Size Update

I wore clown pants to work today. Seriously, they were so huge on me they were goofy looking. It's been a while since I've worn them, but I thought they were okay when I left this morning, until I got a look at myself in the bathroom mirror at work and realized they looked ridiculous.

So I trotted myself off to the mall at lunch to buy some new khaki's. The offensive pair were a size 8 from Dress Barn. I tried on a pair of Dockers at JCPenney in a size 8, and they were too big and fit funny (the waist was too high). I also tried on a pair of Levi's in a size 8, just to see what size I'd be, and they fit great (didn't buy them, though).

Next stop--J Jill. Every size 6 pair I tried on fit. I decided on a comfy stone colored pair that were on sale. And several size Small 3/4 length sleeve tops in cotton, for the fall season (if it ever gets here).

And my jeans were feeling too big this weekend, so I went down to Old Navy and tried on a pair of 8s in the Flirt style. They fit.

This is unreal. I still have 11 pounds to go until goal. I'm going to end up a size 4 at 145 pounds! It's no wonder there are size 00's now. What else would the truly skinny girls wear? And, please, I'm getting thinner but I am NOT skinny. I'm overweight on the BMI table until I hit 149 pounds.

WHOOO HOOO!!!! Shopping for clothes is always the best when you've lost weight ;D

I've noticed the same thing in regards to the sizing. "They" must have changed sizing in the past couple of years. Sizes I used to fit in are the same sizes I wear now, which is impossible considering that I've tacked on about 10-15 pounds since then LMAO! I'll be the last person to complain though hehe

Wow, that's so inspiring, Laura!

At least your pants stayed up and didn't fall down until you got new ones. Size 6! Way to go!!

This post is a good indicator of why the BMI chart needs to be re-looked at and re-designed.

Awesome! I love it whent he pants get too big!

But, sizing for women is f*d up! I wish we could buy pants like men do: waist size, inseam size. Then it would be standard in every store. In one store, I'm an 8, but in another, I'll be a 4. It confuses the hell outta my husband; heck, it confuses the hell outta me!
