So....

A couple of days ago, I went out to Coldwater Creek and bought myself a pair of size 20 jeans.

They're really nice, stretchy, and have a tummy control component.

They were so tight that I had a little trouble zipping them, but once on, they were stretchable and I noticed that it was really flattering what the jeans did for my legs and butt, which are slimmer than my big fat tummy.

I decided to buy them, thinking that they would be pants for the future.

But a couple days later, I put them on, and being that they're stretchy, I realized that they looked okay with a loose shirt over them.

But then, wearing that outfit, I got TONS of compliments!! Everybody commented on how great I looked, and I thought the clothes were borderline tight....

It just goes to show that wearing baggy clothes doesn't always make you look thinner.

And I felt pretty amazing to be wearing a size 20 at all. :D

Work those jeans!! Wooo-whooo!! At this point I'd just be excited of my current jeans (size 22, some 24's) didn't cause the "jelly roll!"

Good for you! It's true, I always feel frumpy when I wear baggy clothes.

BAGGY CLOTHES MAKE YOU LOOK BIGGER THAN YOU ARE. THEY DON'T HIDE ANYTHING.

FITTED CLOTHES MAKE YOU LOOK YOUR ACTUAL SIZE OR SMALLER.

In my head, I think I ought to be wearing 18/20s and 1X/2Xs. That's what I wore the last time I was this size. Instead, I make myself wear 16/18s and XLs. And you know what? Everyone keeps telling me I look tiny. Tiny! Me?!

Woo for the 20s!!!!! You go girl!!

That is all. :)

Isn't that a wonderful feeling, the smaller size....a few weeks later those same jeans feel looser....and then the compliments start...something like "I didn't even recognize you standing over there." or something like that....Keep up the great work....:hug:

This is so wonderful. There is nothing like a pair of well-fitting jeans to really perk up a girl's spirits. Why, oh why, do we try to hide in loose, baggy tents and saggy pants? Why do we think that makes us look better?

You go rock those size 20's, girl--I bet they look awesome!

:congrat: Nothing like clothes that FIT to make you look and feel fantastic.

I only started receiving comments about my weigh loss when I bought smaller clothes that actually fit me.

We have a Coldwater Creek Outlet a couple hours south of us. I love being able to try things on!!!!
