So a few weeks ago I decided to do something I hate...go jeans shopping. I had no choice because ALL my jeans were way too big and no longer stayed up, which is great. But still...I hate jeans shopping!!
I grabbed a size 8 in some really cute skinny jeans. I held them up, they seemed like they would fit, and I threw them over my arm and headed for the check out...phew! But there was a little voice in the back of my mind telling me to try them on, just in case they didn't fit right. So I slowly made my way back to the fitting room and what do you know?! They were TOO BIG!! What?!! Did I really need a SIZE 6??! I held myself back from running to the rack and grabbing a size 6 (still in shock!!). Instead I walked like a civilized person, grabbed a size 6, and prepared myself for the harsh reality that these probably wouldn't even make it up to my waist, much less zip!
But you know what? They did fit, and perfectly at that! I did a victory dance, right there in the fitting room!
Now I know a size 6 isn't a huge deal to everybody out there. For some, it's a huge size they will never get up to. For others, it's a size they've dreamed of being for years. For me, it's a victory in my weight loss journey, and I'm proud to say I'm a size 6!
