It's been 9 months since my diagnosis of diabetes and a lot of changes have taken place in my life. I am now a person who pretty consistantly eats correctly and who exercises. My body has gone from a size 22 to a size 14 but my mind hasn't quite made the leap.
Today, I was shopping at Jones New York, one of my favourite shops for splurging in. I was happily digging through the sales racks when the saleswoman came up to ask if I was searching for a gift for someone. I smiled and said I was looking for some cruise wear for myself and she shook her head and explained that I was in the wrong section. She very patiently showed me out of the "woman's" section. Jones does not have a generous fit but I found it very easy to fit into their size 16 fitted dress that will be perfect for dinner on the ship. My pant size is a 14 but I need a tiny bit more room up top because of my hernia.
In my mind, the 1x's looked to be more my size and when I looked at the 14 & 16's, they looked like they'd never fit but everything I tried fit perfectly. I'll probably start believing I'm a 14 when I'm a 10 lol
