Ladies, ladies, ladies! Ok, gents too, but I seriously don't think you guys'll appreciate this blog the same way...
Ladies, my skinny jeans (the ones I purposely bought a size too small, and then grew 2 sizes larger than... ok, you do know what I'm talking about, right?? ) - ARE TOO BIG! They are falling off my hips!!! Oh man, I've never been so happy to NOT be able to wear something I really like.
So it started like this. After a rough patch 2 weeks ago when I didn't lose any weight and was feeling kinda low, I decided to dress up real nice for a presentation at work. Ok, also for this guy I've had my eye one... but I digress! So anyway, I started just throwing stuff together, you know, this skirt with that top and those shoes, when I noticed that I seemed to have more fashion combinations than I had 6 weeks before. It was all the same clothes really, but now that I didn't have to worry so much about hiding the muffin top with this jacket, or wearing a really long thigh-skimming top with that pair of pants, suddenly I had a whole new wardrobe.
Well. I hauled out all the clothes in my wardrobe and had a 2-hour dress-up session, just me and my mirror. Oh joy, to have so many 'new' clothes without spending a dime
. And suddenly, there it was. The dreaded dark pair of skinny jeans, lying at the bottom of the closet. I eyeballed it for a few seconds, then thought, o why not. Those babies slid smoothly over my hips without a hitch, settled at my natural waist (not 3 inches below, lol!), fastened without straining the button or cutting off my circulation. In fact, there was a huge gap at the waist into which both fists fit comfortably. In fact - they DIDN'T FIT! I'd lost so much weight I'd blown past my skinny jeans without knowing it. Hah!
Well, I'm determined to get some joy out of those jeans. Lord knows I waited long enough! So, I'm getting them slimmed down for me, and come next weekend, I'll be introducing them jeans to the world for the first time
