Oh, by the way, I wanted to share another little victory: I'm now on the FOURTH notch in the belt and it's a little loose! Gonna need a new belt soon!
Also, all my size 14s are too big. Going clothes shopping on Friday for a couple pairs of pants and some tops as I whittle my waist down. And possibly some new shoes....because a girl can never have too many shoes. (But seriously, I do need some new fall/winter work shoes so this is totally reasonable. Sandal season is winding to an end.)
