I'm doing the happy dance.
I noticed that my pants were getting looser. So I decided that I should try a lower size. It was very hard. I hung the pants on the door and kept just watching them while doing other things. Eventually, I worked up the guts and put them on. I GOT THEM ON. They are still snug but I hope this will be extra incentive to get thru holidays. I plan to wear them all day.
Don't know why I was so nervous. But I'm glad that I'm seeing NSV.
