So, I spent my Christmas money on some much needed new jeans.
I have been putting off buying new jeans, because due to my gaining of weight, rather than losing of weight, I had to buy a bigger size. That size was the biggest size I've ever had to buy and as I found that rather depressing and I didn't want to move up in size, I just never bought any. But i was having a very hard time squeezing into the old ones, not to mention they were getting ripped and worn out as I've had them for ages, and it was finally time to deal with reality. I grew larger and need a larger pant.
The plus size of all of this, is that now that my jeans actually fit, I feel better about myself. Definitely look better in my jeans. Hopefully, that will be the largest size I ever see and soon I'll start decreasing in size again.
If I gain any more weight, I'll have to find new places to shop, because I think that's the largest size those stores carry. Yikes! Maybe that's a new motivation.
I'm having more steps back rather than forward, but at least I keep taking a step forward now and again, and with practice perhaps I will start taking more steps forward consistently.
I lost weight once, without trying when I was happier than I had ever been in my life. So, I know it's possible.
