I can buy clothes at a regular store

So I bought 2 pair of jeans and a bathing suit at Costco yesterday for a grand total of 50 dollars and in the plus size store 1 pair of jeans are 80 dollars.

I am so excited to be in a size 14 and be able to shop at a regular store. I was a 20 in may and stuck at tje plus size stores and had been for most of my adult life. I'm halfway there down 66 pounds yay can't wait....wonder if I will hit a single digit size

    Congrats! It's sooooo nice being able to walk into a regular store and just buy something (especially if it's on sale to boot... they never had sales at the plus-size stores around here...)

    Congrats! Feels so great, right? I'm at about the same place as you. 60 down with another 65 to go. I'm starting to have the same feelings. I've only shopped at plus size stores/sections that I don't really know where to begin!

    The great thing is you can go to pretty much any store and shop. Try Old Navy if you want to get something that's not to expensive. But being able to shop in non plus size stores you should be able to find great deals. I went to Belks the other week and found some great shirts, on sale plus 60-70% off. Good luck shopping.

    That's awesome! It is such an odd feeling after many years of plus size shopping (for me) to walk into "normal" stores and feel pretty confident grabbing something off the shelf knowing it will fit. Might not look good - Lol - but it will go on.

    Congrats Lady!! I totally know the feeling! I used to be a 28. I wear 12s and medium and large tops now. The feeling of knowing I'm never shopping in those departments again is life changing. Way to go!!!

    I also went to an outdoors store..hiking kyak snowshoe you get the idea. before I gained this 130 pounds I shopped there alot hubby and I went on week long hiking the trail backpacking trips. last year I went in to grab something g for a child and I felt like everyone was thinking she is too big to hike kyak whatever (no one made me feel that way) but the thing is I was too out of shape. yesterday I went in and bought a new day hike in pack and I felt comfortable in the store. I looked around and thought I want to go snoe showING and kayaking and backpacking and all those fun things I can do again! I think I had babies gained a ton of weigjt cause I gave up all the outdoor things I loved....but I'm back!!

    thank you all for the encouragement it has been a strange ride but so glad I didn't give up.

    Oh my goodness-congratulations! What a great feeling that must be! I currently have a cart full of Lane Bryant 14/16 sale items that I just can't pull the trigger on. Not sure if they will fit in a month's time. Can't wait to be able to take advantage of the cute and bountiful offerings at TJ Max and Ross.
