So a friend of mine about 4 years ago gave me a bunch of her clothes she got to skinny for(thanks Liz). I was going to lose weight for real that time. I was about 220, and this time I was going to get serious, I told everyone that I was going to do it this time. I even had someone to do it with(not Liz), we had a plan, a plan that we made while smoking in my back yard.
I told Liz about how I wanted to lose weight and she had just shed a few pounds and had clothes that didn't fit her anymore, so she gave me all these 10's, stuff I could not even button up but I would soon I swore. Well I obviously did not follow through with that weight loss, our start date was July 1st, and I found out I was pregnant with Riley on July 4th. I did quit smoking the day I found out I was pregnant, but my resolve to eat right, and walk everyday at least 15 minutes was thrown out the window, because I was now eating for 2(apparently I though that meant I would be eating for 2 grown men), and exercise I was too sick, too tired, heck I used ever excuse in the book.
So back to those jeans I put them in a box in my basement and never thought of them again. The other day I got sick and tired of my size 12 falling off my butt when ever I did anything. I went through some boxes found these 10's from American Eagle, put them on and holy crap they fit! They are a bit tight, but not constricting tight. They are completely comfortable and do not leave marks when I take them off. I figure 5 pounds lost they are a perfect fit, but the defintly fit better than the 12's. So I am happy to say I may be spending a life time in the 190's it seems, but I am atleast doing it in a size 10 pair of jeans!
Oh and as a reward I promised myself when I have 2 weigh ins out of the 190's I will buy another pair of 10s for myself.
