My first pair of Levi’s…

Wednesday, August 15, 2007

Back in May when I visited Erie, PA my sister in law found a pair of jeans for me – Levi’s – I’ve NEVER had a pair of Levi’s before. When she handed me them I realized they were a 22… I was just into a 24 at the time and in the midst of my first plateau… I hesitated to buy them but when I realized they were on sale for $9.00 I thought what the heck… got them back to the motel room and tried them on thinking they’d NEVER fit and I could get them on and do them up… sitting and breathing on the other hand were not happening.

Since my plateau I had gained 14 lbs of the 42 I had lost… and have been feeling like those jeans are NEVER going to be “big” on me. I’ve since lost 9 of those 14 lbs and decided today is a good day to try them on… my DH and I had been out to dinner and I even indulged in a dessert!!! (did an extra bit on the treadmill to counteract that but it was SO good!!!).

So… here I am feeling “full” still from dinner and thinking about trying on the jeans… so I decide what have I got to lose? I’ll just know how much farther I need to go before I can really wear them out! Shock of shocks… I can get them on… zip them up and breath…sitting not quite “comfy” yet… don’t know how long I’d actually be comfortable wearing them for but at least I know they “fit” better than they did in May!!!

    Speaking of jeans I still have sizes 12 to 24! I can actually wear my 22 and that is a good thing. Lets go girls (and guys) we can do it.
    Been years since i wore levi's I have worn the bigger cut Faded Gory, what a name huh.
    Keep up the good work and we can do it!

    WAY TO GO!! My absolute favorite pair of jeans are Levi's and they're size 22. :o) They're getting a little roomy...but my other 22s aren't. Ah well. I won't be sad if I have to buy a 20! You'll get there, Nancy! You're doing SO well!
