Today, just after the official end of the holiday season, I went to the store and bought these jeans
They aren't anything terribly special. They are comfortable regular jeans, but that isn't the happy part. They are TWO sizes smaller than the pants I wore into the store! I knew my pants were getting big, and I was hopeful that I would be able to get a smaller size, maybe even two, but its so exciting! Every pair of pants I took into the dressing room fit. I haven't had that experience in a long time! Like I said, I didn't buy anything special cause I'm hoping that I will drop another size or two in the next few months so I don't want to spend a bunch on clothes, but I'm just thrilled that its working! I'm wearing smaller clothes! WOOHOO! I'm a little excited, can you tell?
p.s. I've added an element to the sidebar of my blog: Happy Thoughts. When I was in College my roommates and I would come up with a happy thought at the end of each day to help us stay positive amongst all the chaos of life, so I've decided to try that again, its great fun!
