Before!

Another yay me moment....

So I know this blog is sort of turning into me patting myself on the back a lot but you know, I am pretty darn proud of myself lately. :)
I got a 92 on my final exam! Woot! And ended up w/ a 96% in the class overall. Go me. I'm totally doing a happy dance and shaking my *thinner* booty! :D
So, last night I stopped off to pick up some jeans to get me through the next few weeks. I settled on a pair of Levi's... SIZE 8!!! Yes, folks, that is not a typo. I'm in a misses size 8.
I had gone to the mall last week, and was in a 9/10 in juniors (ie, American Eagle, and Aeropostale)...which felt pretty good, but I wasn't about to shell out $40 for a pair of jeans I'd be able to wear for 3 weeks tops.
Settling on a pair of size 8 Levis for $20 seems like a much better deal all around.
You know, I never saw myself getting into these sizes. Ever. I figured if I got to 180 and a size 14/16 I'd be thrilled. And now here I am, looking at sizes I haven't worn since... well never.
I remember in 4th grade wearing a pair of pants that were a size 7. Looking back, they had to be womans size 7, I'm sure of it. 4th grade. I remember weighing 140 lbs. in 5th grade. I'm there almost now. I'm going to be smaller than I was when I was 10 years old!! How does one wrap their mind around that??? I surely can't. Not yet.
I'm doing things I never thought I'd be able to do. :)
