Since I started this weight loss journey in October of 2011 I've dropped 5 sizes. I've gone from a 24 to a 16!
When i started this journey I went out and bought a size 22 pair of shorts. Then once I fit into those I went out and bought a size 20 and so on and so forth. I used this as a visual motivational tool.
Well, in doing some online browsing last night I realized that Wal-Mart (where I get majority of my clothes) 14s are considered a JUNIOR SIZE!! WOOHOO!! I haven't been in a 14 since 2005 before I got married to my late husband.
So, I started browsing and realized I didn't like anything Wal-Mart had. Lane Bryant's smallest size is 14 but I'm not paying 45 dollars for ONE pair of shorts. pffft! I don't like Avenue because they cut their clothes smaller. By their standards I would be in an 18, not a 14. They cut their stuff really small.
So, I finally started looking on Target. I liked a lot of what I saw. One of my other friends suggested Old Navy. I did a little browsing on their website and they actually have some cute stuff. I'd have to find a store and try some stuff on because I've never bought clothes from their before. I don't know what would fit me properly. Once I figure that out I could start shopping online through them.
I'm excited! I'm hoping by the end of the summer (around Labor Day) I'm in 14s!!
