So I've been wanting to do this ever since I bought some work pants for work at a steal. They were size 16 and the tag said size 18 so that will teach me. I went for a crazy 5 mile walk in the very hot sun today and mentioned that I think I may try them on and see if I could fit in them. Sandy gave me some size 16 pants as well that reminded me of those other pants I got. Well I think the hot sun may have gotten to me but I decided just for the heck of it to try them on when I got home. I did and I can't button them standing up but if I lay on the bed they zipper really easy!!! So I was totally shocked but this is the size I was back in college when I met my other half. That was over 13 years ago!!!! I'm still thinking I'm hallucinating from the sunburn but I actually can get into them easier than I thought. Its been one year and 3 months and as of today I'm 67 pounds lighter and I really am starting to look so much tinier. So my advice to everyone on here, find some great challenges to keep yourself accountable, and talk to as many great ladies on here as you can. It really does help and you will lose the weight slowly and safely on here and it will be gone forever....I promise you! Just remember where I started at 242! Thanks everyone, I love all you ladies and here's to hitting 170 by Memorial Day!!!
PS Next day I could zip them up standing up...think i just had to get used to them.
