I've had a pair of jeans that I've been aiming to get into for a very long time. A while back I had bought 2 pairs of jeans from Gap. One light, and one dark, in a size zero. We all know Gap vanity sizes so it's really more like a size 2-4. Anyway, the light ones fit perfectly but I could not for the life of me get the dark ones on... I guess it's a difference in the fabric but there was literally like a whole size of difference between them! Anyway, I kept them because I had already taken the tags off after trying on the other ones and I figured eventually they might fit and would give me something to aspire to.
And today... I put them on. And got them over my butt. And got them buttoned and zipped (with a bit of hard work!). They are still quite tight in the waist/hip area... like I wouldn't wear them in public because I'm coming over the top a teeny bit, but I'm in them!! I never thought this would happen. They will most likely fit perfectly when I hit goal. I am SO excited. I have a new motivation to finish this now.
... I just need to get them hemmed. I hate being short! Haha
