Widdle, Waddle

And the wonders of Photoshop.  God bless it. 

Losing all this weight, certain jiggly bits have appeared. I've never been ashamed of my body, I always exuded a lot of self confidence, but as I've lost the weight I've become more reserved in my approach to everything.  Waddle included, I now feel the need to Photoshop so I know how I'll look after I have plastic surgery on the arms....
This morning, I had a new experience.  I tried on a beautiful dress at Saks Fifth Avenue.  It was a new high.  I've never experienced anything like it before.  As a fashion forward teen, I really loved clothes, but I could never fit into anything except Lane Bryant.  It was a dream come true to me to be in Saks and have an associate say to me, "You're a size 8 on top."  I swear to you, the look on my face had to have been priceless.  I didn't believe her, but I did... but I didn't.  I knew that I was around a 10 or 12.  But still, never in my life have I had those words uttered to me and never did I think it would happen.  It has, and I'm pretty darn happy about it.
