Size 24 Jeans!!!!!! for the first time in 20 years!
Monday, September 28, 2020
I cannot explain how huge this milestone feels for me — but let me try:
I’ve been a size 26, 28, or 30/32 my entire adult life. Even when I lost a ton of weight about 10 years ago and got lower than I am now, I was in 26s (albeit they were starting to get loose and I wore them with a belt—but I did not yet fit into my pair of motivational 24s).
The last time I wore a size 24 was in middle school. Like, 1999-2000.
And today. Today I am wearing them, and they fit perfectly (a tad snug in the waist at first, but they stretched out after a few hours and now fit like a glove).
Guys , I can’t even. I should feel really happy right now, but my anxious mind is trying to sabotage that with thoughts like, “don’t get used to it, you’ll gain like 20 lbs overnight!” ... brain, stop! I’m trying my best to actually enjoy this accomplishment and feel proud of myself.
This has been a goal of mine for almost ***20 years*** and I finally did it !
