I felt normal today! I went and tried on matron of honor dresses with a couple of skinny girls and felt normal. We changed in the same fitting room serveral times and zipped each other up. This is one of those girl expiriences that I didn't have before now. I was always too embarassed or uncomfortable. When the sales person asked my size I didn't hesitate. I said 14 or 16, probably closer to a 16. no shame. I found a dress that looks lovely on me and I cannot wait to wear it. For the record the scale was up 2.1lbs today, whatever.
When I look at the pictures from today I realized that I look pretty good, normal sized. Of course I looked bigger than the other 2 girls but not in a shocking way, in a ..we are built differently kind of way. It was really fun! I love love love dresses!
