Yesterday I saw THE EX at the mall and while he had the girls I decided to try on a pair of jeans to see how many sizes I have lost. Well, the largest size I ever wore in non-maternity jeans at 325lbs was a size 32 jean cleverly disguised as a size 8 because the brand name used weird measurements to size their jeans. In any case, it was a size 32. I am now in a size 24. That is 4 pant sizes down. Totally HUGE NSV right there!!! I haven't been in size 24 jeans in a looong time. In fact I remember sadly throwing all my size 24-26 jeans away after my first miscarriage when I thought I was doomed never to be a mother and to forever be a big fat mess of a girl. I really wish I hadn't thrown them away, but what is done is done.
And we move on . . . right???
My gramma was so proud at how many sizes I had dropped that she took me on a mini shopping spree last night. I got 2 pairs of size 24 jeans, 3 size 2x shirts (no more 3x&4x's!!) and a cute little cinched jacket for shirts that show my arms. I DO NOT LIKE TO SHOW MY ARMS. Yet.
So, here is a photo of me in my super baggy shabby well worn and seriously frumpy size 28 jeans and another in my new dark denim size 24's!!
