Baggy Britches!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

What a fun evening! I actually had to break down and buy a new pair of jeans. I was tripping on the cuffs of the 20/22's because I couldn't keep them up at the waist in spite of the elastic. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on new jeans, because I'm still a work in progress, so I went with my husband to Wal-Mart this evening. I tried on everything they had and finally settled on a pair of SIZE 16 Short. I can't remember how many years it's been since I've been into a 16. Another milestone reached!

I am gradually cleaning out my closet and filling plastic bags full of baggy britches and blouses that now look ridiculous. As I fill a bag I take it to a local charity for the homeless. How sweet it is! We both benefit.!

I can't imagine how I could have done this without all the terrific support and encouragement I get from my SparkPeople Friends. You have made a significant impact on my life and I will be forever grateful.

    Isn't it wonderful!!! I'm doing the same thing. I just bought a size 10 pair of jeans today and a men's small sweatpants. I couldn't NOT buy then when they fit in that size. I was up to a 14/16 in bottoms and XL in tops.

    Yay! That's awesome! Mine are baggy, but I have so far to go I'm afraid to spend money on clothes for a month.

Great job!
