Been working for this day for 4yrs and 5 months...
...and I thought it would *feel* or rather look different. Today I bought my first pair of size 10 jean shorts since I was 19 years old (I'm almost 31)! And although I'm thrilled, I thought that at a size 10 I would be at my goal...but I'm 10-15 maybe even 20lbs away. Part of me is actually kinda excited because this means that I will absolutly be an 8 *maybe* even a 6 by the time I hit my goal, but on the other hand I'm kinda bummed because I thought I'd be done at this point (but deep down I didn't want to stop at a 10 anyway
I'm also really weirded out because I know I weighed in the 140s the last time I was a 10...so I'm a little shocked at 159 to be fitting into them. I've heard sizes have gotten bigger, does anyone know when that happened? Have sizes gotten bigger since the last time I wore a 10? Or is my body just that different? I'm it's possible, I've been really into running these last 4-6 months so it's possible I've got some more muscle on me. I also had a baby 20 months ago so that changes your body as well and my boobs are bigger than they were when I was 19 so there is some extra weight there. I'm starting to weight train so being a size 6 in another 10-20lbs isn't that big of a stretch, the thought of that though is so far out there for me, I can't even comprehend it...I've NEVER been smaller that an 8 (although I don't remember being an 8, but husband does and his memory is way better than mine).
So actually this is really really exciting...I'm going to be smaller than I thought at my goal whohoo!!!!
I can't believe I'm FINALLY here!
