On my lunch hour, I walked to a thrift store to pick up some jeans to replace some that are getting too loose. (My naked, after-morning-pee weight, which is of course lower than my official weight at TOPS, was 221 today. Soon I’l get below 100 kg!) I tried on 3 pairs of size 16 jeans – two were so small through the legs that I didn’t get them to my hips and one fit in the sense that I could zip the fly but was tighter than is flattering. I bought the tight pair figuring they’re likely to fit soon.

Anyway, it was a good reminder that even though I have size 16 regular jeans that are loose and a size 14X dress that is loose, in many brands I’ll still wear a 16 or even an 18.
