I lost a pant size!!!!!!

Sunday, September 11, 2011

I decided to try on a pair of 22 slacks that I haven't been able to button up for about 2 years. They fit me nicely! They aren't too tight, they are comfortable! So I've gone from a 24 to a 22 in pants =) Also the 1x top that I am wearing is comfortable. The buttons don't look stressed out across my chest and the sleeves don't feel like they are going to rip apart at the seams.

Oh it's a happy day! I have breathing room in my clothes!

It's so much nicer to put clothes on that fit and are comfortable and loose rather than trying to squeeze into clothes I've out grown for a change =)

Soon my lovely 16 and 14 jeans, I will grace you with my presence!

    Now do you count that as one pants size or two? Cause, I think it should be two. (Not that you could buy a size 23 or 25, but still!

Way to go! It is a nice feeling.

    Pooks, it's that avocado shape I'm thinking. I always weigh more than people think I weigh, and wear larger sized clothing than most people at my weight. But I'm very proportional and am totally okay with that. I really can hardly wait to get back into my 14s and 16s. I've probably got another 20-30 lbs. to go before I can do the 16s and I know I need to be around 180 for the 14s. Some day I may even see a 10 or 12 again like I did before my son was born. It seems I can wear skirts & dresses smaller than pants or jeans. Got big legs =) I think it was from years of playing catcher for fast pitch softball heh. Happy I am starting to see some muscle tone in my legs. I've always rather liked my shapely and strong legs. Yea, I used to be quite vain :P

    That is so wonderful! And can I tell you something? I'm glad to meet someone else who seems to be shaped the same way I am! I hear of all these people fitting easily into size 18 and 16 at 230-240 lbs and I'm wondering how the heck that's possible!! I was fitting into 22s comfortably around that time, and here around 200 I'm finally starting to fit into an occasional 16 depending on the brand. :D So I'm glad I'm not alone!!

You look great!

  Congrats! You look fantastic! I have been doing the same thing. Trying on smaller clothes that I couldn't get into before. It feels so good to slip them on with ease, and with room to spare! emoticon emoticon
