When I was at my goal weight I had a VERY pretty white dress. At my heaviest I could not even get it over my arms or chest. I knew that when I could fit in that dress again I would be satisfied with the way I looked (no matter what weight I was at). I knew this not because of the size of the dress, or what weight I was when I could fit in it, but because the last time I wore that dress I was at the healthiest point in my life and I looked and felt good. When I moved the dress came with me instead of going into storage with other clothes. I brought it with me as a reminder of my goal. I have lost over 50 pounds since last year and out of curiosity I tried on the dress. Not only could I now fit the dress over my arms, I could pull it down over the rest of me. It doesn't look as good as it should but it is a symbol of a tremendous accomplishment to have gotten this far. I took a picture, and as I lose the rest of the weight I will be taking more. Once I reach my goal I plan on posting the pictures for some "before and after" pics.

Girl, you're incredible!! Way to go!

Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

That is fantastic.

I too have a dress like this. I bought this amazingly beautiful material and my ex-grand-mother-in-law made me a beautiful dress out of it but it was just a little too small for me to wear. Over the years following that I put on even MORE weight due to unhappy marriage and divorce processes. I justt pulled it out of storage THIS WEEK but I haven't yet had the nerve to try it on. I think I am still a little bigger then I need to be to wear it but I hung it on my door to be a reminder. Soon my sweet... very very soon.

That's such an inspiring story! Thanks for sharing it with us! I also have some clothes that I'm keeping, like my favorite skinny jeans. Some of them I really need to go through and get rid of because I'm sure they're outdated. I can't wait to see your before and after photos!
