I used to categorize my thinner jeans in categories named:
"Reaching until my knees", "Reaching until my hips", "Breathless" (closing but I was not able to breath with them
) and "Shadow" (I thought I had to be a shadow to fit in these jeans and I didn't know why the heck I bought them!).
Jeans is a great indicator to see how well you're doing! And it seems you are doing a great job!
