I fit in an 8 today

Not sure what to do with this info. But I decided to try on clothes. I started in a very snug 16 (read should have been a bigger size but no way was I going up) I recently about 2 months ago bought 12s for the 1st time in 18 years. So I figured today I would try 10s. They were loose so I grabbed an 8 they fit. Went out and grabbed 3 different brands in 8s and they all fit. To my amazement. I wore an 8 in high school. Sure they were baggier but I am in 8s. My mind is blown. They looked so small when I held them up. In my mind I still see the me I was before I started losing weight. Not really sure where to go from here. This was beyond what my original goal was. I am elated and shocked.

    Nice work! It's going to take a while to get used to, but take a moment every time you put those new clothes on to admire yourself and acknowledge the new you! <3

    WAY TO GO!!!

    I started out in size 20/3X

    I can now wear size 8 pants! I never thought I’d see single-digit sizes again. I still browse plus-sizes at first, forgetting. And I have taken unwanted clothing from my teenage daughters!

    Also, I went from 8.5W to 8 in shoes!

    It’s awesome but I’m am freezing right now because I have much less body fat and exactly ONE winter top that fits 🥶

    Next stop, online shopping 💸
