Pants

Nope, not writing about the brown ones today. Although I guess I can update you and let you know that I wore them once since then and didn't bother to color the string and it really didn't bother me at all. With that said, the real post...

Lately, my pants are too big. This is good and bad. I'm habitual and have gotten very used to my jeans, belts, etc. However, I recently opened a storage tote of jeans. These were the jeans pre Scott that I knew I couldn't wear anymore because of those darn hips. I've been able to wear the pre-scott jeans that were loose fitting but this tote had regular, fitted jeans with a normal waist. I pulled out a pair and told Ryan that it would be nothing short of a miracle if I could get them on. He cheered me on when I had my legs in them but I informed him that I had yet to get them up over my hips. However, I was amazed when I pulled them right up and didn't even have to suck in my gut to zip them up. Gasp. They fit! I've appreciated the low rise jeans that allow my flab to hang over and not get noticed. These jeans worked even though they weren't low rise. My tummy was a little more noticeable but they worked.

Today, I have on a pair of khakis in the original size. Yee-flippin-haw! Now, I just have to get used to jeans that have a waist. Yipee! Its like having new clothes again!

I hate you today. I just posted on my blog about how my jeans don't fit.

Good for you! That is such a wonderful feeling! I always feel like my mid-waist jeans fit better than the low-rise ones, I don't know! Strut your stuff!
