OMG!! The zipper on my jeans is not broken, it was just under pressure!

Thursday, December 02, 2010

On this journey to be healthier, I am learning to celebrate the small milestones. I have a pair of size 18 jeans that fit me very uncomfortably and the zipper would always unzip. (But I like them and I refuse to go to a size 20) I thought it was broken, I liked the jeans so much that I would just where a longer shirt to cover this "defective" zipper.

Well after wearing the jeans all day today and the fly not unzipping once..I realized something! THE ZIPPER WASN'T BROKEN IT WAS JUST UNDER PRESSURE FROM ATTEMPTING TO HOLD IN MY BELLY, LOL. But now that I lost a few pounds, there is less fat pressure building up in the jeans! emoticon

My little victory! I didn't drop a pants size and the jeans are still snug but I lost enough weight to relieve some of the FAT PRESSURE that was building up in my jeans and my zipper is staying up!

Yay Me!!! emoticon

    I do believe that is a emoticon moment!

    A few weeks ago I looked in my closet and pulled out a smaller size jeans just to see if I could get them on. I did and I didn't have to lay on the bed to get the zipper zipped! However, I had one heck of a muffin top going on and within 4 hours I had to take them off so I could breathe!!

    Keep up the good work! emoticon
