Last week I went to the mall while I was there I tried on some clothes. Shirt Size 14/16. Pants started with trying on 18, but yep to big had to try on a 16. Woo Hoo they fit. Did not buy the outfit was not in the budget, but it felt good to know I could have left the store with a size 14/16 and 16. When I started I was a size 22/24 shirt and 24 pants. So therefore I HAVE a reason to celebrate.
