Last year, I bought a $200 pair of jeans marked down to $10 at Marshalls (good ole Marshalls). Even though the tag said they were my size, when I tried to get them on, they wouldn't even get up my leg. I thought they were probably mistagged from the girls dept. (smiling) Usually, I'd just donate them in my bi-monthly donation bag to a fave non-profit, but I held onto them cause I liked the way they were made.
About a month ago, I was clearing out clothes I never wear, I came upon these jeans and decided to try them on. They fit. Then the light went on - oh, I get it, these are what I've heard about being skinny jeans. They are cute, but I really don't care for restrictive stuff so I wear them when I'm in the mood (and when it's not hot). Like, to concerts, etc. They DO bunch a bit at the ankles, so what's up with that?
I have to smile at what a difference a year makes. Not that I've lost any more weight, but I HAVE been exercising more and I guess my body responded by shifting stuff around. As I've blogged before, I can see my nether regions now when looking down. (smiling)
And, yes, I've said this about a bzillion times. I've never had a weight problem in my life, so when I packed on hormonal/stress/overeating weight about 6 years ago, it was a shocker in soooo many ways. I have to blog about how I've reverted to being able to eat anything and not gain. I know that's not going to last long, so I have to curb this habit. I've discarded a lot of that gained weight, but still have about 15-20 to go, if I want.
Wishing all a happy day.
