It was my birthday a weeka go. My dh wanted to get me something. So I thought hummm maybe a new pair of goal jeans to fit in to. It really helps keep me going. So we went shopping. He loves levis on a women so we had to hed in that dirention. I have been wearing most 14s give a bit on the cut. So I thought hummm a size 12 would be a good goal . Not to far away so i can get into them,. Well we walked away with two pair of 12s. One I wore out that NIGHT for my birthday and a pair I need a few more pounds to waer comfortably. I had to FYI my gfs about my tight jeans. Why I was wearing them for my DH.But they all said they looked fine. I am 1.5 pounds from my first long time goal of getting to 180. I don't know where I am going to go from there. I think take every 5 pounds as I go and see how I am feeling. I really just want to be happy and not roll out of everyting I wear. Also be at a weight I can live with not live for. I like my curves. I started at a size 20 - 22

Heres a picture of me at 185 the newest one I have
One of me last sunday at my inlaws for my birthday at 183

LOVE those jeans stories! There's something SOOO thrilling about new jeans IN A SMALLER SIZE that just makes a gal's day! GREAT idea to get the jeans that are a bit snug. You'll fit in them in no time! I'm almost in 16s, but it will be awhile before I arrive at 12s. I can't remember when I wore a 12!

Congrats on the size 12 jeans, you look great! And there is truly something magical about the jeans thing.

I just bought a pair of size 12 pants for work from Ann Taylor this week myself - wasn't expecting them to fit yet, but they (almost) do! I am so excited about being able to shop at Ann Taylor again.

Enjoy your success.

=D! It's a good feeling. I can't wait to get back into my 11's n_n Or a size 18 would be nice, too!

But when I saw your pictures I thought, "She is really pretty (like foreign hot!)"

XD Keep going! Only a little more and your husband will have no choice but to act like a 16 year old again.
