I was shopping with some friends tonight... as a newish size 16, it's still a novelty to be able to shop in "normal" non-plus size stores. I realized at one place that I had brought in a ton of shirts, but no pants to wear with when I stepped out to consult. My friend said "Just wear these jeans, they're 14s." I haven't been shopping for jeans in awhile... I've been wearing a pair of 16s, but stopped buying pants because it's summer and because pants are so hard to fit. Dresses and skirts last through more lost lbs. Anyways, I said "Whatever, they're never gonna zip, but at least I can walk out." And they actually zipped. And looked good -- a 16 would have been too big! So, I bought my very first pair of size 14 jeans today!
(Well, since like 17 years ago...)
