Height: 5'9"

Default Never thought I would be so happy to wear 18 jeans!

But I am!!

So I started this year at an undetermined size - I mostly wore those Lane Bryant Right fit jeans, in which I was a Blue 4T, but I honestly think I was lying to myself about that - because only two pairs of Blue 4T fit, and those were the most frequently worn ones (read: most stretched out), and even at that, I hated washing them because they became too tight! I had a pair of rigid no stretch 20 jeans, that I could not get past my knees. So I am thinking I was at least a 24, if not a 26. In complete denial.

A few months ago, while still wearing those Blue 4T jeans, I noticed they were becoming HUGE. I went for it, and tried on those rigid 20 jeans. They were tight, but by golly they did fit. In May, they fit well enough I did wear them out to a couple things. I admit, I am so sick of stretch jeans LOL!

I went down to a Blue 3T, and those are getting pretty comfy - loose even, but still comfortable. And I had a couple pairs of 18s, that were just too tight still the last time I tried them on. On a lark, I tried them on just now - and they fit! And fit well! Not even with cramming! I tried on those rigid 20s which haven't been worn at all this summer - and they are too big! Too big in the waist, low belly and butt. Even the thighs!

I just wanted to share my elation. I've doubled my wearable jeans now from 2 to 4 pairs. I can't wait to have 0 pairs that fit so I can go shopping!!

Thanks for letting me share!
Going for the 2-teens!

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip Toe if you must, but take the step.

Wiping the slate clean for 2013!

One for every 5 lbs. lost.
