Progress Pics and an OMG
Friday, November 12, 2010
We just got back from a trip to the comic book/game store down the street and popping into Walmart for a few treats for the evening (I'm going to do the regular grocery run tomorrow). While at Wally World, my mate wandered off to poke around the electronics section while I took a minute to try on pants ('cause he's a boy and I'm a good girlfriend like that). I knew 24 would be too big, but had no idea about anything else. So I grabbed a pair of 22s, a pair of 20s and a pair of 18s - all jeans (and specifically not the "stretch" kind).
I decided to try the size 20 first.
Then I tried on the size 18.
I could zip them up! They were a bit tight, but OMG I could zip them up!
Tried on another size 20...another perfect fit!
SO, I am solidly fitting into a size 20 right now. I didn't actually buy anything (I want to look at the budget and make a plan first), but still! WOW! I think that size 18 by the handfasting to fit into that dress is not only possible, I may be ready for a size smaller by then even.
So since a friend on facebook was curious and asked for progress pics, I took one of my first pics on here from June (about to head out for exercise, almost exactly 5 months ago), and put it next to the first photo above.
Wow, yeah, even *I* can see the difference!
I think I'm actually proud of me!
