On a whim, I tried on some old jeans since the 14/16 was getting baggy. I comfortably fit into the size 12. I started on June 4th and lost 11 pounds so far but didn't notice how much my body changed. I have been hanging out in pajamas and big t shirts for years and today I am wearing the cutest jeans and top. I feel a lot better! Thanks for all the support everyone.
