I'm a skirt person. I've always liked wearing skirts more than trousers. Very stuffy and old-fashioned that way, me.

However, other than my work-out clothes, and don't tell anyone else this - I have a pair of jeans. I bought them years ago, and the waist had to be taken in a bit. The last time I wore them, they were still pretty snug and uncomfortable - that was back in September. Since then they've been in my cupboard. I have no idea what size they are (and even if I did, I'm not sure what it would be in American ;) ).

But today all my skirts have to go in the wash so I pulled on these jeans...and knock me down with a feather duster if they don't gape at the waist like someone's told them Andorra just won the World Cup!

Not only that but there's room in the legs...next to my legs. I can actually do the "Swing your pants" thing (whether I'd want to is another story).

I don't know if they look 'good' on me (see my Clothing q thread) - I'm blind to this kind of thing. But DUDE.

Still not sure on the whole idea of me wearing anything other than skirts and dresses, but DUDE.

Now to just bust through to onederland ;)

Now I am totally the opposite. Give me a pair of jeans and I am golden. Skirts on the other hand? Barf. I look terrible in them. At least, it is SO hard to find a skirt that looks nice. One thing I am looking forward to as I get closer to goal is getting some dresses. I always want to have some, but I try them on in the store and I just think I look terrible. *sigh*

Thank you all!

I've just realised (duh, after six months of being on 3fc) that the clothes thing is proof that something is happening for the better inside my body. This mainly because my weight is arrrrggggggh :mad: all over the place.

Need to keep my chin up and bust through! Just like in the rugger yesterday ;)

Congrats!! That is wonderful!
I can't wait to wear jeans again.. I'm so particular about the way my pants fit. Since I've hit my all time highest weight and started coming back down, I have been wearing sweat pants or cotton pants. It will be a wonderful day when I can put on my old jeans and feel good about myself!
