So, my boss said last summer if I lost 50 pounds, he would buy me anything I wanted up to $300. Originally I wanted a Michael Kohrs purse. I've never had a name brand purse and I thought that would be so much fun to have. But, as the pounds came off, other needs became more on the front burner - like SMALLER Clothes.
So, He asked me what I wanted. I told him, "honestly, as much as I would LOVE to have that purse, I really need clothes. Could I just have a visa gift card so I can go bargain shop?" He produced that card on Friday!
Today, I went and got my hair done by a long time friend. It's a bit of a drive for me (almost an hour one way) and that's why I don't usually get her to do my hair. But, that was my reward to myself for losing 50 pounds. She did an awesome job - what do you think?
I then went shopping. I am a HUGE bargain shopper. Guess what? I am only about 10 pounds from being in a size 16. I was able to pull a skirt up, but couldn't zip. That's ok - I cried because it is in reach!!!!! 5 pounds would get it zipped. 10 pounds will fit perfect. I WANT in a 16 by my birthday. My birthday is March 1st, so I don't know if that will happen. But, I declare the entire month of March my birthday month so if I can do it by the end of March I will be HAPPY!.
Anyway, I spent $200 of the gift card and I was able to get 6 outfits, completely mix and matchable plus a few other tops, undergarments, and accessories. All for 200 bucks. Check out the clothes:
I have $100 left of the gift card. I am going to save it for when I it size 16 so I can buy a few things then. All of these items I'll be able to take in so I will be able to wear them for a while.
Ok, so here is why some of you wanted to read this update.... my latest before/after picture: (I'll take a picture next week in one of my new outfits with my new hairdo). THANK YOU #BELVIQ for making a dream a reality
