Very Excited

The other day, I was looking for something to wear. I came across a skirt that I love, but have never been able to wear. I bought it at a garage sale three years ago, it was to small at the time, but I was working hard at losing weight, so I figured I'd fit in it soon. Well, I ended up pregnant.
After Matthew was born, I tried fruitlessly to lose weight, I just kept gaining. I ended up giving away or selling all my "skinny" clothes, but I held on to that one skirt.

When I came across it a few days ago, I decided to try it on and see how close it was to fitting. Well, its not close to fitting- it fits perfectly! Its a size 18 and not a 18W! For reference, when we moved up here I was size 24W! I cannot express how great this feels! I hit a small plateau weight wise for a couple weeks, but when I stepped on this morning, down another pound. :D

The only bad thing about this is I'm quickly running out of clothes to wear! The jeans I bought a month or so ago are to big now, and I really hate to run out and spend money on more clothes when I'm going to (hopefully) shrink even more over the next few months.
My first big goal is to be below 200 pounds. I'm only 28 pounds away from that 199 number. :)
I haven't been below 200 since Connor was born. His last prenatal appt I weighed in at 201.
