I may still be 15 pounds away from goal, but I'm wearing skinny jeans today.
Last week I decided I needed a pair of jeans, so I got on a jean fitting website and found that Old Navy has a pair that should fit my body well. I have a shape where if pants fit in the hips, they gap hugely at the back of my waist. Guess? jeans were huge when I was in high school in the glorious '80s, and even though I wasn't fat, I felt like a total jeans failure because I had a curvy body and Guess? jeans were made for stick figures. I think I got a size 11 on, but they looked horrible because of the giant waist band.
Anyway, jeans and I have had a long history of not getting along. My last pair fit me relatively well, and I totally lucked into them--a size 16 Levi's that I found at JCPenney that even the sales lady said shouldn't have been in her department because they were too "young looking." They were low(er) waisted, which turns out is exactly what I need for jeans to fit me well.
At Old Navy last week, I tried on 4 different styles in 12s and had a couple 10s just in case. The Flirt Flare is the pair that fit, in a size 10. They are mid-waisted, don't gap at all, and don't pinch any muffin-top over the waist band. I've got a black cap sleeved v-neck t-shirt on, with a black belt.
I feel like a skinny girl today. If I don't lose any more weight, and can just hold on to this feeling, I'd be okay with that.
