Talking Officially shopped for "NORMAL" sized clothes!

I got some gift cards for Christmas, and I went shopping at Old Navy.

I got to buy NON plus size clothes. Yes, ME! Normal size clothing. The options were endless (I only wish I had more gift cards, LOL) I cannot remember the last time I could do that. Even when I went shopping last time, I went specifically into a plus size clothing place. But not now. NOT EVER AGAIN!!!

Granted, I'm in a size 18 - so technically that's the biggest non plus size that they have, BUT STILL... I almost starting crying in the middle of the store

Thanks.

Well, I lost all my weight thus far doing lower carb (about 75-80 carbs a day) and calorie counting (approx. 1400 calories per day.) It took me about 2 years to lose 100 pounds. Then, about 5 months ago I hit a plateau with my weight loss and the scale hasn't budged in either direction since. I have about 50 pounds left to lose until my UGW, and just began Weight Watchers in hopes it'll break my plateau and get me to my goal.

It's weird, isn't it? I still find myself in the plus size/"womens world" section, even though I'm a 12/14 now, top and bottom. Congrats, girlie!
