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
