I got home and decided to try on my Size 8 jeans. They fit!!! This is the first time I've ever worn a size 8. I can't even believe it. But they're the same brand as my 10's and 12's so I think it's legit and not just a difference in brands. And when I got them they were way too tight!
They're a little tight-ish now, but nowhere near as bad as I expected. I could definitely wear them in public (though sitting gives me a bit of a muffin top, so it might not be wise depending on the situation
I've never ever worn a size 8 before. At my high weight, this was the size I thought of "If I could just be a size 8 when I hit goal, that would be amazing." (Then I was in a 16.)
