Good for me!

Putting this here because no one here really wants to here it:

Last year at this time, I had somehow injured my hip and it really hurt to walk, sit, get up — anything. When I finally went to the doctor they chalked it up to my arthritis, gave me a cortisone shot and sent me on my way. Over the past year I have managed to rehab it on my own and lose 30 pounds (which I’m sure helped the hip!).

I walk 3 miles regularly now and today I hiked another 2 miles with a friend. AND — I had been pinning up capris and trying to shrink the in hot water and a hot dryer with only marginal success. Today, I went to Walmart and saw capris on sale for $10 each. Nice khaki ones I can wear to school. I couldn’t try them on in the store, so I tried to measure them on what I was wearing. I had to get a size Large. I haven’t worn a large in years. The capris I had on were 1x.

I am by no means skinny — I’m still working on about 8 more pounds — and I won’t be skinny then either! But — I will be at a weight that I feel I can maintain.

I’m proud of myself!

Good for you for sure! That's amazing. Congratulations, that is a huge accomplishment. I'm excited that you got new pants too. My pants can still fit/can't fit into the next size down for many pounds.

You know things only shrink when you don't want them too!

Congrats on the weight loss and getting that hip in shape. I really need to do this too! My left hip will always be a hot mess because I broke it 7 years ago and have 3 screws. Right hip has been bothering me. If I would just get in a walking routine it wouldn't hurt as much!
