See this? This is the sight of a very happy girl wearing size 18 jeans. I haven’t been a size 18 since I WAS 18! When I first started at my heaviest I wore a stretch size 26. I still have those jeans and I like to try them on every once and while to remind myself how far I’ve come. Truth be told I may have not tried these jeans on at all. I was on a mission to find workout pants because, other happy news, I was down to one pair of workout pants that fits. Now I’ve got a new pair of jeans that makes me just plumb happy.
I was motivated when I got home to clear my closet. It was pretty therapeutic to clear out my old clothes I plan to NEVER wear again. They’ll be going to a thrift store and be replaced with some new workout clothes. This has been my most satisfying shopping trip I’ve had in a while.
