I had to come here and share my most recent success.

Today was "C" day. The day I go through the closet and see what fits and what doesn't. What prompted it today was this...

On work days I generally don't change into jeans when I get home. I'm usually late enough that I fix some dinner, take a shower and get into something comfortable... usually my robe. ;)

Last weekend I was wearing a size 16 and it was comfortable. Not really loose but not snug either. Today I got up grabbed a pair of Size 16 jeans that I've not worn in a while and put them on. To my UTTER SHOCK AND SURPRISE, they were so loose that I could pull them down without unbuttoning them. :eek:

So, this prompted me to start looking for what DID fit. I'm Thrilled to say that what now fits is anything size 12 to size 14. I have pulled work clothes out of the closet that I haven't worn in well over a year, and they FIT! :cb: :woo: I've found a whole new wardrobe in my closet. :cheer:

SO, the Size 16s are outta Here. They are GONE, never, ever, ever to return!

I had to come and share with you guys because you've been such an inspiration to me, and so much help in my down times!

:hug: To you ALL.

Now I only have 36 more to go!

It's the little things that keep us going. Some days are harder than others then something great happens (like smaller clothes!!) and we find the will to go on.

Its a great feeling. Spent a bit of time this weekend getting things ready for the work week, and boy is it nice to have double the number of suits for work in that closet!!!!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement, and I KNOW you'll all be there with me soon.
