I'm smaller than I thought!

I've lost over 75 lbs and believe it or not, I haven't bought any new pants since I started other than two pairs of yoga pants that I bought on clearance for $5 each. They were tight then and I was able to make them work until now when I just had to admit defeat and break down and buy something new today I decided to look for capris. Went to a Nygard shop I'd been interested in and found two pairs I liked but had no idea what size I now am so I took a guess and grabbed size 14 to try on. I was a 24 before I started back to lc. To my amazement, they were too big! So were the 12s! I actually did a little dance in the fitting room when the 10 petites fit perfectly!!!!! I'm still happy dancing in my head

Every time I read the title I think, "I KNOW a man didn't post that thread!"

Sorry, my weird sense of humor....

It's great being a guy surrounded by beautigul gals! Hey congrats on your need for a new wardrobe! I am down 50 pounds today. I started in February 2016 at 300 and weighed in today May 26, 2016 at 250.6... I know the excitement of now having to wear the belt or unintentionally goint pantless! Hard to walk with t hem falling down all the time!
