As we all know, I gained back 40-45 pounds back from when I lost 80 pounds in 2007. My inches around my body is pretty much the same as before weight loss. I just don't understand why I can wear my skinny clothes still. They don't look as good. You can see more rolls than I used to but I can still wear them (except the things that were borderline to tight when I bought them). Although I choose not to wear them because they don't give me the same "I'm skinny high" that I would usually get proudly donning them. I have tight 18s I can wear yet I can wear the only pair of 26s(sans belt) that I kept. When I was cleaning, I picked up some clearance shorts I grabbed in size 16 or 14. They were tight then and something I wouldn't dare wear in public. I tried them on today just to see how much they wouldn't even zip or anything.
They fit. Not well at all. Probably tighter than they were in 2007 but I could zip them up and everything. I guess it's just frustrating cause I would think that if my measurements are still similar to my starting weight, why do these fit? Did the fat come back on my body and is "laying" different? I don't know. This is boggling my mind. It's still my same body shape. That didn't change. Although I still see saggy skin left over from 2007. Not as much in certain areas, like my tummy (that was like saggy skin central).
