At what point do you "officially" consider yourself in a certain size?
The brands are Lee, Levis, and Old Navy.
I remember a time, about 10 years ago, when I couldn't buy jeans from Old Navy. I think that was right when they started doing plus sizes and the stores by me didn't carry them. I haven't looked at pants in an Old Navy since.

At what point do you "officially" consider yourself in a certain size?
Say you go into a store and try on 6 pairs of pants. If 4 of them fit you in one size but you have to go up a size on the other 2 what size would you actually say you are?

I was thinking about this while I was hemming pants today. I got 3 pairs of pants, all different brands, in a size 16. However, some of my size 18 pants still fit. If that was you what size would you consider yourself?

A&E's "Heavy"
I really like the show. When they told the guy the doctor cleared him to go into the pool I was happy for him. He wanted to use the pool so much. lol!
I do wish they would cover more of the nutrition aspect and show what they look like now, but I still enjoy the show.

Get in shape for Disney.
I had the same experience at a local amusement park. I barely fit in the rides.
If you watch what you eat you can lose weight. Almost all of the weight I have lost I've done without exercise. I know I need to start exercising to keep the weight loss going though.

Flavored Drink Packets
I like to add lemon or spearmint to my water. Gives it a little flavor without worrying about additives and other things. Smile

It's been awhile since I've been here. I sort of dropped out over the holidays. Surprisingly I didn't really gain much, just about a pound. That is so ...
