100 lb. Club - Amazing but True

View Full Version : Amazing but True

For the first time at any time since I got pregnant with my first child in 1990...

I went into a fitting room, took a pair of normal 16s... NOT PLUS, NOT WOMANS... just 16s... and...

Drum roll please....

ZIPPED THEM UP!!!!!!!!!!!! :carrot::carrot::carrot::carrot:

OK, they were too tight, and I had a tummy roll over the top...

But let's face it-- they were not that tight. No tighter than 18s that I bought even though I could barely zip them which are now loose.

I pulled on a XL top with them. Not plus 1, 2, or 3.

I know this sounds crazy, but I honestly never believed that I would fit into normal sized clothes again.

I realize now I'm going to be out of plus sizes entirely, and probably in just about fifteen more pounds.

Thanks 3FC!!! I never would have gotten this far without you guys!

Congratulations! How wonderful! Doesn't it just feel great?? I just bought my first regular size 16 pants too. I am still wearing plus size tops, thanks to my big arms, but I will get there too.

Gotta love clothing nsv's! I just came out of Women's sizes too. I'm in an 18 and yes, with a tummy roll, but they aren't tight in the butt or legs! So, can't wait for the tummy roll to get smaller!

Bon travail! That is awesome!

Good for you, I can't wait to be down just one size, let alone in a 16.

That feeling is THE BEST! Heck, just fitting into a pair of 16's from Lane Bryant was a victory for me - as they were tight even before my first baby, and yet they fit the same now, but my hips are much wider.

I think I may die of happiness when I fit into XL tops, right now 14/16's fit me but I thought that still corresponded to 1X.

Either way, keep those losses rolling, I just love watching all of us shrink!

Thanks guys!!

I mean, the 16s don't fit yet, but now I can tell that they will!!

When they fit up, it will be amazing.

Heck...I can wait for a 3X! I only hope I don't go into debt buying up all the 3X's in the world...LOL

Congrats on your size 16 adventure!
