Default No "2" on the front of my pants size!!!

Wooohoooo a few months ago I found some nice pants on sale and got carried away, buying several pairs in each of three sizes... 22, 20 and 18. In December I gave away the size 22s... and now I am into the 18s -- the 20s did not get much wear!! Now ready to give those away too. But recently I also bought a different style in both a 16 and a 14.. and I can wear the 16s!! So in the past month I have gone from being an 18-20 to a 16-18. Goodbye "2" on the front of the size tag!!!

Okay, so I spent more than I should have on all those pants, ha (but I am extremely hard to fit because of my ultra skinny legs and thighs and huge stomach) but I am NOT going to complain because my pants are too big! I will just bless someone else with them (and have a couple of friends I am sharing them with).

Hello Roo... thank you for your kind words.

As for the surgery, it is not yet scheduled. I will see the surgeon mid-month to see if he thinks it is time to go for it. Then we still have to submit it to insurance. I still don't really believe it is this close LOL.

What brand of pants are you buying? I have the same shape, and I'm afraid that once I can't shop at Lane Bryant (yellow), I'm not going to find anything.

Big congratulations!! That must feel awesome

I've bought clothes on eBay that were listed as "selling due to weight loss" and it's a goal of mine to do that too someday, lol
