I am a size 14. I have no problem with my size, as a matter of fact if I tried on a 16 and it fit I wouldn't mind its just a number. Of course when you change sizes to smaller sizes it is nice. I went to American Eagle today to try on some jeans. I am a short girl so I try on the size there and then order them online in short length because they never have short size 14 in store.
I picked up 3 pairs of 14's and headed for the dressing room. As I slipped the first pair on I was surprised to see them button with ease. They fit good maybe even a little bit loose. Pair number 2 same story. By pair number 3 I was psyched. They all fit! I can remember when no pants fit me. When even 16's were out of the question. It is amazing to go into the dressing room and put on jeans that all fit. I was a happy girl.
When I got home I was thinking that I would hold off on ordering the jeans online. I think I am going to wait until I hit the 20lb down mark and then try them on in 12's. I can't wait to be able to wear a smaller size for one main reason. I hold most of my weight around my hips and waist so the thighs and bum of 14's are always a bit saggy. I think that the size 12's will fit the rest of my body much better.
So I will wait to order new pants until I can fit into 12's. I have plenty of 14's to hold me over.
