I was a fan of lululemon before this story came out because they really do make beautiful and functional workout gear, but this is an amazing testimony to their brand. Congrats on meeting your goal, Katie!!
I have to share the nicest thing that has ever happened to me in a store before. I stopped by #lululemon today to try on some of their athletic clothing. Many people don't know this, but it's always been a dream of mine to wear their apparel, and was a huge motivator for me when I was trying to lose weight. The clothing is gorgeous and completely my style. I was always too large to fit into any of their things before, but went in on a whim today. I started speaking to the sales clerk John about my weight loss journey, and he told me he had a feeling the clothes would fit. I was kind of skeptical, but he kept assuring me that he sees all different shapes come in, and that he thinks they would work for me. Sure enough the size 12s were perfect and also the nicest leggings I've ever put on my body. I almost cried in the dressing room, because two years ago I would have laughed had someone said a 12 would fit. It was a monumental moment, and one I'll never forget. Yes, this would be my definition of a #nonscalevictory. I came out knowing I was going to put them back. $128 for leggings seems kind of crazy even though they fit like a dream. The store manager came over and told me they were gifting me the leggings. That I had a beautiful heart, and they were so proud of me for losing #160pounds. I broke down in the store. Not the pretty kind of tears, but huge ugly tears. I'm speechless. There are great and wonderful people in this world, and they don't know that they gave me so much more than just leggings today. #princetonlululemon you are unbelievable and a real class act. You have done wonders for my spirit, and my heart is deeply touched. #payitforward #happytears #journeytofit
