Default Seriously????!!!!???!!!!???

With no further ADO....

I pulled on a pair of size 12 PETITE jeans, shimmied them up over my hips, and ZIPPED THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now granted... I had some major muffin top action going on....

BUT I ZIPPED A PAIR OF SIZE 12s!! (they were my mom's jeans, and so that's why they were petites..... since I'm 5'8" I don't need a petite.)

I mean-- the first time I bought a pair of 20s they were about this tight. I know if I lost 15 more pounds I could wear them out of the house...

I honestly and really and truly believe that I'm actually getting sort of close to a normal size!

Congratulations!! I had the same experience yesterday. You and I seem to head down similarly in size. I'm wearing some 14's and some of them I will wear publicly maybe next week. But I was able to zip a pair of 12's yesterday! 12's to me are skinny jeans, so yeah, I'd say you're heading into normal territory if you're not already there!!!
