It’s no secret that I’ve been “shrinking”.
The last time I bought a pair of new skinny jeans, was back in November.
Just before Thanksgiving. Was excited because I was back down to a size 6.
…at least in American Eagle Outfitter jeans.
Then, I kid you not…
a couple of weeks later, I noticed how loosely they were fitting on me.
I thought to myself, “You’ve got to be kidding me. I cannot be shrinking THAT fast.”
Yeah… $50 not-so-skinny jeans gone to waste.
But I still use them. I’m just always pulling them up…and sometimes even wear a belt.
Which is why I’ve decided I’m not going to buy any new jeans until I’m done shrinking.
But I need new jeans.
And that’s when the lightbulb went off in my head.
I had saved all my old favorite jeans from like 6 years ago.
…and they were packed away in storage.
So a couple of days ago, I made my husband climb up into the attic and bring ’em down.
Both jeans actually fit a little loose, too. Especially at the waist.
But it’s awesome that I can fit into them again!!!
And just so you don’t think I’m fibbing about the weight loss, I do have some pics of me in the jeans I wore when I was at my heaviest.
This was taken in the Summer of 2010.
And no this was not photoshop’ed.
Now check this out…
Me wearing the same pair of jeans now.
This is my version of the “boyfriend” jean…
It still amazes me at how much I’ve lost/toned up in the past 6 months.
It is possible. You have no idea how many times I felt discouraged because I wasn’t seeing results right away.
But hard work pays off.
The proof is in them jeans.
