So, I posted a lil while about getting into my size 18 jeans. Down from a 22. Well, today after my size 22 capris fell off for the umpteenth time I went to try on shorts. Found a pair of size 16's that fit. I am so happy. They are a little tight(I can button them but, if I ate a big meal would feel squashed..lol) but hoping in a couple weeks they will be really comfortable. And I tried on a pair of L shorts and they fit. Used to wear XL.

I am so happy. Have not been in a 16 since high school!:carrot:

It is so funny because the scale has slowed so much...but, obviously something is moving.

Way to go! There's nothing like fitting into a new, smaller size!

Great! Hopefully you'll be wearing them shortly (pun intended). :dance:

That's awesome. I just got into 16s myself, and it feels shockingly good!

I see your ticker mentions Disney as your goal. That's the same reason I started - we're going in July. It's a fantastic motivator!

I just got into 16Ws; right now I'm hoping the next few pounds will get me into 16 in misses. I WILL have me a pair of levi's!!!

But doesn't it feel great to be in a 16? My new LB shorts are a 16 and they are the cutest and most comfy shorts ever. I am happy! You should be too!

We went last July and the October before. And I know I could fit on the rides as the fat me...but, I want to be able to not feel bad about where the bar goes when I put it down. I don't want the bar way up on my girls because mom is huge.:(

Congrats! dropping a size is brilliant, and always feels amazing when you're out shopping for new clothes and get to pick out that new size. I find the style range varies considerably the smaller the sizes, which is great.


The only downside is having to buy a ton of new clothes that actually fit! :p (although if you can afford it, it's not really a downside, haha.)

I wish I had the money. Have decided that a majority of my clothes now should be second hand. The store here sells new stuff as second hand for about $5 each. Since I don't plan on stayin in them I don't want to spend a lot on something I am going to give away. I have already found a better selection in the 16's than the 22's I used to wear...can't wait to get to below a 10.

Oh absolutely, me too. Not least because, as I'm sure you find too, they're more flattering and you don't mind wearing something 'pretty' because shock they actually look nice now you're slender :P

Just last week I found a great deal on jeans on Amazon (6 per pair!) and put 4 different colours and designs into my basket to buy after "money day" haha. They were taken down the day before I got to buy them :(

They were 10s, and I'm between a 12 and a 10 at the moment. The only comfy pair of jeans I have are one pair of 12s.

Second hand is actually a great idea. I wish we had more places like that in my local area; unfortunately [fortunately?] we had a brand new shopping centre built up not too long ago and now everything is completely new. And expensive!
