100 lb. Club - I went shopping today

View Full Version : I went shopping today

02-21-2010, 08:44 PM
I was in a crappy mood (though my weight was DOWN this morning to 203.4!!!!) and so decided to go shopping. I normally shop at thrift stores but I found NOTHING decent today. So I went to the mall...

My size 18 levi's are way too big for me. My 16's are getting a bit loose... so I decided to try on a pair of Lee's Riders in a 14 misses (these are all misses sizes and not plus) and guess what.... THEY FREAKING FIT. I can do them up and everything!!!!!! Now I've got a bit of a muffin top with it so regular wear will have to wait for another 5 pounds but SIZE 14!!!!!

So to celebrate I bought some LARGE yoga pants and a LARGE t-shirt.... notice the no X's in sight? Anywhere? ;)

happy sigh :)

What a fabulous, amazing, and wonderful feeling!!!!! Size 14 regular?????? WOW!

02-21-2010, 08:47 PM
I feel you!!!! I don't even know what to do with all my larges...I just bought the dang things right before Christmas and they are all flapping and falling off. I have never, ever, EVER been a medium before. I think I went from 6X in like 2nd grade to L overnight. It's totally surreal!!!

what a huge accomplishment!!!!!

OMWord!!! how awesome!!

Congrats! I think the first time I put on size 14's in the dressing room, I quickly took them off, hung them back up and then went out to my car and burst into tears. LOL. So you're handling this new, smaller size a lot better than I did!

02-21-2010, 10:17 PM
That's AWESOME! Congrats! :cheer:

02-21-2010, 10:29 PM

Oh Baby, time to give up the thrift store now...cuz I'll tell you, I was shopping yesterday and at Penney's and several other dept. stores they had boat loads of adorable size 14's (and smaller) on the 80% off rack. Brand new adorable clothes for LESS than some of my thrift store finds. I know for you now, you'll probably not want to start shopping for next year not knowing what tiny size you'll end up by then, but just wait!!! I have found such a thrill buying super duper classics now that I'm at goal, (only stuff that I'm pretty sure will still be in style next winter) for rock bottom prices. I used to envy my friends who would pick up great values knowing they would be able to wear them "next year".

Oh how I would love to go shopping with some of my 3fc buddies!

:carrot: Way to go Girl!!

Isn't shopping so much fun as you get smaller?

That's awesome CF! I love size 14! Haven't been tehre in years, but I love it!!

You know, I really think size 14 is one of those major milestones on the way down. (I've lived in the UK for ages, but I still automatically translate sizes into North American equivalents.) Congratulations, and as Lori Bell says, hit the clearance racks!

that is WONDERFUL news, so happy for you.

CFMama, WTG! I remember when I was able to wear 14s for the first time--an awesome feeling. Lori, I would love to go shopping with you too! Clearance racks, thrift stores, garage sales, you name it--I'm there! CFMama, beware of the shopping addiction that I have cultivated!

02-22-2010, 12:11 PM
You ladies are the greatest :) I'm so happy to share in my little joys and happiness with you :) It's so funny ... there's a core group of people that are genuinely HAPPY for me and I can always pick them out :) Thanks for caring!

02-22-2010, 12:46 PM
At a size 14, you can shop pretty much anywhere and that has to be a fantastic feeling. Congrats!!

That is such great news! Congratulations! your hard word is paying off!!!!

It does feel SOOOO GOOD! And when I was lost in wal-mart in the plus sizes... a sales woman came up and ASKED ME IF i WAS LOST and directed me to the "regular" sizes... lol! And well... I was lost so it was helpful. I only hope that she does not kick people out of the non-plus sizes! lol!

LOL. That had to feel good... "Excuse me miss, I believe you want the hot chick section."

Congrats on your new size 14s! I'm sure another few pounds and they'll fit beautifully! Exciting stuff... :)

Shopping in the regular section is one of the best things in life. Truly. Also, not feeling the need to remove the tags from your clothes so you don't have to look at them but instead smiling everytime you see a tag. Great job, lady!

02-22-2010, 06:39 PM
That is wonderful news. It always feels good to see how are bodies change as we lose weight. Congratulations!!!!

02-22-2010, 08:57 PM
ah, to be X-less! Good for you!!

02-22-2010, 09:55 PM
Congratulations! 14s! That's my **hallelujah angels singing** size. I was that size a million years ago (ok, maybe 6) when I first met my husband. I felt pretty hot back then. I'm sure you know the feeling ;)
