For the past few weeks I’ve been in that in-between size. You know when the one size is too big, yet the size down is too small. So I’ve been making due with the too big size, but not feeling completely comfortable in my pants. I am having to either wear some sort of belt, or constantly hike them up to avoid tripping.
Tonight I was going through my closet trying to decide on an outfit for tomorrow, I realized I was down to 2 pairs of pants that actually kinda fit. And both pair would need to be washed if I needed to wear them tomorrow. So, out of sheer laziness of not wanting to stay up and do a load of laundry, I decided to try on some smaller pants.
Keeping in mind I had tried several pair of this size on a couple weeks ago with no luck unless I didn’t want to breath. I was also remembering I haven’t lost inches in the past few measuring sessions even though I’ve been losing pounds. I was also remembering I couldn’t fit into these particular pants even before getting pregnant with Brie – the last time I wore these pants was before all the miscarriages – that was 2010!
Lets just say my hopes were not high on being able to zip them and breath. BUT ta-da! They fit, they zip, and I can breath normally. They are a tad snug, but not in a horribly uncomfortable way at all. I quickly ran to my hubs to show off. He was a good sport and congratulated me (and even threw in a ‘your butt is small’ squee). It’s fun getting more of my closet back, it’s almost like new clothes.
