Hot 100 Goal Adjustment!

I wrote the list of goals last night and it was before my little shopping trip today at lunch.  I had coupons at Lane Bryant so I went to get a few things.  Turns out, I already fit in size 14 jeans!  They were a teeny bit snug. Like 2 pounds and they'll be perfect. I knew the 16s were getting loose.

New Goal:
Size 12 jeans. Gulp. I've never been a 12. Not ever in my adult life. I wore a 13 once in college. Never a 12. I find it really hard to believe I'd ever wear a 12,but the jeans don't lie.

Well I was going to post a pic of me in my new OU lab coat and garb, but I can't get the damn new system to work right. Maybe later.


  1. Wasn't there a banner ad for the Special K diet earlier this week that said "jeans don't lie?" I really like that saying! My jeans are telling me I need to buy them some smaller friends. I hate putting out bucks for something I only plan to use for a month or two!

  2. That's excellent!!! What a wonderful feeling. Keep up the great work!

  3. Wowzer! The most gigantic, enormous NSV I have ever heard!

  4. girl I see 12's in your future!!! great job!!


  5. That is so exciting, Dr. F. Wow, twelves...I don't think I was ever even near a twelve. i'm excited to get into a 16. that's next for me about 10-15 more pounds...that will be the smallest I've ever been as an adult. Congrats!

  6. So exciting. I'm right behind you. Just got into 14-16's. One more size down and I won't be able to shop at Lane Bryant anymore. Kind of scary...it's been the only shop that had clothes that fit me...Going out into the real world is going to be so much fun!!!

    Keep up the great work!!

  7. That's awesome! Congrats on the size 14s!

    I'm shooting for size 12 as my next clothes goal too. We can do it! :)

  8. Cool! Hmmm, the last time I wore a 12, I must have been 15 years old. You'll be rockin those 12's by the end of the challenge for sure!

  9. Nicely done that lady! I love that old clothes (well...i say old, but a lot of the time they have only been worn a few times before growing out of them) are beginning to fit again, and the current clothes are becoming extremely baggy....what a great feeling. And you're right, the Jeans never lie - they can be so cold and unforgiving like that! ;o)

    You are really attached to this lab coat aren't you? lol....you can't keep us in suspense like this doc, i hope you get the pic sorted out soon.

  10. YEAH! You are doing so great! You motivate me to keep going even when I feel like I'm not getting anywhere! Thank you for that!

    I can't wait to see pictures SOON!!!!!

  11. If you want it to, twelve will happen. We'll all cheer for you!


Progress to TouchDown and GOALLLL!!
