Default NSV: 24 to 12

I'm a little bit in shock right now but I had to share the freakin' amazing news that I just tried on and am currently wearing size 12 jeans!!! A year ago today my 24W's were getting a too tight, today size 12 is a bit tight (but definitely wearable in public). Then to make everything happier, I'm at my lowest weight in 10 years! I'm happy dancin' all over my house this morning!!!!


This journey has been so wild, there have definitely been huge ups and downs, but seeing this progress is so motivating and really makes the struggles worthwhile. Thanks so much to everyone here at 3FC for the support and inspiration. Since I found this forum I've learned so much and reading all your stories and posts have been so helpful and motivated me to continue on my journey. Y'all rock!

I took some pictures and voila, this is me at 188lbs wearing size 12 jeans


I was severely camera-phobic for the past few years, so getting a good before picture has been really hard. This is a picture of me taken a few years ago when I was wearing a size 20/22 (I'm guessing around 280-290 lbs)
