My New ‘Skinny Jeans’

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.

  1. Congratulations! You look fantastic! It feels amazing to throw all those old clothes out, doesn’t it. I have those same Old Navy compression pants (the black and pink ones) they are SO comfy to work out in. Keep up the good work! 🙂

  2. Great job! It feels so good to step into a dressing room and put on a size you haven’t seen in years doesn’t it? I’m planning a window shopping day soon. I started in a 22 and am down to a 14 (rogue pair of 10’s on today!)! I just want to go to the Mall and go into a regular store rather than a plus size one! For the first time in 7 years I’ll be able to shop in pretty much any store I want to.
    Keep up the great work! It’s so worth it!
