Old Jeans, Meet New Bod

I have a pair of jeans I bought years ago but never wore.  I had been losing weight and they were too small at the time.  I bought them as incentive to help motivate me to keep on my "diet."

Sadly, those jeans still have the tag on them.  I never lost enough to be able to even button them, but I kept them around "in case."

When I started "The Year of Me"  I pulled them out and tried them on.  I could only get them up barely past my knees! 

Yesterday, I had a feeling I might be able to get them up past the thighs, but i wasn't expecting to be able to button them!  I buttoned them, zipped them, and strutted around my backyard like a freaking teenager.  I am so excited that they fit!

Well, "fit" is an exaggeration.  I had to lay on the bed in order to get them zipped and I can wear them as long as I don't try to actually sit down or all the seams'll split and the button might fly across the room.  lol   But who cares?  I am giddy as can be.

We're taking a coworker to lunch today to the Cheesecake Factory and I was going to have a little splurge type lunch.  Fitting into those jeans has invigorated me and strengthened my resolve and I'm going to have a salad instead.  I want to keep this momentum going!!!!  WOOHOO!!!

As an aside, check out the azaleas in my back yard.  I love spring in Maryland and I love my back yard!

    I didn't think it was possible to crack a smile on this growl-y crumbly day, but that pic started a smile that's still going!

Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
