My first pair of Levi’s…
Wednesday, August 15, 2007
Back in May when I visited Erie, PA my sister in law found a pair of jeans for me – Levi’s – I’ve NEVER had a pair of Levi’s before. When she handed me them I realized they were a 22… I was just into a 24 at the time and in the midst of my first plateau… I hesitated to buy them but when I realized they were on sale for $9.00 I thought what the heck… got them back to the motel room and tried them on thinking they’d NEVER fit and I could get them on and do them up… sitting and breathing on the other hand were not happening.
Since my plateau I had gained 14 lbs of the 42 I had lost… and have been feeling like those jeans are NEVER going to be “big” on me. I’ve since lost 9 of those 14 lbs and decided today is a good day to try them on… my DH and I had been out to dinner and I even indulged in a dessert!!! (did an extra bit on the treadmill to counteract that but it was SO good!!!).
So… here I am feeling “full” still from dinner and thinking about trying on the jeans… so I decide what have I got to lose? I’ll just know how much farther I need to go before I can really wear them out! Shock of shocks… I can get them on… zip them up and breath…sitting not quite “comfy” yet… don’t know how long I’d actually be comfortable wearing them for but at least I know they “fit” better than they did in May!!!
