The boys, errr I mean men in the audience may not appreciate or "get" this post quite as much as the women will.
A couple of days ago my sister, Ginger gave me a pair of jeans. She said, "I think these might fit you now, try them out". So I took them and they sat in my room for a couple of days. I didnt look at them or check them out at all. Afterall, Ginger is in shape and has a kickass body. She and my kid Lauren share most clothes. I was left out of that fun because of my fat ass blubber body.
This morning I was feelin a little brave when I got out of the shower and thought about the jeans. We all look in the mirror and see how things stand. At least I do and now more than ever. I've seen the transformation happening and thought to myself, today might be the day. I looked over to where the jeans were laying on my trunk. They were in the exact same spot where they landed when I threw them there the other day. I had a momentary thought, "No Way" would I fit in Gingers jeans and almost lost my nerve. I didnt want to try them on to find they didnt fit and get bummed out. Then I thought, "fuck it, lets try them on for shits and giggles to see how much more I had to go before they'd fit". I would treat them like a goal of sorts.
I didnt hold them up, didnt look at the brand and certainly didnt look at the size. I just went for it. I put one leg in the pants and then the other. The true test was yet to come....would they slide up and over my hips. Low and behold they did!!!!! And not only that they actually buttoned with little to no effort. WTF?????? These must be Gingers fat jeans. I went over to the full length mirror and just stood there looking. I damn near cried.
They looked good! I had on jeans that hugged my hips, ass and thighs and they looked GOOD!
Still in disbelief I decided to push my luck and check out the size. I took them off and noticed the brand first....Lucky Brand Jeans. Wow, I cant wear Lucky Brand because they dont fit me! The size tag was next.....huh??? What the hell?? They have to be mislabeled. Fucking 32's??!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! I cant wear a 32 inch waist!!
I was wearing a 32 inch waist pant today and looking good. I got compliment after compliment at work. Not that I havent had people saying I'm looking good and they can see a difference lately. But I'm still wearing all my old shorts and they are 4 x's bigger and baggy now.
Today I looked good in jeans in the first time in a long time.
When Ginger got home tonight she flipped out when she saw me. She made me come to her place and try on a bunch of other jeans and shorts she had. I got into American Eagle Womens 12's tonight!!
Even though the contest is over at work I still weigh in on the scale at there to keep it consistent. I only weigh myself once a week on Fridays. Almost 3lbs more gone as of today. =) Thats 40lbs total so far if you've been paying attention. lol It makes me a little giddy!
My goal has changed. I was trying to lose 12 more lbs, but I think its going to be 20lbs instead. Its the weight I was before I was preggers with Lauren. I think thats what its going to take to look totally in shape.
It feels so good to be getting my body back. I like it.
