Talking I went shopping today...

So I realized that I needed some fall clothes, as most of my current size 20's were becoming very baggy. I went to Sears, because they were having some big sale, and don't you know I try on a size 16 and it fits perfectly, a tiny bit too baggy in the thighs but I can deal with it! Then as I'm walking out to pay I notice a pair of 14's on for $16, I can't pass up that kind of deal.... I try on the 14's....AND THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe a smidge too tight in the waist, but it wouldn't stop me from wearing them. So I ended up buying the both pairs, 16 and 14. I can't believe I can get into a size 14! I really can't. A year ago I was a size 24. I also bought a really cute pair of heels, and a sexy sweater/coat thing in a size XL. Ahh I love fall
Just thought I would share!

You have done such an amazing job! When I finally got into the size I thought I would never be, I ended up buying three of the same pair of jeans! I bet your friends and family are so proud of you.

Congrats! I can't wait til I get there, my 16's are starting to fit me loosely (but it was great to get back into them from the 18's!). Sounds like you'll be one sexy vixen this fall!!!
