Default NSV, pants. The best kind there is.

Yeah so I went to Walmart yesterday and I wanted to try on some pants because well...everyone needs pants! So I got a size 20 because in my head I was like well these 22s are starting to get a little bit looser so I went in there and I look at them and I was like... "Well...they look a little small" but they actually went up my legs just fine. When I went to button them up it took some effort and I had a major muffin top and what not but they were zipped up. I mean they for sure not pants you could wear out and about but I was just happy I could zip them up. I looked at the tag, slightly disappointed that I couldn't wear a size 20 until I realized...it was only a size 18. I mean that's how the pants I'm currently wearing fit just a month or so ago so...that's kind of cool.

Yeah, that rocks!!! Great going, isn't it awesome how fast the pant size can change? I went from snug 20s in the fall, to 18s, and now a comfortable 16. Gave up buying new pants. Better off buying second hand for now I think!

I am so happy for you! I am still at that annoying stage where my once baggiest pants are now hard to button... which is the reason I've started here today!

woopwoop! Welcome! Thanks everyone it was a pretty big moment for me. I think I'll ride out the 20's in the 22's until I can get down to the 18's.

You are doing great!
That's what I was going to suggest - if you possibly can, skip size 20 and get the 18. It looks like you will be wearing it very shortly!
