Size 11!!!!

Recommended Posts

I was at the mall the other night and wanted to try on a pair of pants but they didn't have Size 13, so on a whim

I picked up a size 11 and snuck into the dressing room fully expecting to not be able to put them on. Well imagine

my surprise when they fit!!!! So I went out and picked up about 5 other pairs of size 11 just to see if there was a mistake

in the sizing of the original pair. Nope no mistake. So then I went to another store and did the same thing!!

I honestly cannot remember being size 11 in my life, what a great feeling.

Just wanted to share.

WOW! That must have been exciting. I have a pair of jeans in a size 16 in my closet. On sunday (just to see) I decided to try them on. Well, not only did I button them up....but today I am wearing them. I was shocked. My summer goal is to be in a size 12. What size did you start at and how long did it take you to get into size 11?

 

Congrats again!

Hi there, a year ago August, so that's August 2001, I was fitting a size 18/20 from Cotton Ginny Plus. So that makes 15 months. But you know what's so weird that I've found out? That's that sizes are so arbitrary. Right now I'm wearing Levi's button fly super slim denims in a size 34, I can't fit a 15 Nevada jeans from the Sears Catalogue, I fit size 14 dresses, and I fit size 11 pants in some stores. What a range! All that time when I was bigger I somehow thought that a smaller size was written in stone, but now I know that I can be all kinds of sizes according to someone else's idea of what a number means. What a breakthrough!

The hardest(saddest?) part of this is that I still can't see a difference, even though others do all the time. Still working on that self image thing. In one of my courses at school this year, called The Body's Ways of Knowing, we read and talked about the brain and how it serves as the thing that creates our imagery and therefore our reality. So in some way, after 34 years of being big, my brain had created it's image of me as a bigger person and doesn't want to budge, and now it's up to me to re-wire it to include this new imagery. Does anyone else find this? And what do you do to REALLY see the new you in the mirror?

thanks

nancy

I was wearing 16W jeans when I started WW in October. Around Christmas I was going through a box of my "thin" clothes and found a bunch of jeans in a size 14 that I tried on just for fun. They fit!!

 

Today I went shopping, thinking that since I've made my 10% I'd buy some new pants for work. Imagine my surprise when the 14s were too big! Though they weren't actually jeans but were slacks for work, I still managed to fit in the size 12s! smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

Nancy,

I just wanted to make a comment on how we see ourselves. I have the same problem you do. I look at myself and see a big person. I know that I am wearing a smaller size but I cannot see where I have lost it. I look the same when I look in the mirror. When someone tells me how thin I am I always say thank you but I don't believe what they are saying. I don't know how to turn around that thought process. I guess we just have to keep trying.
