Seriously JUDDD is nothing short of a miracle!!!

So, the husband gives me money for clothes since none of my jeans (except for 1 pair) fit, I am swimming in all my 14's. So on a whim I stop by Old Navy, I never shop there but thought it was time to check them out. I grabbed some size 12 "skinny jeans" (I hate the bootcut look on me since I'm so short), tried them on and they were too big!! Now I don't know if the do "vanity sizing" at Old Navy but fitting perfectly into a size 10 sure did make my day!!

I freaking Adore JUDDD!!!

Adding my applause here! Woo Hoo!

It's hard to explain to some folks how effective this way of eating can be for weight loss at the same time it is changing your body's actual response to food! And that it can be so effective while we get to eat whatever foods we want is amazing. And that it can slim us down into size 10 skinny jeans and have us looking fabulous is truly exciting! Yay for you!

That's awesome.

I actually went to the thrift store yesterday because I dont want to spend a lot of money in between sizes. I bought two pair one size smaller thinking that they will be a bit tight still at 1st. Nope fit perfectly, Im wearing a pair today a bit loose in the waist.

I went to Savers (big thrift store) before Old Navy and got two pairs of shorts, one size 9/10 one size 11/12 they are in the wash right now so I have to wait to try them on. I agree, I hate spending a lot of money on something I might only be able to wear for a month, I sure love shrinking though!!!

Just tried them on, both fit! One pair was a pair from Old Navy...Ironic as I didn't even check the tags when I bought them. I Think I'm starting to love Old Navy!

Yay! Being able to fit in sizes you never thought you would is so wonderful.

The downside for me is, I thought I was in maintenance so "safe" to buy more. Most of what I bought in April is a bit big on me, even though my weight hasn't change.

Glad it all came from thrift stores, lol.

The smallest size I have gotten to in recent history was a size 14 jeans at Old Navy and I REFUSE to believe that this is vanity sizing! From wearing a size 26 to a 14? I almost cried!

Of course at this moment in time, I can't fit in them but I will wear them again. That's a fact, Jack!

Wow, I haven't fit into a 14 since DH and I were dating! I remember I was so sad I had to buy a bigger size dress for my 10 year class reunion in 2000. Of course NOW I look at the pictures from that night and think how great I looked in that size 14.

You will wear those Old Navy jeans again!

Dawn - I bet you looked in that dress! When have you last gone shopping? I fit into those 14s when I was just under 200 and I'm only 5'3". You might just check out Old Navy and surprise yourself!

I'm wearing size 18 slacks I got about a month ago. They still fit at the waist but are baggy everywhere else (though they fit fine right out of the dryer). I was just at Old Navy on Sunday, but we were shopping for my daughter, and I didn't even think to try anything on for myself. I'm thinking I could probably squeeze into some size 16 jeans, but would have one heck of a muffin top to contend with!

I got some 1X workout pants and shirts weekend before last, and they fit great, but I don't know what that translates to.

ETA: This just made me think of my rubber band trick. I just posted a thread about it. Now I'm going to have to go try on smaller jeans!

Awesome! WTG!!! Woo-Hooo!!!

In August when I started my WL journey, I was wearing Macy's Style & Co. size 18 jeans (they were soooo tight! but I refused to grow any bigger or buy any bigger!)

Every time since and including then that my jeans get so loose they fall off, I go back to Macy's and buy the same brand, same style. Smaller size. That way I KNOW I'm getting smaller because I'm not comparing one brand to another.

Unfortunately the last time I went, I found out they discontinued the particular style I had been wearing, but still have many choices in the Style and Co. brand. I walked into the store wearing a loose size 12. Walked out wearing a comfy size 10! I didn't take them off. Just had the sales rep scan my butt with the tag on!!!
