What makes me feel good!

Monday, October 04, 2010

It has been awhile since I decided to fight the clothes shopping battle. I pushed myself to go buy new jeans once I started seeing the inner thigh portion slowly starting to wear thin.
I took the leap and just went for it telling myself not to get upset about a certain size not fitting; after all, they are just clothes.

My husband and I had some gift cards from the wedding so we went on our shopping spree first. I guess I was semi avoiding going clothes shopping but he kept asking "You want to go ahead and get some jeans?" I kept saying, "Wellllll, lets go here first and before we go out to eat & head home, then we will go." So basically the jean shopping was going to be the VERY LAST thing we did. Just in case it put me in a bad mood...I was prepared!

The moment came.....we walked into Charlotte Russe....I headed over to the jeans & immediately thought "what size do I wear?" This very nice gay male sales associate approached us asking me the same thing (like he just took the words right out of my brain!) I hesitated for a minute then said "Ummm, well I think I am in a 10 or 12 depending on the brand"...I know, I know...most ppl prolly think I am crazy being worried about this because it is a 10 or 12...not a 18 or 22. So I get a few different pairs in different sizes, all in a different style. Get into the fitting room and BAM they fit. They ALL fit nicely actually! I get to one pair and BAM I need a smaller size!? WHAT!? They are 10's and I NEED A SMALLER SIZE?! I was so excited....I walked out of the fitting room & asked for a 9...the cute lil sales associate came out & said, "here you go, this is the next size down, an 8"...I said to myself "YEA RIGHT, AN 8?" Whatever....tried them on & BAM, they are now my new favorite jeans!!! EEEEE, I was so happy & this actually still keeps me motivated to keep up with the workouts!

My face lit up like a kid at Christmas when I told my husband. Of course he was like, "That's great honey" not really 100% understanding my insanely giddy ego at that moment but he knew I was happy so hey, so was he! Needless to say I want to wear these every other day. I feel so SKINNY in them & I have never looked at myself this way. I may not have ever been a big person to others, but I use to feel that way in my own world.

Anyways, I have decided to go get more in December when I lose the last bit of weight I'd like to lose. This is my gift to myself for doing so well! I have went from tracking my food everyday for the last year and a half to getting into the habit of finding my own way of tracking because I am not always by a computer. I have continued on with my success of eating right & exercising ON MY OWN and I have SP to thank for that!

    Way to go! I am currently avoiding jeans shoppingas I have been a size 10 for as long as I can remember, but they are getting tight and I don't want to move to a 12. I put on a pair of my jeans that absolutely clung to my thighs. Gross! I am glad to know that there are other people out there that are my size that are not totally satisfied with where they are at. Thanks for being my inspiration today!!!!
