Mini-Goals - Tried on a size 12 jean.....and it fit!!!!

04-09-2010, 12:55 AM
I am so darned excited I can't sit still :carrot:. While I waited for my son to get thru his guitar lesson today, I roamed around the mall. I wandered into Sears and was just looking at the women's clothing.

When I started WW on Dec 29th, 2009, I was wearing a TIGHT pant size 14/16 and TBH most of them, the ones I could breathe in anyway, were solid size 16's. Soon I noticed that the 14's fit well. A couple weeks ago, my husband commented that my pants looked loose.

Well while in Sear's I decided to be brave. I grabbed a size 12 jean and went into the dressing room.

THEY FIT!!!!!!!! Now they were the slightest bit snug, but nothing that would make me not wear them. I am sooo excited. I have been at a plateau the last three weeks. Gain .4, then lose 1lb. and repeat. Very frustrating. I was upset until I realized that although my weight loss has slowed, my body shape has shifted....AND I LOVE IT!!!!!

Congratulations! Something about getting into smaller jeans that is more of a charge than any other clothing item! I am on a similar path. I started last June when I could barely get into my 14 jeans. Now my 10's are a little loose so I'm going for a size 8 next! Maybe we should start a jean swapping site on 3FC!! Again, way to go!

Ooooo, I love the jean swapping idea!!! Especially since I have been noticing that a lot of us here are "shorter". I have a hard time paying $22/up for jeans right now because I know that I will be needing smaller ones soon. And trying to find "petite" length is hard enough, LOL!

Way to go EVERYONE!!!!

im with Cglass, for some reason moving down jeans sizes always makes me feel better than any other type of clothing, lol.

size 12 is AWESOME!!!!

Just a suggestion... I dress very fashionably and some of my clothes come from a great Goodwill store down the street. I get my already broken in and smaller size jeans from there for $4.99! Try it while you are losing.

Thanks everyone! And thanks for the suggestion about Goodwill. I do shop there and this is a wonderful idea for those of us WHO WILL NOT be in the same size for long ;)

Cglass, great idea about shopping at goodwill during our journeys. I know it would hurt to pay anything more than $20 for a pair of jeans we don't plan on wearing that long ;) & once we've met our goal....go on a MAJOR shopping spree :D

I can almost relate! I havent been on my healthy eating plan for very long but my work colleagues can see that my face is thinner and I've dropped at least 1 dress size. Is it too shallow to aim for skinny jeans??

That is so cool! Congratulations :)
