Smile Another Pant NSV

Woo hoo!!!!!! I am happy dancin' right now

The beginning of the month I won a pair of lee jeans (through their facebook page). I requested a size 14 thinking that I should be able to wear them in a few months. I just got them in the mail today...of course I immediately tore open the package to check out my brand new jeans. They're so small looking so I knew they wouldn't fit but I tried them on anyways hoping I'd be able to get them up to at least my butt. Well, the darn jeans fit!!!!!! They are not only fit to be worn in public, but are a bit loose in the waist!

I am in freakin' shock right now, they looked so small I honestly didn't think I would be able to get them over my knees. I compared them to my old jeans and the difference is incredible, I can't believe I'm that much smaller! I've been wearing mostly size 18 pants (a few 16's) and they're all baggy so I knew I was closer to a 16, I didn't imagine a 14 would actually fit!

Last Christmas I was 300+ lbs wearing 24W jeans (they were getting too tight) now I'm in a 14 and practically in onderland! I'm too happy for words. I think it's time for me to stop wearing all those 18's, lol.

WOW! How exciting! I also just started wearing size 14's. They fit me a bit snug, but I used to barely squeeze into my 18's and should have probably gotten 20's, but I was too cheap or depressed or something! Anyway, you got double the good news: they fit AND they're free! Wooohooo!

I totally did the same kind of thing the other day.

I was in New York and Company looking for new khakis for work, and I took a size 18 into the fitting room (that's what I've been wearing) and tried them on and they were loose so I got the attendant to grab a 16...I put them on and they were still loose...and she brought the 14 in and I was looking at it thinking "No way that will fit" and I almost didn't even have the guts to try them on...but when I did they fit almost perfectly...they're still a little tight, but I can wear them...I was so excited, so I know exactly how you feel. I started in a 20W, but should have been at least 22W cause those were WAY too small on me.

Congrats on the new jeans. I bet you feel great walking around in them! =D
