I had to go shopping yesterday to buy some new clothes since the old cliche' "I have nothing to wear" is real here since I lost(drumroll please) 48 pounds!!!!!! as of today!!. I had a ball buying stuff.I never used to because I really hated what I had to choose from,but now watch me spend,spend spend!!!(LOL)

I even tried on bathing suits for the first time in about 15 years!! Have to admit,not too d**n bad if I say so myself!(LOL) Needed one for the trip to Florida tomorrow.

Haven't felt this good about myself in a very long,long time and it feels soooooo good!!!!

Woo-hoo Micki! You have done soooooooo fanstastic! And have been such an inspiration. If you do not mind me asking - what size clothes were you and are now in or at least, how many sizes did you drop? (Sorry if I asked too personal of a question, too.)

You enjoy yourself on this vacation and go ahead and flaunt yourself a little on that beach - you deserve to! - Jessie
