Talking A Happy Dance

1st, down 4 lbs. finally

2ndly, more importantly!!! i FOUND JEANS!!!

I decided last year that the first step in recovery (from being a fattie) is to give up elastic waisted pants LOL

Jeans are always hard to fit, and I find the 2% spandex annoying, and they seem to cling to me to the knee and then flare out. Not a good look on a fat girl.

Imagine my delight, when on a whim, I tried on jeans at Giant Tiger! (Canadian gals know what i mean) a kind of low-end, bargain basement type place, and they fit like a DREAM!!! zippered!! nice and snug across the tummy but not too tight, nice and straight down NO denting in at the knees! yay!!! no tapering in and no flaring out!!

and $25 each! I got a super nice dark wash, a medium wash and a black pair!!! Had to share, only a select few understand the delirium I'm feeling at the moment LOL

Started: 323
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now! Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
Goal: 160

I think i know how you feel! I had worn nothing but dresses until middle school, and then started wearing sweat pants.

In eighth grade i tried on my first pair of jeans, and i ended up sitting in the dressing room crying because i was so happy. they fit! and on top of that i looked pretty good, and i have never gone back to sweat pants since then .
