I have been a size 16 for like three years! Well I have only lost like nine lbs and 2 inches, but I wanted to try on a pair of size 14 LEE's at walmart. THEY ZIPPED and BUTTONED. I just need to lose about 3-5 more lbs so that my gut itn't peeking over, but they actually fit. Then I tried on a pair of LEVI"s and they were too tight.
I wish pant sizes were more consistent.
Just wanted to share my happy news and keep myself motivated.
