So, before Christmas, I ripped the sole off my favourite boots, and intended to replace them as soon as I could. I didn’t end up having time to go to Metrotown until Boxing Day, and I went, knowing it was going to be nuts. I was also planning to go to La Vie En Rose, because Mr. Grumpiface got me a gift card. I didn’t really have high hopes for that though, because I figured they’d be picked dry by about 10am.
So, I went and wormed my way through the insane crowds of people who all walk REALLY SLOWLY to get to Devon Shoes, which is where I bought my boots before. So, I got there, grabbed my boots and noticed that everything in the store was 50%. That meant that all of the pretties were suddenly affordable! Possibilities opened up, the evil laughter bubbled in my heart. (Sorry, Mr. Grumpiface!)
And then I saw them – the boots that I have been lusting after since I first entered the fetish scene. I know at least two other people who have these boots, but that’s not uncommon on the fetish scene. But, I have never bought them, not because I couldn’t afford it, but because my legs were too fat to be able to close the boots. But, with the last 5 months of strength training & cardio, I thought I would check to see how far I would still have to go to get the boots to fit. So I put them on, and they just… fit.
So, this is a small victory, but it’s a significant one for me. I’ve been wanting these boots for three years, and wanting to be able to fit into them for three years. And now I can. *happy dance*
So, this is making me even more amped for the new year. Let’s see how much more progress I can make this year. Bring it on, 2014.
