Dropped Sizes

Sunday, February 28, 2010

I’ve been wanting to go to Express (my fave clothing store) for awhile now to try on a smaller pair of pants. I only buy pants from Express – I swear by them. I wear the largest size at Express. That has scared me for awhile because I don’t want to not be able to buy pants from there anymore. I feel like my butt only looks good in their pants. (Yes, I’m weird.) After I started wearing Express pants, everyone thought I had lost weight. I know exactly how pants fit me at Express, so I knew trying on a smaller size would be a good measurement of my weight loss.

I kept putting off going because I was afraid they wouldn’t fit. My regular pants from there have been feeling loose though, so I finally went to Express today. My work out buddy and I went to lunch, then the mall, and then the gym. I have also avoided Express since I moved to Texas because I’ve either been broke, or I wanted to wait to lose weight before buying anything else. I went in and searched for good pants to try on. I grabbed some pinstripe “Editor” pants, long blue shorts, and a super cute military green button-up shirt.

THE SMALLER SIZE FIT!!! I did a fist pump! The shirt was a smaller size than I normally buy there as well. It was freaking awesome. I still didn’t like how the pants or shorts looked though. I fit into them easily, but didn’t like the style. The shirt looked amazing on me, but I put it back because it was $50. I’m still missing it.

Next, we went into Victoria’s Secret. My bras have felt loose lately. I tried on a fitted shirt a couple of weeks ago and I could see my bra line sticking out. I asked a girl there to measure me. I’m still the same number of inches around, but my cup size dropped from DD to D!! She found a bra for me to try on and it looked amazing. The first word I thought of was “dainty” when I looked at in the mirror. It’s white with lace. It held my breasts up more than the bra I wore today and covered them without any extra fabric sticking up. I definitely bought it. A good bra is totally worth it.

Trainer buddy wasn’t at the gym so I couldn’t tell him about dropping sizes. But I’m scheduled to train with him at 5:30 tomorrow. I put my work out buddy through the arms workout he gave me yesterday, and we did 35 minutes of cardio.

Has anyone else dropped any sizes recently?

I’m still working on the collage. I have many words cut out.

    Isn't it great dropping sizes?? I haven't dropped much in bra sizes (which is a GOOD thing, don't wanna lose the little I've got!), but jean size has gone from a tight 14 to a tight 6 so far. I have a certain kind of jeans I always buy so I do the same thing, I always try on that exact brand/style so I know the size is accurate. Congrats on the new size!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I haven't gone down any size recently, but I know the feeling well. :) 42 to 36 in bras, 16 to 8 in jeans. That is the one thing that really keeps me going--looking for that next size down. Boy oh boy do I want it! You know, you should make that shirt one of your rewards. Work for it, and save up because you know you will get there. ;)

    So, congrats on the size, and here's to more to come!
