I have been looking for a new pair of jeans for a couple of weeks now. Last week I was very disappointed that I was unable to fit into a size 18 by just a wee bit and I refused to buy size 20 (my former jeans were a 22). Well today DD and I traveled to Ann Arbor and I actually fit into a size 18 while in Macy's. Size 18. DD was waiting outside the dressing rooms for me but I was so excited when I zipped them up that I ran out to show them off to her. She was pretty impressed and I had to text my DH right then too. I bought them and I feel really, really good. I went down 2 pants sizes since September. 2 sizes. Now I know that it probably won't happen like that again but that's what I'm shooting for by Christmas. Two more sizes and I will be able to buy stuff in the regular clothing area. Not the 'Womans' but the regular stuff (why regular only goes to size 14 is a good subject for a future blog). So I have my new jeans now and DD have volunteered to drop off the old, big pair at Goodwill next week so I never wear them again. I love my family.
