I’m not afraid to say I have been terrified of going shopping. Anyone who knows me probably thinks I’m lying. I love shopping- but shopping for new clothes? Terrifying. I’ve been very lucky to have awesome friends and family that have passed a ton of clothes my way. I’m terrified of thinking I’m down a size and actually not being there yet. I didn’t want the disappointment. Of course-what size you are really depends on where you are shopping. For all the dudes reading this- Vanity Sizing is real and it’s horrible!
So when I started this journey back in October, I was an “upper” size 22. My 22’s were starting to fit a little tight and I was staring down a size 24. My T-shirt size was an XXL.
That being said, I have been sitting on a gift card to Old Navy from Christmas. I decided to stop into Old Navy tonight trying to kill time before meeting my parents for supper. For giggles, I grabbed a pair of size 20 jeans- just to see if they fit. Imagine my surprise when they were too big!!!!! Of course I’m shopping by myself so I have to get dressed and go get the size 18. I’m almost freaked out in the middle of the dressing room!!!!
Here is the picture to prove it!!!
