I have had a pair of jeans hanging in my closet with the tag still on them from January 2003. It was after I had my daughter and I thought I lost all of the "baby weight", I went into Lane Bryant and bought a pair of size 16 jeans (my normal size at the time.) I choose LB because their clothes ran a little bigger. My husband said, try them on. I declined, "No, no, no! I've been a size 16 for years, I can get in these jeans." I got them home and put them on. (Let me rephrase that statement.) I got them home and I attempted to put them on and I could barely get them past my thigh. Holy Crap!! What the heck!!! For 7 years those jeans have been my nemesis. That was the point I realize I was a plus size store shopper! I thought I would be doomed to a life of elastic waist jeans that were a denim/spandex blend.
I am giving myself until March 2011 to fit into those jeans comfortable. I would love to say February but I want to be victorious! THE BATTLE OF THE JEANS IS ON!!!!
