Default I wore the Levis last night

So....I have a pair of goal jeans. They're the jeans that I wore last time when I had lost 30 pounds. I felt sexy and lean and cute in them. I have been trying them on and kept feeling that they were too tight, even though I'm only 3 pounds away from my old "Levi weight".

Last night was night 1 of my class reunion. (I won't tell you the year, but some of my classmates have grandkids....). I bought a cute white T-shirt and was going to wear my normal jeans, but then decided to give the Levi's a try. I decided to go ahead and wear them and.....they looked pretty good. I got lots of compliments; nobody specifically said, "You've lost weight" but several people said, "You look good!" So I liked that!

Last night was casual night, just beers at a local watering hole. There were other customers there besides the reunion crowd, and as I was leaving and we were all saying, "Bye! Bye!", a couple of non-reunion guys said, "Bye!" to me. One said, "Goodbye, tall lady!" (but in an admiring way). All in all, I felt really good about how I looked. It was nice, because I've been having some fat days lately and so it was good to feel healthy and cute. I might get brave and post a pic later; I dunno.

Ha, my goal jeans are STRETCH denim! I don't want to post a link that could be miscontrued as being commercial, but they are 550 Relaxed Boot cut. So they are real jeans, but with the magic of stretch denim. If they were non-stretchy? No way would I have been able to wedge my still-considerable backside into them.

But yeah, I did feel kind of great in them.
