The Holy Grail (Photos)

Thursday, February 07, 2013

ahh yes... the Holy Grail... I speak not of a cup but rather a... Pair of Jeans!

A pair of Levis jeans that my mother purchased in 1976, before her and my father were married. My mother and I have always looked at these Jeans as our ideal size. If we could wear them, then all was right with the world. Thing is... I could NEVER fit in them in my adult (ok, my adult and since the age of 12) life.

Well guess what??

After being able to not only fit in them, but find out they were a little on the too big side it made my day.

I also made my famous chocolate peanut butter filled cupcakes with peanut butter icing. After my mother and I figured out that each cupcake clocks in at about 400 calories each... I didn't even want to touch them! Why? Because I can wear these jeans!!! The fact I can wear these jeans after not being able to since age 12 makes me not even want to go off plan.

I did it! I freaking did it!!!

    Great blog. I very much enjoy seeing that smile and look on your face when you're holding up the jeans. Thanks for sharing.

    That is AWESOME! Love that they are even a little loose on you! And even better, you didn't eat a cupcake emoticon

    So you get into the dream jeans and reward yourself with peanut butter filled cupcakes? Ok, but just one.
