So my 38 inch pants have started to become a real problem. Yesterday I wore a pair to work and they were so baggy and they were falling off the front of my hips and I kept having to pull them out of fear that I was going to be exposing myself. I had not planned to do this yet, but I pulled out my "skinniest" 36 inch pants today just so I could wear something else. They DO fit, which is amazing. They are very snug in areas, especially the hips and thighs, so I know I have some room for improving the fit, which is leaving me feeling a little uncomfortable and self-conscious today (feeling like they are drawing a lot of attention to my hips and making them look bigger), but I have to remember that not long ago, it would have been totally impossible for me to even zip these up. Plus, having these be on the snug side just means they will last longer as my waistline continues to decrease. ;)
I definitely have to buy a belt this weekend so I can continue wearing my 38s, though. I don't think it would be practical for me to get more pairs of 36s since my waistline goal is to be no bigger than 32. Plus, a belt will be useful when I get to that day where my 36s are baggy.
