Default size Large scrub pants!!

just wanted to brag a bit, hehe.... I started 14 months ago wearing a snug 3X, and a baggy 4X pair of pants at work. (I am in the medical field). The 4 X scrubs seriously depressed me. I mean, every time I woud fold them to put them away, I would cringe and want to cry because of the girth of these pants. It was a constant reminder of how big I was and how far I had to go. I have been trucking along here going down in sizes and with each new size, I have felt more and more relief. so, today I am wearing a Large for the first time no X involved. Just a LARGE!! and it feels awesome!!!! I hope this motivates someone, because words cant express how good it feels to get rid of that X

I know EXACTLY how good that feels, when I bought new scrubs a couple months ago, I got XL instead of the 3X I was used to

Woohoo!!! Congrats! Our scrubs are color-coded so you can tell people's sizes by looking at the color of the tie. It is very satisfying to go down! Congrats again!

One big red flag for me was when XL scrubs were getting snug, and to get a size bigger, I'd have to put in a SPECIAL REQUEST. Since I'd be the only one wearing them. In the whole clinic.

:carrot for YOU!

I was walking through a department store yesterday and commented on how I long for the day when I can get out of that small section of ugly fat clothes and into the rest of the store where all the pretty, normal size clothing lives. I just want to shop and shop and shop!!

Congratulations to you on your success. Here's to a size medium!!

I can't believe this!!! OMG! You might as well wear a sign that says how much you weigh and what size you are.

Anyway... congrats on losing the X!!!
