Default Dropped two jeans sizes!!!

Hay all,

Saturday I got tried of pulling up my jeans (size 24) I could even take them off without unzipping or unbuttoning them and went shopping. I hate shopping. Went to Wal-Mart and they no longer carry the brand of jeans I wear and did not have anything over a size 16 . Went to another store. They didn't carry the brand of jeans I was wearing so had to try different brand . This means I didn't know where to start, I took size 22 into dressing room and they were still loose. Went back and got the size 20. Yeah they fit .
Now I know that it may have been the different way they cut them but I'll take it.

That's GREAT! What a super problem to have! If you are looking for jeans, you might try a consignment store. Sometimes they have plus size jeans inexpensively. Congrats!

I go to Goodwill and Salvation Army at least one a week. I work with disabled people and they like to go there a lot. We don't have any other consignment stores in this town. The problem with Goodwill and Salvation Army is they just lump everything together on the racks and it takes forever to find anything.

Don't you dare try to minimize such a GREAT DAY by saying that the jeans are cut differently! You're wearing a size 20, girl-- down from a 24! Amazing!!!!!!

That is wonderful. Since your jeans were so loose, I am sure that your new jeans are a true two sizes smaller. Way to go!!

Congratulations!

That day seems far, far away to me.

Irishrose was right to scold you for minimizing your accomplishment with that comment, but I know what you mean though. When does this become real? When do you actually believe its happened as much as it seems to have happened?

BTW--Buying jeans two sizes smaller--good evidence it's happening! Woot!
