This day keeps getting better

It wasn’t all that long ago that I posted about buying new jeans.  They were size 20W.  I have been annoyed by them because I bought a 32″ inseam without realizing it so they were super long.  I am 5’6 but I have short legs I guess because I really need a 28″ inseam.  Those jeans were also getting baggy around my butt and legs which was also bugging me.  I tried on some 20s at Old Navy, which were misses and not plus, but the legs were too tight.

Tonight, we were out and I decided to look for some shorter jeans.  I tried on 20W and they were too big.  So I tried on 18W and they fit, but they were out of short length.  So I went to the misses section and grabbed 18 short from that section.  They fit!!  Yay!  Now, when I say they fit, they are tight, I won’t deny that.  But they button, zip and I can sit in them. LOL  So they aren’t TOO tight.  The 20s I’ve been wearing were just like this 2 weeks ago, so I think soon they’ll feel just fine.  They are perfect around my legs and butt too and not too long so they look great! 

I think it’s odd that I can wear an 18.  I wore an 18 when I met Eric, which was 11 years ago.  I was between 200-210 then.  So is my body different or are sizes different?  I have a pair of size 22 khakis that fit perfectly right now, but they are about 8 or 9 years old. 

My top half definitely needs to catch up with the bottom.  Mostly my boobs. LOL  There are some types of shirts I can actually wear a 1x now but mostly I’m wearing 2x-3x, depending on the cut because of the boob area.   I’m going bra shopping (again) this weekend.  I’m hoping some better fitting bras will help a little.  I just bought FOUR bras from Lane Bryant not 2 months ago and they are too big.  Ah well, better to be too big than too small!

Drumroll please… Just a quick note and a new picture

    Jaimie, that is wonderful news. I know you must be feeling so high right now. I hope those size 18 become to big also in a short time. Congrats, again. Barbara

    P.S. I will know shortly if my insurance will approve my getting the band. I had to stay on a dr. supervised weight loss program for six months and my dr’s office was sending my results into the insurance company. I just pray they don’t turn me down. I want to have the same success as you. Keep me in your thoughts.

    Isn’t shopping WONDEFUL these days? Especially jeans/pants. I’m with you on the top half being larger. But oh boy — shopping makes me swoon!
