This may not sound like a very big WOW moment but for me it was very emotional. I have only posted a couple of times but I have been around for a while. I was laid off from my job on March 31, 2009 which was ok because it gave me time to have my surgery on May 18, 2009 and recover. I have not really had a need to try on any of my clothes since I have no place to get up and go to everyday. I usually just hang out in my stretchy shorts and a t-shirt. Anyhow, I was on the website a little while ago and was reading about Calli who had just visited a consignment shop and had a wow moment. So I decided to go to my closet and try on some of my old work clothes. The idea was to find a consignment shop in my area to try to sell some of my dress clothes to in order to get a little money. To my utter delight I have nothing left in my closet!!!! Everything there was literally fallling off of me!! OMG, I started to cry!! I knew in my head that I have lost 85 lbs but in the mirror sometimes I still see my old self. When I put those clothes on it hit me. I really have come such a long way and it will only get better. Thank you to everyone that posts on here. The support you give to everyone is just amazing.
