Talking Oh my Lord! A size 12!!

I just had to share this with you guys...

In the beginning of June I bought jeans and khakis in a size 16. Well, they were getting too big on me. So, on Friday, I went and bought a pair of Levi's 525 low rise jeans (in the misses department!) in a size 14!! They look HOT!

But, I needed a new pair of khaki pants. I was looking on the sales rack, in Kohl's, and the only size I could find in khakis was a 12. So, I figured why not just try them on. Well, THEY FIT!! I was practically screaming in the dressing room!! They look so good on me! I'm soooo happy!

I haven't fit into a size 12 since I was 14 years old. This is so wonderful!

I also had to do a fourth size exchange on my wedding dress. I tried it on last week (it was a size 18) and it fell right back off of me! So, I called David's Bridal, and they don't even make my dress anymore. Luckily, the woman found it at another store in a size 14. So, they put an order in for it and hopefully it will be in soon!!!

First of all, congrats on all your success. Wow, that's a lot of weight you've lost!

Second, yay happy fitting room. Don't you feel awesome wearing those pants? For me, when I'm wearing a smaller size and it fits well, it's a great boost in confidence. I hope it's the same way for you.
