NSV...goodbye 14's...and good luck!

I just took the last pair of 14's out of my closet. Wore them today and had my belt in the last hole and still couldn't keep them up. I thought they weren't bad....but hubby told me to get rid of them...they looked horrible! Bless his heart...he tells me the truth! So...goodbye to the last of my 14's! I even had to get rid of a size 12 because they were too big!! AND I bought a new pair of cords today...size 10 for $4.40!!! I love clearance racks!!

    That's aweseome! I have a couple pairs of cords from J. Crew that I got on sale back in late Winter. They are size 8s and I can't even zip them up! My goal is to get them on comfortably...then I will be at goal! So maybe 15 lbs or so...155 should get them on smoothly without getting those horizontal creases in the back of my thighs from being too tight. :\

    awesome!!! congrats!!! :) isn't that the best feeling? (well, not your pants being still too big even with your belt as tight as it can go... lol)

    I just bought a size 14 pair of jeans like 2 months ago and back near the end of August they were big enough for me to take off without undoing them (and now they are FAR too big because i'm now a size 8). I loved those jeans (even though I only wore them for a handful of weeks before they got too big!) so yesterday I went out and bought the same pair (cheap in walmart, only $15 so why not) in 8 :D).

    And yes, thank god for sales racks! 4.40 is beyond a bargain! (LUCKY!)

    Great job!! I, too, have gotten rid of most of my 14s, finished that up today....not entirely comfy in my 12s, although they look fine on me....it's just an image thing.

    Thanks for all the great comments! To answer a few questions...I am 5'5". I will soon be 50! And cannot remember the last time I wore a size 10! I also bought a pair of pants and a shirt from New York and Company for $15....for both!! I am one of the best bargins shoppers of ALL time! My favorite designer is Clearance!!! LOL!
