It has been years since I have been comfortable in jeans. Yesterday, I wore a skirt, tights, healed clogs, and a nice blouse to school. I came home and needed something comfy and pulled out a pair of jeans. After I walked down the hall and saw myself in my NEW full length mirror I just smiled. I only started wearing jeans after my first son was born and I was a stay at home mom, before that I wore them in high school. You see I hated them in HS they were always too tight but being young and vain as only teenagers can be I wore them. Then in college when I gained a LOT of weight they didn't make them in my size. It wasn't until Lane Bryant came out with the body type jeans that I would wear them and even then I never felt comfortable. At the end of the day I would feel cut in half when I sat down or even the dreaded toe of camel would appear. So I maybe owned one or two pairs. Now, they are my go to item of clothing on the weekends. I would wear them every day if I could! What a long way I have come in the 9 months I have been on this diet pact!
I remember having a conversation with my sister once and it went something like this:
Sister: I've decided I would rather be a little fat...do you notice fat people don't have wrinkles?
Me: They don't have what?
Sis: Wrinkles, I've decided that I'm going to be happy with my chubby self because I'll have less wrinkles.
Now that I've lost 54 pounds (2 pounds down in my goal for 4 before the end of the year) I'm noticing more wrinkles on my face, especially under my eyes! Now, I'm not sure if it is my desire for "me" time and staying up late to watch FBI agents catch the psycho of the week or if I'm loosing my chub wrinkle buffer. Until I figure it out I think I'll go the lotion/potion rout...oh and maybe try to get to bed earlier, too! :)
