Thanks folks! It's so great seeing these sizes go down. I'm only 5'2", so I still have a way to go, but the smallest I ever saw was an 8 (for a week or so - haha!) and that was ONE pair of pants that was probably mis-sized! lol! The thought of getting into a 10 at this point in my life - my gosh, I'll be dumbfounded. Never thought it could happen, but now that I've made it into the 12s, could it really become a reality?

Dare I hope?

I'm closer to my goal today than I was yesterday!

I hope someday I can claim the same size! I have been a 14-16 since High school which has been 31 years!! Can't say I don't stay consistent emoticon I have a pair of size 12 button up jeans waiting patiently in my closet!

Yes, I am - easily!

Several weeks ago I bought a pair of 12 capris. I found them on clearance and figured it was just generous sizing - a hint to the next size. Today, I did a little shopping and found a pair of skorts for $10 in a size 12 - I also tried on several pairs of jeans in size 12 and they all fit! Granted, I didn't buy any jeans, didn't like how they looked - I truly think I can claim a size 12 at this point.

I used to wear a size 18 jeans. When those got too tight, I just didn't wear jeans any more. I couldn't bring myself to buy them any bigger. I can now claim a 12 and forsee that in the not too distant future this size may eventually be too big, too! I honestly can not remember how long it has been since I've worn this size. 20 years ago, maybe?

I'm closer to my goal today than I was yesterday!
