I have resisted buying new pants because 1) fitting rooms cause panic attacks 2) I did not want to try any on and find out I was still a size 16 3) I really hope to lose more weight.
I broke down and tried on some jeans today. I tried on 6 pairs of size 14s and they all fit! In fact some were biggish! I found a pair of size 12 Liz Claiborn jeans and thought what the heck. It might work!
Miracle of miracles they pulled up around my thighs, then they made it up past my hips, then they came to my waist and they zipped! I had on a size 12! Not since before my daughter was born (she is 16!) have I had on a 12! They were tight but I could zip them and I could sit!
All those times I left fitting rooms crying because clothes did not fit seemed to melt away.
I was so happy and I needed to share this with the people who have become my support team. I did not buy the jeans. I figured I could hold out for a couple weeks. But I am ready.
