Default NSV--Jeans!

I have not worn jeans in many, many years, although I have desperately wanted to. I have always had a bit of trouble finding jeans that fit well (for some reason, the waist is ususally too big, but I can't wear a smaller size because they would not fit in the hips). And, even when I found jeans that fit, I just never felt like I looked very good in them.

Today, I went to a clothing store I have never been to before. My sister-in-law is a big fan of this store, so I went to get a gift certificate for her. While I was there, I saw some cute jeans. For reasons that aren't entirely clear to me, I grabbed a pair of jeans that are a size smaller than the pants I am currently wearing and tried them on. To my complete amazement, they fit perfectly and they looked pretty good on me! I ended up buying two pair and wore one to a party this evening. I got a lot of compliments.

Wearing jeans that I can feel good in has felt so out of reach to me for so long. Being able to find jeans that fit (and then actually wearing them) is a big deal for me. And, this NSV came at the right time. I only lost .2 this week and was feeling a bit out of sorts over it. The jeans have improved my outlook!

Thanks for letting me share this with you!

J, I know just how you feel. I too have a hard time finding jeans that fit me right, so I just tend to avoid wearing them. I look forward to the day that I can walk into a store, try on a pair of jeans, and have them fit perfect. Thanks for sharing...it is encouraging! Congrats!

Michelle and cabinwife, thanks to both of you! Most people in my life would not understand why this is such a big deal to me. It is so nice having people out there who get it.

Cheers,

J

I think jeans are a big nightmare for most of us in one way or another so we can all understand your joy and amazement over finding jeans that fit and look good, too!

Thanks for sharing - it's fun to celebrate this victory with you - keep up the good work - there will be more victories like this for you - and we'll all be here to cheer you on!

Finding a good pair of jeans can be so thrilling! I have a problem finding a good fitting pair because if I buy them snug enough so that they do not sag on the butt area they tend to leave me with a muffin top. I am really working on that muffin top issue though!

Anywas, I am glad you found jeans that you like and make you happy!

Default sometimes the scale tells half truths

Hey congratulations on the great accomplishment! It is so great to find something fits that you couldn't fit or feel comfortable in before. And the scale! Sometimes the 2 lbs doesn't register as progress but what is difficult to sometimes see is the change in our body shape - 2 lbs lost could equal to losing 3 lbs of body fat but gaining 1 lb of muscle. So, way to go! Now hit those jean stores!!

LOL I thought I was the only one with jeans issues. I only wear leggings because of this. On black friday I actually bought to pair of pants but....the fit good in the butt but in the front like kind of big, they are perfec around the waist but too loose on my legs...a size smaller was good in the leg area but was about it....it's horrible. Kind of depressing....

Congrats to you though, I can imagine how exciting it must feel!

Thanks so much! It was completely unexpected; I am really not sure why I even grabbed the jeans to try on, but I am so glad I did.

Cheers,
