Vanity sizing is outta control!!!!!!!!

I just fit my fat *ss into a size 8 pair of jeans from the gap! They are zipped and everything! (Yes I have a major muffin top, but that's ok)

Y'all this is insane! These are supposed to be my my "single digit goal jeans". I should not be fitting into them for another twenty pounds!

This sh*t is redonkulous!!!!!!!!!

You look freakin' SKINNY!!!! And that's totally an NSV!!!!
I'd be hugging those jeans so tight because I'd be in love with them LOL!!

I haven't been in single digits since I was in kids' clothes a thousand years ago. I'm following you the whole way, Mozzy!!

(Is that my shadow there? Nope, just Elvis following me again! )

LOL. I did the same thing. I saw some shorts I liked the other day and I refuse to buy them in my current size (42) because I already have 4 pairs that are a few sizes too big (46), but I still wear them. I want to skip over my current size and the size below. So, I bought them in size 38. When I got them home I put them on and I was able to zipper them up and button them. They were tight, and I won't wear them until I lose another 15 to 20 pounds. But I have something to look forward to!

Started out at 405.5 on 7/31/12. Then lost 156 lbs to get down to 249.5 by 7/31/13. In the past year I have put back on over 40 pounds and reached a high of 291.5. But I have recommitted myself and quickly took off ten pounds by 7/31/14. I am now trying to take off the weight I put back on, and then lose the rest of the weight I was originally trying to lose. ---- Starting weight / Low weight / Current Weight / Goal Weight

You better save those size 8s because when you are done with them, one of us here will be begging you for them.

I do love me some vanity sizing. But I hate the opposite of vanity sizing! I tried on a New Balance workout spring jacket yesterday and the XL was so tight. They had an XXL but mentally I couldn't even consider buying it even if it was just something that ran small. Maybe that's why they had a whole rack of them on clearance!

LOL!

I'm kind of surprised to hear that you think the Gap is doing vanity sizing, I always thought they ran normal to small. But hey, cool!

Congrats you size 8!

New Balance shoes run small too. I used to buy them for my kids and they needed about a size a half bigger in NB. And then it would mess me up because then I would pick up other shoes for them using the NB size and they'd be swimming in them. No more NB!

Congratulations - that's huge - obviously not your weight, but being in single digits. I believe I was 11 the last time I was in single digits.

Awesome NSV, vanity-sized or not!!! I cannot imagine ever hitting the single digits, seriously.
