I had my mom hem two pairs of dress pants for me. They are size 24. I got them two or three weeks ago. I got them back last night (since my mom was hemming them). They are too big. They don't look horrible, but they are certainly too big. I can make them work for probably another four to six weeks.
I tried on the next size down and....
I can wear a size 22!!!
I still wear a size 24 in blue jeans. I am on cloud nine over the 22! I have not been a 22 since my freshman year of college. (That was short lived too, because it was because I was taking phen-phen. Before that, I was a 22 in the 8th grade.)
I was rereading through my blog and on August 7th I was working towards getting into a size 26, and now, two months later, I am at a 22!
I am almost out of sizes that begin with a "2". This is so thrilling! Maybe I'll be in an 18 sometime in January!
