I was putting laundry away yesterday (because laundry IS my life -- or so it seems) and at the top of my pants drawer was a pair of pre pregnancy pants -- not my skinny jeans (for me at my smallest size) -- but still skinnier pants that anything I'm wearing now (which are my pregnancy clothes -- still). Well I figured what the heck and I tried them on.
Okay, they were a little tight and I had to suck it in to zip them up. But they zipped, I could breathe, and I could sit and walk in them. As it's summer and wicked hot in my apartment I took them off in favor of the shorts I was wearing already. But it was a shining glory of a moment. Before I got "back on the wagon" I couldn't get them over my hips and now after three weeks of focusing on a healthier lifestyle THEY FIT. I've dropped a pants size along with TEN POUNDS! 10.7lbs to be exact!
I already had a fire lit under me and that moment was like gasoline! Skinny jeans here I come.
