Height: "5'2"

Default I'm a size 8!!!!

When I started on Ideal Protein in November, someone suggested that I take advantage of Black Friday and buy jeans several sizes up as motivation. I had started as a 16, and was a 14 at that point.

I bought jeans in sizes 12, 10 and 8, determined to eventually get into the 8's. Today, for the first time, I was able to pull the size 8's on, zip them up and button them with comfort. I've been wearing them EVERYWHERE today lol! I have not been in a single digit size since high school. I am amazed and thankful for the progress I've made to date, though I don't always see it on the scale, the inches are certainly coming off!!!

Congrats!!!! There really is no better feeling than fitting into a smaller size, especially in jeans. I remember the first time single digits zipped for me, only motivated me to keep going. Keep up the great work!
