Big NSV Today

Please do not fret. I have not been injured in anyway. I know this blog is all about me but I am getting sick of seeing my own face on this blog (that and the picture made it look like I had some weird growth in my neck and I did not want to frighten you). But the picture has significance.

As most of you know I teach 1st grade. Well the student council is selling a new shirt. So after school, I went to the teacher's room who is selling them and told her I would like to buy one. She looked me dead in the face and said "a size medium, right?"

Now I wanted to laugh outloud. I refrained. Sidenote - this is a new school for me this year and most of the people do not know how big I used to be, especially this teacher because she just got back from maternity leave.

I asked to see a medium. It looked a little small but I decided if I tried it on and it looked like a fat girl in a little shirt, I would exchange it for a large. She agreed.

Here is the wild-ass part....wait for it.....it fit! And it was not even skin tight. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT I CAN WEAR A MEDIUM T-SHIRT!!! Now I am not totally delusional, I am convinced they run at least a little big. However, I have been a teacher for 6 years and buying these shirts for 6 years. The ones I just cleaned out of the closet were 2X (one was even a 3X but it was big on). Me. I went from a 2X to a medium. How whack is that?

Okay, I am over myself. So that is the picture. My new medium shirt. Giddy up! Kinda makes me want to wear it everyday.

In other news, I have a new obsession. Dried mango. I am a self-proclaimed fruit hater. I eat it once a day because it is "healthy" but that was before I tried the dried mango. Most delicious food on Earth. Holy crap is it good. Kinda high in calories but no fat and full of vitamin C. I gave up my Chex Mix bar that I eat after dinner for it. And those things are super good. What has become of me? This is how I know I am a changed person. A medium shirt and craving dried mango. Miracles do happen!

Amelia said...

I love it!! You should be so proud of yourself!!! :o) It's interesting that your mind still hasn't completely re-set to the fact that you are a thin person now. That probably takes a while.

I hope you continue to celebrate your success, and thanks a lot for this post! It's very inspiring, and it makes me feel hopeful that I can have a similar story to tell at some point down the road. :o)

By the way, I agree with you about the dried mango. It's DIVINE!! Thanks for reminding me.

Welcome to the MEDIUM club! lol I just donated all of my winter clothes from last year- some of them 2x! Feels good! :)

Karen said...

Congrats! Doesn't it feel good to wear an "M?" I couldn't believe it when I got there either!

PS I also love dried mango!

Jenn said...

You, my lady, are SKINNY!!! Better get used to it! :-)

That's freaking awesome! M! Wow! Well done, yo! I'm pretty sure that's a size I'll never see :D I'd be content with an L :)

I'm not a fan of the dried mango. Too salty for my tastes. Dried apricots are my ideal dried fruit :) Especially after a few beers. :D
