New pants...

I must admit that throughout this journey it has been fun to buy pants. I remember the first time I fit into a single digit size!! It felt AWESOME!!! Well, after years of shoving my HUGE body into a size 16/18 with massive amounts of hangover... I am a little timid about lowrise jeans, and jeans that really let it all HANG OUT!! I wear pants that I know are a little too big in order to protect myself from the muffin top... SO.. I haven't bought pants in a while... my size 7/8's were getting kind of ridiculously large and so.. today.. I stepped into Plato's Closet to buy smaller jeans. Umm... let me just say that I am still incredibly frustrated by my skin literally hanging over the edge of my pants but... after trying on like 15 different pairs of size 5/6 jeans... I had to admit to myself that they were not flattering... and try on size 3/4!!! HOLY BANANAS!!! One year ago almost to the day I bought 2 pairs of size 2 Lane Bryant jeans (these are the equivalent of a 16 and I pretty much had to lay down to zip them up!!). Today... I bought 3 different brands of size 3 jeans... IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!! One year... of hard work... and not giving up on myself... I would never have imagined this day would come.. but it's here! It's reality!! It feels FANTASTIC!!!

Hey MAMA!! I think we might be the same size! ;o) I tried on some Maurices brand size 3's that were TOO BIG!! But.. just to keep this competitive and all that jazz... I'd probably need a ZERO! ;o)

DAMN! i have 2 pairs of 3/4 and i don't like to wear them anymore because it looks like i have a load in my ass! i wore them shopping sunday and was running into the stores (avoiding the rain) and had to hold my drawers! LOL i can easily yank them down to pee w/o unzipping! he he sadly they are NEW! i love them, just wish they fit me! waste of money i guess! so now the only pair that fit are the 1/2's and they are NOT tight! i have plenty of wiggle room for the holiday's! LOL atleast they are cheap enough to buy more! maybe if you have some 1/2's that are too big for you, you can hand them down to me ;o)

Honestly... since January I have been impressed by your willingness to work. I remember you getting up at an hour I wouldn't even consider and going to work out. You deserve it! Definitely.
