My Sweet 16

Today, for the first time in over 16 years.

My Butt is COMFORTABLY in size 16 jeans!!
A short 4 months ago I was lucky to be able to sit down wearing my size 24 jeans without having to unbutton them!

When I say comfortably, I mean I didn't have to resort to my High School "tight jeans" routine.

No wire hanger needed to push my pockets into place.
No fork needed to zip the zipper.
No jumping up and down while I zipped.
No laying down on the bed and sucking in.

I stepped into a size 16,
pulled em up,
and easily buttoned the button and zipped them up!

I am so happy I could cry!
I may never take them off!
Or remove the tag! ;)
