Default Very big NSV for me!

So, my pants have been pretty much falling off my butt. I haven't really had time to go shopping but just yesterday my husband took me to the mall while he worked. He works at Sears so I figured with the lack of job maybe I could find a cheap pair of pants to get there. Well, found a pair of Levi's boot cut in a size 10 and I figured why not just try it? Size 10 was a bit small on me a few months ago, it was a dress but still, let's try pants! So, I got them on, a bit tight...couldn't really button them to well but I did get them buttoned! So I was admiring them a bit to see how tight they were and maybe some areas I need to work on and then I saw it.

A size 8 sticker on the pants. What?? No way...Size 8? What? I took those pants off as fast as I could, lol and I checked the size. IT WAS a size 8! I could uncomfortably stick myself in a size 8! So I checked out a size 10 and it fit my like a glove! I'm a size 10! Bye bye 14s! I was so excited! Especially since I've been pretty down about myself lately, with losing my job and not feeling to happy about myself...This was just the thing I needed to perk myself up.

So, hubby gave me the credit card and I ended up getting at least a cheap pair of shorts in size 10 since I didn't have any.

That's awesome! It's a great feeling. I've still got a ways to go, but I remember the feeling when I tried on a pair of jeans in a size I haven't fit into in years and they actually fit!
