Size 16's...Almost!

I was shopping yesterday and on a whim decided to take a pair of size 16 jeans in the dressing room. I actually got them zipped! I'm not ready to buy 16's yet, as they are still pretty tight, but wow, I was absolutely shocked that I could actually pour myself into them. So here's a rather fuzzy picture from my cell phone. The are tight enough to give me a muffin top, so I am not ready to jump in to them just yet. But wow! 16 sounds like such an average, normal number. I still look at pants and expect them to be a certain width around the waistband and when I picked up the 16's I thought there's no way these actually fit me. I still have a warped view of my body size. It will certainly take me a while to figure that out.

In some other not so good news, the scale and I are having quite a battle. I don't know what has triggered it, but the scale is sitting at 220 this morning, that's a 4 pound swing since the first of the month. At this rate I may have a gain instead of a loss for the month. That's scary. I don't know what I need to do, but I have to do something to nip this in the bud.


  1. Yay-- I'm at about the same place- I can squeeze in a 16, but I would never wear it. Go us! My dress pants are almost all too big right now but I'm waiting until I hit a 16 before buying any. Until then, I just have a super saggy butt at work :)

  2. Way to go, you'll be comfy in them in no time!

  3. That is fantastic! Each new smaller size feels better and better!

  4. You are doing great!!

    The stall might mean you are either resettling (body changes without weight) or it is time for a fill :)

    sizes: I still randomly pick up clothing sizes-and I still wander through the plus sizes looking.


  5. I am in the SAME boat. I will pick up a pair of pants thinking "there is no way" and then they zip up. It's sort of amazing. Our minds take a long time to catch up with our bodies.
