I am over the moon happy right now. Last night I was looking through my wardrobe, trying to decide what to wear this morning. I pulled out a favorite skirt of mine and stared at it longingly. I have not been able to wear that thing comfortably for some time now.
What the heck, I decided to try it on. I was preparing myself for the argument my thighs and I would be having as I attempt squeezing into it. Hey now…what’s this? It just slid over my thighs and made its way up to my waist without any muss or fuss. Interesting…but what say you, zipper? The answer: ziiiiiip! All the way to the top! Aaaah! Yes! There’s even a little “give” in the tummy area.
Ok, now how about that nice top I just bought (without trying it on)? I held on to the receipt because I was certain a return trip to the store to exchange for a bigger size would be in my future. Here we go, bring on the battle of the arm holes….to my delight, it was a total coup. My arms willingly fit into the arm holes and stood there, in disbelief in front of the mirror. I am wearing a size Medium, and it actually looks nice.
Not sure I understand what’s going on. The numbers on the scale have barely moved, but since I’ve been drinking protein smoothies in the morning, my clothes fit better, and I’m starting to bring items to the seamstress to take in a nip and tuck here and there.
Anybody else have this happen? What are your thoughts on protein powders? They seem to be working for me!
Happy Tuesday, all!
