I am finally, finally back to a single digit size. I say back to it. But, the last time I was there was about 25 years ago. This actually sort of snuck up on me.
Pre-tummy tuck, after I got to my goal weight of 146 pounds, I was mostly a size 12. It was frustrating to me as I saw others of similar weight were often wearing much smaller sizes. But, I had all that loose skin plus high body fat. So, there it was.
Post-tummy tuck I was a solid size 10. That was great. I bought new size 10 jeans. Several months ago I also bought a “nice” pantsuit to wear when I can’t wear the jeans and workout clothes I wear almost all the time. It was size 10 and I figured I would be wearing it for awhile. I didn’t really expect to get to a size 8 until I lost another 10 pounds or so.
Then, in May I had some touch ups to my cosmetic surgery including a small amount of upper abdomen liposuction. It wasn’t much. A little over a pound was removed. It was for upper abdomen counter not to change my weight.
Well, the other day I needed to wear that pantsuit again. And…it was loose. It was really loose. Right now I actually weigh about 4 pounds more than I weighed post-tummy tuck. And, at that time I was a solid size 10. But, now – 4 pounds heavier – I am a size 8 in pants. Go figure.
I went shopping today and tried on pants in several brands and it was official. I am a size 8. Yay!
