Default Woohoo!!

I haven't been able to do this since about 3 and 1/2 years ago!

When I started the 9th grade (finishing out the 12th now) I wore size 15 jeans. At the end I wore size 18 jeans and in the 11th I gained to a 21. Well the 16s I had bought two weeks ago have not been sitting on my waist anymore.. too big! Tonight I decided to try on my two 15 jeans I had saved to see how much more weight I needed to lose to wear them and well.. they fit!! I'm wearing one of the 15s right now! I'm so excited!!

that's awesome...but I have a question for you. You weigh 215 and wear a size 15 jeans??? Do you mind if I ask how tall you are and if you weight train? Because at 190 I wore a size 18...Maybe myhips are just HUGE.... haha.

Thank you all for the congrats and congrats to you all for y'alls hard work!!

And lottie63-- LOL well I weighed in at 232 for loose 18s and when I was in junior high I weighed in the 190s wearing size 13 jeans (tight though, keep in mind!) I'm 5'6'' but my legs are a lot thinner than my stomach. My stomach is a BAD problem area for me. I'm very active and used to weight train and plan on doing it again.. so maybe that's why. But no matter what weight I've been my legs have always been thinner than most people my weight.

I have the same problem, Hilary. My legs are so thin compared to the rest of me. I can't wear jeans at all, as if I get them big enough to go over my stomach, they have "elephant legs" which I hate! I have that problem with most all pants but jeans look ridiculous with huge gaps over the upper legs and thighs LOL

Congrats on fitting into the smaller size!!! That HAD to feel great!

A suggestion for those of you with the thinner legs but not so thin belly...hehe. Old Navy jeans! My thighs aren't what I'd call thin, but they're not big either...and their jeans fit great belly/leg thing. I can't stand a loose pair of jeans through the thighs and seat. I get the low rise, boot cut ones and they're a great fit and my tummy sorta sits on top of em...lol. Besides, this way I'm watching my 'cupcake' shrink on top....lol.

OOOOH I forgot to mention....they also have jeans that are normal through the legs and roomier through the hips!!! I can't remember the exact lingo for them, Old Navy seems sorta Starbucks-ish to me as far as size things...but those are AWESOME jeans too!!!

Haha finally!! Someone who understands!

Kim -- that's a good suggestion. I haven't had Old Navy jeans in so long but I should get some.. I think they would flatter a lot better than others!!
