Last night I cried...

Tears of JOY!!!

My husband was out of town for a conference so when he got home, he actually noticed a difference. (Or at least he said he did- what a great guy?:) ) But that's not the best part. When we were getting ready for bed, he turned to me and said "Those jeans look terrible on you- you have saggy drawers, don't you have any old pairs of jeans you could fit into?" The jeans I was wearing were a tight size 18 when I started this journey with Healthy Trim.

I am VERY happy to report that right now, I'm sitting in front of my computer wearing a size 14, and they're loose! I tried the 12 (which I haven't worn in over 6 years) and I was able to get them up, but it's still to tight. That's my new goal by the end of October.

It brought me to tears last night- I've opened up into a whole "new" wardrobe of clothes I haven't been able to wear in two years!

So why hadn't I done this for myself yet? I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to even go down one size (I did notice that I could take off the size 18 without undoing the zipper) but I was just nervous that I would get discouraged.

Seeing progress is by far the best feeling. Sure, the Healthy Trim is expensive, but I really feel like it's giving me an old life back, and I'm just going to keep getting smaller and smaller. I really can't believe this.

I hope that all of you are able to experience this soon!!!
