Jeans that make you weep!

I bought a pair of jeans on a whim after they got a rave review from my friend Catherine. I was ambitious and bought down a size from the downsized size I am currently wearing from Old Navy (got that?). I tried them on with my lady bloat and they couldn't even come close to buttoning. They were sitting there last night mocking me, and something said, give it another shot before you return them. To my total and utter amazement they fit. They more then fit, they looked awesome.
If you aren't familiar with the trilogy of "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" The actual "pants" are this magical pair of jeans that fit all the girls even though they have different body shapes and sizes and they all look fantastic in them. I believe I stumbled upon the Traveling Pants in my local Costco store.
I haven't been this particular size in probably close to 6 years now. I put those jeans on and buttoned them and actually got weepy. I was so giddy with joy that all my hard work is paying off and that the goals that I set myself are actual possible. It also reconfirmed that it is about more then the number on the scale. It makes me happy to see body parts getting leaner, tighter, and less giggly. And now I have these magical pants, I mean what more can a girl ask for????
On the downside, I do have some really nice clothes that look ridiculously huge on me now. Since my belly has been a major problem area I camouflage it with my clothes but now everything is much too flowy and big and is adding volume. I have watched enough episodes of "What Not to Wear" to know that isn't a good thing. I need a Stacey and Clinton closet intervention. I suppose there is not greater reason to go shopping then your clothes being SO big on you they might fall off.
Happy Hump Day

  1. First of all, congrats on the magical jeans! That is such a great and rewarding feeling. I'm so so happy for you.

    Funny that you're mentioning the clothes issue. This is something I have been wanting blog about lately, but haven't yet. I have bought a couple pairs of pants that I can ALMOST get into. The rest of my clothes are looking very baggy and pretty bad. But I don't want to go out and buy all new stuff when I'm still losing weight. It's a very frustrating transition. I have a box full of clothes that I'll be able to get into hopefully soon, but in the meantime everything that fits me now is getting big. Arggg!!!
