View Full Version : Size 16! Throwing out the 18s!!

I tried on a pair of size 16 khakis that have been languishing in my closet for over two years, and they fit! And I mean they actually fit, not tight, not pulling, but fit --- woo hoo:carrot:

It is now day 36 of my new lifestyle, and as you can see I am now well into the 160s and I will meet my goal of 130 sometime this summer. I have never, and I mean NEVER been confidant enough to say that, and mean it before. I am so proud of myself, and I know you ladies (and gents ;) ) understand what success means to someone who hasn't had it for awhile.

Have a great weekend!!!

Way to go. I can't wait to get into my 16's again, then my old 14's , then old 12's, lol.....Can't wait. I am in 18's and I am just getting through first week.
You give me motivation :)

I gave away my old 16s and 14's about.... let's see.... 8 years ago. If I still had them, they would be very out of style, I suppose. And trust me, if I still had 12's, they'd be so old they would be dry-rot and falling apart by now!!! :)

Looking forward to buying a whole new wardrobe before the end of this year!!!! Better start saving now!! LOL

That is great! I just can't wait to be able to say that the 18 I just got into are too big. Way to go! Guess I'll be joining you soon.

Hi Backtome!

Last week I bought MY first size 16s, too!:carrot: It is exciting to be able to buy clothes in the Misses Department and the Petites Department and not have to settle for an 18, an 18W or an 18WP!!

When I was 275 I wore size 26WP. :(

Isn't it amazing how nice it is to feel more normal?

Enjoy those khaki pants!:carrot:
