A size 14?? Are you Serious???

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I've been losing'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 ( 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...
