I went to the Lane Bryant at the outlet mall for Labor day and ended up getting 3 new outfits that fit me but are sort of tight. I was a size 26 and the ones I got were size 20. I didn't really know what size I was so I just kept trying things on until I found the size that zipped up but were sort of tight. I could wear them now but I don't like my clothes so tight so I will have a nice reward in a month or so. This will motivate me an keep me on track.
Another nice thing I noticed was that I think when I started, my stomach and my boobs were about the same size. Now my stomach is clearly not poking out as much as my boobs.. This was very evident when I was trying on new clothes and I did not notice so much with my older, looser clothes.
