Last year I purchased the smallest size in jeans that I can remember for my adult life. Even with the vanity sizing, it was small. But, this year I cannot get those things past my hips.
It must be that when I was going to the laundermat last winter that the dryer must have shrunk them.
I honestly do not know if I will ever get them back on. I took my measurements today and, if I recall correctly, I am about the same size. I weigh about 5 pounds more than I did back then. However, after I had an 8 pound weight gain this spring (courtesy of Peanut Buster Parfaits from the Dairy Queen), I got serious about getting rid of the extra pounds. I started strength training.
So, it must be I am gaining muscle.
I have no clue as to whether or not I'll ever get back into those jeans but I do know now that I am exercising more days of the week, I feel a lot better. Also, I am cutting back on my morning coffee and am noticing that I am sleeping better than before.
