I first started trying on dresses when I hit size 16W back in October because I was so excited about being a size smaller. Dresses never looked very good on me, and I was excited that I actually had a waist that was starting to curve in the right direction.
Purple also happens to be one of my favorite colors, so when I saw the dress in my size, I had to try it on. Fast forward a few months, and I’ve tried on a lot of purple dresses. This shows dresses at 16, 14 and the last one is me today in a size 10. I lost the size 12 photo to a phone fiasco that involves a washing machine… don’t ask. But needless to say, the I’ve been using the purple dresses as a yard stick for my weight loss since we started last September and I love seeing the difference my efforts are making.
I’m about 9 lbs from my original goal. I think when I get there, I’ll have to actually buy a purple dress after I try it on and take that last photo.
