60# and $9.99
This picture actually tells two stories.
First - As of today, I have lost 60#. I am just amazed. I love how I feel. I am going through clothes like crazy. I go to Salvation Army once in awhile to get clothes because it just doesn't make sense to spend too much money on clothes when they aren't going to be around for long. I take my "used" ones to the Salvation Army also. Its pretty cool what you can pick up there.
This brings me to the second reason for the picture. My boss gave me a gift certificate to one of the malls close to me. I was pretty excited because I wanted to get a few nice tops. I went in to Coldwater Creek (my all time fave) and found this great red jacket/top. It was originally $79.99 on sale for $29.99. It was really a little more than I wanted to pay, but it was a treat so I took it. When the clerk scanned it, it rang up at $9.99 and we both just laughed. She said "It was meant to be, wasn't it!" I agreed - wearing this new top to church today was great! What a bargain!
