Down a Size!!!

I never did get around to talking about my great accomplishment during Black Friday shopping! Last week, I went Black Friday shopping with my Mom and I ended up shopping for clothes. I needed new clothes as all mine are 12s and too loose and annoying the heck out of me. Well, they had good deals on suits so I tried on a suit jacket (size 10) and a skirt (size 10). The skirt was TOO LOOSE! I had to have my Mom go back and find me a size 8 and guess what -- it fit! Granted everything else I bought that day was a size 10 including my jeans (and those are a little tight!). Just goes to show you how clothes run differently and also depends on the material. Jeans aren't as forgiving as say rayon. But I am definitely down a size to 10s and even a few 8s!!! Wahoo!!!!

way to go!!! I think you and I are right about the same range..I'm just starting to buy a few size 8's here and there and it's a wonderful feeling to be in the single digits :) Congratulations!!

That is terrific! Even though you are still in some size 10s, you are now a size 8! WOOT!

Congrats!
Going from a 12 to a 10 is awesome! The 8 has to feel extra good though. :)
