S/C/G: 160/131.8/110

Height: 5'3.5" Yep, the half matters!

Default Pants! I am literally crying happy tears...

So some of you may have seen the thread I posted back in December about a pair of jeans I got for Christmas that were too small. I literally could not get them up past my thighs. Size 8 from the Gap, but they have started making their sizes based on measurements again... Most people told me to exchange them, but I was a pain and decided to keep them for the sake of motivation

Well... Today, I got curious. and I put them on. And they FIT!! Perfectly! No muffin topping, no creasing. I, my friends, am a size 8! A REAL size 8! I'm so happy right now, even if only because I thought I would never get down to this size again. I still have a ways to go-- for my height, I am still overweight. But I can do it! I already did part of it! I am ecstatic.

They are very cute jeans, and I will enjoy wearing them, but I can't wait for them to be too big, either.


Random: I wish I had started taking some progress pictures, but I think I have a few that will suffice when I get to goal to show the difference. I might take some of my pants and edit this post later. :P

Well done! What a great feeling it is to fit into something that didn't fit before. Keep up the good work!

Cheers,
