Default 22 to 16

My husband and I were running errands yesterday, we decided to look for some clearance clothes (nothing fits us right anymore). I took a leap of faith and tried on size 16 pants and they fit!

I started at size 22 and now 16's fit great! All of the hard work has paid off. I still have a long way to go, but this was a great motivator for me.

Congratulations!!! Oh how I wish I could fit in a 16.

You must be way taller or a totally different body type than me, because I'm 5'5 245.6lbs and I can't get any of this in a 16. I can get in and zip/button an 18 but with way too much muffin top. So I'm going to hang out in these 20s I just bought for a while.

Yes Meka, I'm 5'10" and VERY busty with an hour glass shape.

Thank you all for the support and encouragement. I know there is a long road ahead, but we can support each other and forge ahead in our journeys.
