Default Best Shopping Trip Ever!!

Okay, today I decided to go buy a pair of jeans a little too small as montivation to lose another 10 pounds. So I go pick out 3 pairs of jeans that I REALLY love. (knowing they wont fit) I went to try them on to decide which one pair was within 10 ish pounds of fitting me. As I take off my size 24's (that Ive been wearing a belt with) I begin to panic. Maybe picking out size 20 pants was a little too wishful. I slide on the first pair...and they FIT!! Like, I could go jogging in them FIT!! Not to get too excited, I tried on the next pair. Thinking a different brand, style, would have different results. THEY ALL 3 FIT!!! I went out to pick out some size 18 Jeans, and to my INSANE SURPRISE I could button them up as well. (not jogging in them for sure) But they fit over my hips and I could button them without fear of a projectile button taking out the sales clerk. SOOO EXCITED!!! The pair of jeans I picked out to get me motivated are a size 16. I cant believe I am doing so well!! Today, I bought a pair of jeans that dont fit (yet) and it was the best shopping trip EVER!!

Great post, I'm super happy for you! It can be hard to see weight loss in ourselves, but the smaller sizes prove it's happening! I hope you're in the new 16's in no time!

Congrats! I just had a similar shopping trip! Tried on blue 22's and the lady was like, "you're a red 20" and she was right! I love having pants that fit. augh. so much.

When you wear clothes that are too big, I dunno, it makes me feel super huger than I already am. ha.

Again congrats! You'll be in the others in no time.
