New Jeans

Monday, December 30, 2013

So today I went shopping for new jeans. Back in April, when I was at a high, I was around a 14 (but I was insistent I was a 12. The pants and dresses that fit best were old 14s, but since I could pry myself into a couple 12s, that was still my size. It's the size I am in my head. You know how it is.)

Anyway,I couldn't find my jeans anywhere and wanted to wear them to a party tonight. After searching for an hour, I caved and went shopping. I grabbed a few size 12s to try on, only to have to go back and find 10s! And in some brands I found I was actually an 8! I grabbed that pair on accident, and when they fit PERFECTLY I was SHOCKED! I bought a pair of Levi's in 10 (I was between sizes in that brand) and I am still so thrilled. I'm officially down two sizes, possibly three.

I can't remember the last time I was this size. When I was at my low weight I had no money, a lot of belts, and old jeans that no longer had a size tag in them-I didn't know what size I was. In my head I was a 12, but I'm now wondering if that was wrong.

I had a little bit of parental drama tonight (more of the same old tune), but not even that can get me down today.

    This is WONDAHFUL !! DO NOT worry about the TEEN DRAMA,, it'll END before you KNOW it,, than you will WISh they were little again, when they are OUT!! I think that TEENS are created,,,so we do NOT MISS them as much when they DO move out. HAHAHAHA Only my last experience with a TEEN, was EXTREMELY GOOD ,,, LOL S always said "I am going to DO such and Such" and of course it was usually something I did NOT approve of,,, so than we'd talk,,, and SOMETIMES she'd even LISTEN !! But, she Never really did anything BAD. NO Drugs, NO Drinking,, and waited for marriage,,,, and do you I think "OH you have ur HEAD IN THE SAND !! ALL Kids do THIS !!" but, NOT !!! We are kinda religious, so all of those things were honestly out. She DID go thru a DEEP, DARK depression,,, and we even ended up on a one on one,,,for NO Self harm. That broke my HEART, but it needed to be done. At least now,,, she's more secure.

    TEEN AGE YRS !!!!
