Yay!!! size 22/24 running shorts!


Thursday, May 03, 2012

I have been between a size 26-32 my entire adult life.
I have not worn a size 22/24 bottoms of ANY kind since junior high (age 13).

I just tried on a pair of these (WONDERFUL) running shorts (which I highly recommend; they flatter in all the right places they have a tiny zippered pocket on the back to keep your house key or ipod shuffle): tinyurl.com/7zzck
j8


I ordered size "3" on sonzi's site, which I assumed would be about a 26/28, but it ended up being size 22/24. That's what I get for not checking their size chart.

I didn't think they would fit... but I decided to try them on before returning, just in case ....

...and OHMIGOSH! They fit! and they fit WELL! I won't say I am *officially* a size 24 until I am wearing them in jeans too, but, this is a huge step in the right direction!

SO HAPPY!!!! :D!!!! emoticon*Dance dance dance*
Time to get running~

    That is an awesome win! My mom and I have been over weight our whole lives and have often joked that we will start a company that sells women's plus size clothes but put a smaller number on them; so you can walk around saying I am a size 10 :) That number is great motivation! I am surprised to hear you were an over weight teen, most people I meet have only struggled through adulthood. I was wearing a size 18 in junior high. But would often wear 22s so they were baggy, somehow I thought baggy stuff would hide how big I actually was. Keep on trucking skinny girl!
