evening and I had the most amaaaaaazing time (I’m already counting the days until she is in Rotterdam again!). There was only one down side… one thing that sort of put a momentary damper on the experience. When I visited the t-shirt stand.
At that time I was still around my highest weight and they didn’t have any sizes bigger than XL, which I knew I could not wear at that time. Not wanting to walk away empty handed, I bought a t-shirt, came home, folded it and put it in my drawer. From time to time over the past few years I’ve gotten it out and tried it on to see if it fit yet, but I’d usually end up putting it back in the drawer with a sigh.
I’ve actually worn it twice before now but both times it felt too tight, my arms didn’t feel right, it was too tight around my lower belly… it just wasn’t comfortable at all. It wasn’t right.
Today I put it on, and it fits. IT FREAKING FITS. It took me three years and one weight loss surgery, but dammit, it fits!!! Not just “I can get it on without ripping it” kind of fits, but “Put into my regular rotation of clothes” fits. SWEET!
I was so excited I didn’t even bother to fix my hair before taking photos to share.
Really should have taken the time to fix my hair haha Oh well, it just goes to show how comfortable I am with all of you! Right? Let’s go with that.
I’m so happy! These small victories along the way really help me and make me feel good. I have about a thousand of course, so it’s one constant celebration over here.
Fitting into ‘normal’ t-shirts has always been a goal, there are so many that I’ve seen over the years and couldn’t have because I just wasn’t going to get it in my size, or didn’t WANT to get it in my size because sometimes plus tee’s just aren’t the same.
Now I must get myself another t-shirt I’ve been waiting to get for a long time. A Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock t-shirt! … and if you don’t know what that is from, you should be ashamed of yourself and I’m not sure we can be friends.
Me and the man of my dreams! Less than two weeks now until our 12 year anniversary and I still totally love the crap out of this dude!
