I'm now in a size 20! Crazy to think that I went from a size 26 and already down 4 sizes in under 7 months. I haven't been in this size since around the time I got married, close to 9 years ago. Feels really good! Next up is a few new tee's to order in a size XL before I declare I'm in that size for tops, I usually get my shirts from Teepublic. I like to do a good check in the size before I cross it off my "NSV Bucket List", like I didn't cross off the size 18 but I did cross off the size 20.
On top of the pant size NSV and being able to shop in a regular store, I crossed a major fear off my "NSV Bucket List".... sit in a booth. I have been afraid of this moment for a couple years now. Several years back I went to a restaurant, only to find out I no longer could fit in the booth seats. I had to ask for a table after the hostess clearly saw I couldn't sit in the booth. I just wanted to hide under the table and cry, I was so embarrassed. Today I bit the bullet and decided to try a booth seat... in the back of my mind, I didn't think I was going to fit and I was afraid of feeling embarrassed again, but I did it anyways. Not only did I fit in the booth, I had lots of room!!
Also, I did really with my eating at lunch. I decided to order something that sounded good, but chose to focus on my portion and moderation. The left pic was before and the right is what I left behind (well, I brought the rest home for my husband). Score! I ate until I was satisfied but not full, by the time we got to the car I was feeling full but not stuffed. I call that a win today!
