OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. HUGE NSV. I have always been heavier than my mom, though I've been able to steal some of her shirts (albeit, SOME) I have never ever ever fit into her pants or jeans. Today I was looking at measurement size charts from several different stores and they kept telling me that my measurements meant I'm a size 10. Doubtful of this I went into my mom's closet to hunt down the pair of Old Navy size 10 jeans she has, which I couldn't find. I did find a pair of size 10 Boston Proper jeans, though. But I was aware of the fact that Boston Proper usually runs small. I huffed and thought "what the heck" and decided to try them on. I expected them to get stuck at my hips or my thighs but they slid right up and buttoned! There's hardly any muffin top either!!! (Granted, my stomach sticks out maybe an inch because they run a little small, but after an hour of wearing them they're less snug) I sat right down and cried after looking in the mirror. 1. I have not been a size 10 since 7th and 8th grade and 2. I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FIT INTO MY MOM'S PANTS!!!! After I was done crying I got up and danced around the house. My brother (home sick) congratulated me and my aunt and step sister did a happy dance with me. I don't even care about the number on the scale today, because for the first time in a very long time I feel very normal and I do not feel like I belong in the plus sized section!!!!

Thanks Divine! I couldn't believe it either! I didn't think I'd fit a size ten until I was down to the 160s! I know you can make it there too!

eta: skinny - I'm a huge fan of the art of sucking in lmao! Sitting down is a whole other story though... lol! Thank you!

Thanks stella!!! I bet you'll be able to fit into tens soon between the running and the spin classes you took at the old apartment!

Well I can wear one pair of jeans I have that are a size 10 - Old Navy, from my cousin, but I'm not trusting them because she wore jeans tight and may have stretched them. I'm solidly in 12's now and I'm pretty psyched about that

Platform9- that's awesome! Do you mind me asking your height? You just gave me some hope that maybe within the next 15 or so pounds I can be in the same place! I'm kinda short though! Lol!

edit: okay I just took a look and it says you're 5'2 just like me! omg! there's hope!!! lol!! what size were you when you started out?

Varsity - Yay, height buddies! Lol, I started out at an 18 (at 222lbs) and I've done lots of walking, little bit of running, and lots of cardio

Cool, cool! Do you mind if I PM you sometime? It's rare that I find someone around my age and my height who's trying to lose about the same amount of weight as me..although it says 122 for you and I'm going to see how I'm feeling at 140 because I don't think I've ever weighed less than that..

anyway that's really exciting because at 192 right now, I'm a 14...sounds like I could maybe be a size 10 in 15 or so pounds! That would be pretty awesome.

If you're a 14 at 192, I'd say it definitely sounds like you could be in some 10s in about 15lbs. I was a size 14 at 175lbs (I'm 5'4.75") and I got into 10s at around 150lbs.
