Went shopping at a consignment store for clothes - and I got a bunch of size 14 pants to try on. They all fit me perfectly! I am an average sized woman now!!
That just blows my mind.

Congratulations! For me, when I shop for that size, I still look around to see if the fat people police are going to haul me out of there. But I love not having to go to a special section to shop.

Congratulations! :carrot: Isn't it great? I find it weird being able to shop in more than one shop now (everything I owned before was pretty much from one store only)

I've been overweight since I turned 14 or so so before that I didn't shop as an adult woman obviously. When I lost the weight, I didn't even know where to shop, I had to ask my sister, so juniors is for kids right and the misses is where I'll find my clothes right? I mean I was so confused, I knew all the code terms for big, "woman", "plus sized" I just didn't know where to shop for my new size.

I was so excited when i turned 14, I bought a nice suit from the regular women's section. It was so exciting and now it sits in my closet... worn once. So sad.

I haven't settled at a weight long enough to really enjoy shopping yet, cause every time I buy a size I have to give it away. I am looking forward to finding my new favorite stores!

I miss Lane Bryant because I knew their jeans fit me just right... I haven't even gotten rid of my card yet, afraid of relapse I suppose.

That's amazing.

I can't wait until I can get to a size where I can borrow my sister's clothes. She's been taking all my tshirts as sleep shirts for years and making off with my shoes (same shoe size, we're both crazy tall with narrow, narrow feet), and I want some retribution. ;>

It still just feels weird. I feel like I don't belong in the ' regular ' section, although I do. My mind's eye is changing even slower than my body LOL!
