it is! i was really worried it wouldnt fit. its the same size as my prom dress (size 14) from h.s. and although i fit into the dress i cant zip it all the way cuz my bust is bigger then it was in h.s. with the new dress i bought it from torrid since i know their dresses tend to accommodate bigger busts and it just fit me perfectly woohoo. i even bought a dress in a size 12 to motivate me to lose even more weight so i can wear it for the holidays lol.

Awesome work!! It is exciting to fit into new clothes!! I LOVE to do the same thing, buy clothes a size small or a bit too tight and then work to fit into them! It is such a great motivator!! Keep up the awesome work!!

i was going to but im horrible at posing for pics lol it's just not my thing. though i am still excited. i went to my job where they were having clearance sales on some of our clothing. bought a couple of pair of jeans for like 10$. i was so shocked i bought a size 12 in jeans and they fit...a bit tight but they still buttoned lol thats all that matters to me cuz i always say i'll know when to change pants when my skinny jeans aren't skinny anymore which is what i had to do. i even bought a couple of size 10s now im working towards that =] i think you're right getting smaller sizes does make a great motivator cuz you just want to be able to fit into them.
