So when I started this journey in January, I was devastated to have to go shopping at the time and buy a size 24 jeans. I had been wearing a size 22 jeans all last year and they had worn a hole in the thighs, so I needed new ones. Obviously they'd stretched out from wear, and I didn't realize that my 22s were actually allowing me to get bigger, because when I tried on 22s in January, they were too small. I bought the size 24s because I needed jeans that fit, but I only allowed myself the one pair.
The last 4 months I have lost 30 pounds, and I have been continuing to wear these 24s all along, wondering why my size wasn't going down. I even went to the store to try on pants at some point a month ago, and was still not fitting in the smaller size.
Then last week, my mom - who is my work out partner - told me she was buying me new jeans because my 24s were sagging on my butt. So I went to the store, found the same jeans and pulled on the size 22! They fit! I was SO THRILLED!
I wore my new jeans for the first time Monday to work. By lunch, they felt baggy on me. It was strange. So this morning, just for the **** of it, I pulled out a pair of size 20 jeans that my friend gave me last year to fit into when I got down a few sizes... they're practically new, and I hadn't worn them yet. I pulled them on and buttoned them without even trying!
I'm wearing a size 20 jeans today!! That's 2 sizes down! I didn't think I was losing weight in the right places to change my jeans size, but now I finally see that I am! Doing the happy dance today!
