50 for 30 - Week Skinny Jeans

A few years ago, I knew I had gained weight when these size (none of your business) jeans did not fit anymore.   Stubbornly, I had worn them much longer than I should have and I had the muffin top to prove it.  One day though, I stopped wearing these jeans, and put them in the back of my closet. 

These jeans have survived numerous closet cleanings.  Every time I saw them I would think, "When I lose the weight, I'll wear those size (none of your business) jeans again!"

In October, I tried those jeans on as motivation, and I've been trying them on every time I lose five pounds.  When I got discouraged, I pictured myself looking all awesome and fantastic in my size (none of your business) jeans.

So one day last week, I tried on my size (none of your business) jeans...AND THEY FIT!

Well, let me clarify. 

If by "fit" you mean I was able to get the jeans buttoned after inhaling very deeply, and once I got the jeans buttoned I couldn't technically exhale or really move my legs because of the tightness of the jeans.....then yes, the jeans "fit."

In the brief seconds that I had the jeans on, I proudly looked at myself in the mirror. 

I had done it.

 I was wearing my size (none of your business) jeans, and one thought was running through my head. 

I don't even like these jeans!

They did not even look good.

The only thing I really liked about the jeans I had been dreaming of for three years was that they were size (none of your business), and no one else can even see the size tag!

Talk about a let down!

I'm still trying on the jeans so I can see how much I'm losing, but I've decided now that sizes in clothes is relative.  From now on, I'll just focus on what looks good on me. 

Weight Loss since last check-in-  1.9 pounds

Total Weight Loss - 23.6 pounds


  1. I totally agree.. When I go shopping I have my stopping point on jeans/pants (20) and I refuse to try on anything above that size but I will try on anything as long as it is smaller than a size 20. And if it looks good i will buy it!! Who cares what the tag says.. Bought a shirt yesterday that was a maternity shirt (and my baby is 12) because i liked the way it fit and nobody will ever know..

  2. You know it. After kids things just fit differently and different things look good on my body even though I,m getting closer to my goal. So I completely understand! keep up the good work. Also, love the pink sweater outfit in todays post
