Default Bought new jeans today

Well, I bit the bullet and went to Target to look for jeans. I ended up with a size smaller--yippee!!

I was really nervous about getting new jeans, even though my old size 20s were baggy. I didn't think I'd lost enough weight to go to a size 18. It's kind of funny because last fall I was wearing drawstring pants because the size 20 pants were too tight and I couldn't face getting size 22. It was great when I started being able to fit in the size 20s, but it's even nicer being in the "teens" again! It's been a loooong time.

All right Sheila! That is just great.

We must be built really differently, cause I'm within three pounds of you, but am nowhere near fitting into an 18. All my weight is in my hips, thighs and behind, -I think I need to lose twenty five pounds to get anywhere near an 18.

Congratulations-you will feel so great wearing them!

Hugs,
Sherry

That is so great!!! Yaaaahooooo!!!

I have jeans that I could wear last year. I am about 10 lbs from being able to wear them! I just can't wait! I swear I could wear them at this weight last time, but they don't fit. I think my "gain" last year ended up in my stomach!!!

Great Sheila! I'm really proud of you. It is always so nice to buy a smaller size. Just one more size down and you'll be shopping in the regular section of the stores, instead of plus sizes or "womens"
