This morning, I woke up feeling a bit bummed. Why? Because none of my pants fit me. They're all too big
. I know, I know...that's a good thing, right? But still, I wanted to throw on some jeans that are NOT falling off of me, but I have no money right now to buy more clothes...so I'm stuck swimming in clothes that are too big for me.
My smallest jeans are a size 24. I don't own anything smaller! I thought I had 22's, but nooope. I have capri's that are size 20, but it wasn't exactly capri weather today, lol. Anyways, I don't know if you all read it, but a couple weeks ago, I was in Wal-Mart and I tried on a pair of size 18's, and was happy that I could button them.
So...back to this morning....I put on my size 24 jeans, and I felt sloppy. I was complaining about it to my mom, and she suggested that I ask my sister if she had any jeans that I could borrow. I rolled my eyes...yeah, right. My sister is 14 years old, and although she's chunky, there is no way I could wear her jeans. Still, I knocked on my sisters door, and asked her was the BIGGEST size of jeans she had. She said the biggest she had was 16's, so I said "never mind", and walked away. Then...then, mom says, "Just try them on Cassie"...and I said NO. So SHE gets a size 16 out, and makes me try them on, lol.
AND THEY FIT.
I bit snug, and a bit of a roll, but WOW, I wore a size 16 jeans today!
Of course I took a pic, thrilled! Excuse the mirror and the mess behind me...the room belongs to my kid brothers, (ages 6 & 9), so it's always a mess.
Oh! One other thing...I walked into my uncles house for Thanksgiving dinner...I haven't seen my uncle since I weighed 280lbs...he takes a look at me and says, "You've lost a LOT of weight...have you been exercising"...THEN, I got more compliments on how good I'm looking from my cousins...it was a wonderful, wonderful feeling.
I know I could have posted all of this in the NSV thread, but I am just so..THRILLED, and so proud,....so sorry if I sound boastful. Ha!
Here is the pic!
