A size 14?? Are you Serious???


Thursday, October 21, 2010

I've been losing weight...it's not a secret. When I went from my longstanding size 18 to a 16 in dress pants I was estatic. However I have been really discontented with how large my jeans have been on me. So last night I decided to break down and buy new jeans. I currently need a belt to hold my old ones up which are when I say "old" they are truly "old". I tried on the 16 but asked the gals at the store and they said they were bunching (ladies....you know where the bunching occurs)she said yes..they do have some spandex in them and will stretch a bit. I begrudgingly told the gal to get me a 14 (really REALLY highly doubtful they would fit) I tried on the first pair and they fit...snug like I guess they are supposed to fit. I was SHOCKED...I MEAN SHOCKED...did I say I was SHOCKED??? I have NEVER EVER worn a 14 in my adult life. I tried on the next pair..they fit..tried on the 3rd pair and didn't like them at all. Pulled out another pair size 14 petite (I'm short) and they fit. I walked out with 3 pairs of size 14 jeans and paid less than $75 for all 3. I'm still shocked...I may need to go home after work and try them on ...AGAIN and again..and again.....

    emoticon that is such a great feeling isn't it? I found going to Goodwill to get jeans was really helpful as I was dropping sizes and didn't want to spend full $ every month.

Keep it up! emoticon

    Kudos! Always a good thing to be pleasantly surprised when trying on clothes...I'm holding off on buying any new clothes until I drop to a 10 and can't wait for that feeling to put them and have them fit. :)

    That's great! I haven't been a 14 in a long time. I'd love to be there again. I'd try them on numerous times also. emoticon

    I am so happy for you. Reading your uplifting adventure gives hope to all. I want to get down to a 14 - I would be very happy at that size. I am in a 16 now, but a 14 would feel so much better...
