A Small Victory

As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, I haven't seen many changes in my body or clothing in the last few months. Today, finally, the Universe sent me a small "Atta Girl!"

A couple of years ago, I bought the warmest, comfiest sweaters ever at L.L. Bean. They were my favorites. Wearing them was like wearing a hug. By the end of last winter, though, those sweaters were swimming on me--more like muumuus than sweaters. So I gave them to Goodwill, so they could keep someone else warm.

Today, I stopped at L.L. Bean to buy a new sweater. (Actually, I went to buy slippers--which I did--but I couldn't resist the sweaters, too.) I thought I'd need a sweater one size smaller than my old ones. I was wrong! Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

I've never been happier to be wrong. The sweater that fit me best was TWO SIZES smaller than my old ones. And, best of all, it did not come from the Plus Size section. It was a "normal" size. (WOO HOO!)

I still need to buy most of my clothes in Plus Sizes, but wow! What victory to know that I have at least one piece of my wardrobe that's more "minus" than "plus"!
