  • Today, I lost track of time while I was doing a belly dancing video. Ahhhh, time to pick up the boyz from school and I'm late, POOP!! I tear off my skirt and quickly grab the closest blue jeans hanging over the bedroom door...

    (Week or so ago I bought a pair of blue jeans off the clearance rack at JCP. $5! They were size 16 and I usually wear 18 to a 20... but I thought, "here's a tangible goal".)

    I get these new pants half way up and it hit me, "really?? today??"

    YES!! Sure, I got a little muffin top, but I'm HAPPY with a side of HAPPY!!!

    As I sit here typing this I remember last night as I was shaving my legs thinking, "My skin feels tighter, cool."

    I freakin' LOVE this!! I am making progress that I can see & feel!!

    I AM SO HAPPY!!

  • Another great place to get goal jeans for cheap are at goodwill! We have a really nice one in my area and I always wait for their 50% off days. The jeans I'm currently wearing were $1.50 lol and my goal jeans cost me a whole $3. lol
  • JennieLovesKisses- YES! I LOVE the Goodwill!! I'm 6'1-6'2 ish so I have a hard time finding long jeans, but sometimes the Goodwill surprises me =)
