Size 24 to a size 8 in less than 9 months!

Options
I went to Kmart and tried on a pair of jeans curious on what size I was. I fit into a size 8. I was able to get a size 6 bottoned and zipped, but I'm definitely not a 6. I was so excited and shocked to fit into a size 8. I didn't like any of the jeans they had at Kmart so went to Kohl's and tried on a few there all size 8 and brought my first pair of size 8 home since highschool.

    that's fantastic! My goal size is a size 8, though I'm only doing it to see if I can. I'm not sure if I'll like my body then. Right now, I'm a 10-12.

    Wow thats inspiring! Must be an awesome feeling and you should be incredibly proud! Question: did you notice that the sizes went faster towards the end of your weight loss? I ask because I started at a size 20-22, and ive lost 33lbs so far and finalllly went down to a size 18. Just hoping theyll go down a little quicker now maybe. Anyways, best of luck to you and Congratulations!!!

    They go down much quicker after size 16 or 18. I actually didn't even lose much weight on the scale when I went from my size 11 pants to the size 8. Maybe 5 pounds at most. It took about 20 pounds to go down in size from the higher sizes. I really wasn't expecting to get a size 8 on at all I was just curious on how close I was when I tried them on and to my surprise they fit. So then I tried a 6 out of curiousity and they zipped and buttoned but definitely did not fit so I'm guessing within the next 10 pounds I'll be in the 6
