Old Jeans, Meet New Bod
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!
