Whoo Hoo!!! I am in jeans. A size 16 at that. I haven't worn jeans in almost 9 years. Sweats, and big shirts were the days clothing choice. He he makes for easy choosing.
In July, my granddaughter and one of my best friends took me shopping. They bought me a pair of Gloria Vanderbilt jeans...and a South Pole shirt. Oh! My! Goodness! I'm 55, and they were trying to make me look 35. What's funny, is it actually made me feel younger. I looked good! 70 lbs gone, and the not so firm starting to firm up...I was in jeans, again.
Now, 3 months later, I am so excited. The scale didn't change...but...the tape measure said volumes. Another inch in all the right places. And I no longer have wrap around breasts. So, for my birthday, I bought myself a sexy bra. YEA!!!
There are many days that I can't exercise, and my nutrition isn't always right on the money. Being disabled, I'm not always feeling up to par. But thanks to friends, and inspirational pages by others here on SP, and SP, itself; I can keep my spirits up by reading a blog from another Sparker. I can adjust my food intake if I blow it one day. I can find some exercises that I can do even while lying in bed. Without SP, I probably would have gained those 70 lbs. And I woldn't be able to wear these wonderful Jeans.
