Anyone else experience the same thing?
I'm the same way and its frustrating as far as clothing goes. I've lost almost 35 lbs and I've only gone from a 20/18 to a 16. Clothing sizes vary so much that some 16s are tight. I'm not losing in my belly as quickly as I thought I would. But as frustrating as it is, there's nothing to do but keep doing what I'm doing and hope that I'll eventually see the smaller sizes. What Ntombi says makes a lot of sense.
