I'm not going to say they're a perfect fit yet because they're not. I'm thinking I need to lose another 5 - 7 pounds before I wear them out and about on the town. But the great news is that I fit into them!

My goal weight is 150, but my bigger goal has been to get back into size 8s. I basically want to fit into size 8s comfortably, and then reevaluate my weight/size goals. Do I feel good at this size, or could I keep going to a 6? Do I feel like there is still toning to be done? Should I chuck the scale and focus on body fat? Those kinds of questions are going to be asked when I can comfortably wear my size 8 pants.

But until then, I'm just going to squeal about it - I CAN FIT INTO SIZE 8 PANTS AGAIN! WEEEEEEE! :D

Goodness gracious, I can't believe I left that part out! They're Gap's Long and Lean jeans! They're my favorite Gap style. :)

Thanks, everyone! I keep holding them up in front of me and thinking I cannot believe these actually fit! Even though this weight loss has been a gradual process, I still look at myself in disbelief most days.

Tuende YOU look awesome! Loving that Avatar - work it!

You look great - congrats! I just purchased a pair of capris in sz 8 last week and thought the same thing. I bought a pair of sz 8 shorts earlier this summer b/c all my other shorts were too big. That was a good feeling.

I have a pile of dress pants in sizes 10 and 12 that are too baggy now ready to go to Goodwill. I am currently holding off buying smaller dress pants until I make my goal. My (roomy) dresses and skirts will have to do until then!

Thanks and congrats yourself! I have real problems with letting go of my clothes. I have size 10 capris that I know are getting too big, but I keep wearing them because I love them so dang much. So losing weight is bittersweet in that way because I love my clothes and am sorry to see them go. But replacing them with size 8s is exciting!

Good luck reaching your goal! Buying size 8 dresses/skirts will be lots of fun for both of us! :)

Wow! Size 8 gap jeans - very cool. I was thrilled when I got into my old gap size 12's, I can't even imagine how awesome it will be to be in single digits:) Congratulations!

I agree, I've been very happy to get into my 14s again (12 was the lowest I saw before my last pregnancy) but the day I get into single digits, I'll cry out of pure joy. YOU LOOK FANTASTIC! I think they fit great and do whatever you're comfortable with--but the camera is one of the best way to tell how you look--and you look great! So happy for you!

I know what you mean. I have a few designer pieces in the larger sizes that I bought awhile ago b/c they were marked down to such a low price. Now they are too big and I'm wondering if I will be able to find such nice items for a steal in the smaller sizes!
