New jeans

September 6, 2008 at 11:48 am 3 comments

It is feeling more like October than September here in St. Louis.  Yesterday when I got up, Eric told me that it was rather chilly out and I should wear pants.  I went through my closet and pulled out a bunch of pants to try on.  I had several pairs that fit, at least enough to stay up on my ass, but most of them were horribly out of style (high waisted mom jeans…ugh the 90s LOL).  I’ve been trying to hold out until my birthday to buy clothes because I’ll have money to spend on myself then.  I finally told Eric that I just had to go ahead and buy myself one pair of jeans that fit me.  I’ll wear them everyday if I have to.  LOL

I’m trying to buy a few things here and there, as cheaply as possible because I’m just not getting enough wear out of them to justify spending a lot.  Plus I’m a cheapskate.  We were at Wal-Mart and I found some jeans on the clearance rack.  I took two pairs into the dressing room, praying one or the other would fit.  The jeans I’ve been wearing are 22 and 24, but they are old so I didn’t know if they were just baggy because of being worn so much or what.  I tried on the first pair and they fit.  I couldn’t believe it because I took them in just to see how far I was from getting into them.  Size 20!  Woohoo!!!  I was so damn excited.  I also bought a tshirt that was on clearance.  It is a more fitted style than I usually wear, but it looked ok.  I wish my big upper stomach would shrink some more already.  LOL

The scale is wreaking havoc on my emotions lately.  I haven’t really lost anything all week.  I’m bouncing between about 254.4 and 255.6 or so.  I have yet to see anything under 254.0.  Blah.  I’m pretty sure it is because my exercise routine has been totally messed up for the last two weeks.  School started for me and I’m trying to fit it all in right now.  Four online classes, work, the kids and all their school stuff…life is just crazy right now.  I’m trying to get ahead in my hardest class, which is going pretty well.  My next assignment is due 9/15, but I thought it was due on 9/8 so I’m almost finished.  That will put me quite ahead in that class.  I had planned to walk at work today, but I forgot my shoes and I’m wearing flip flops today.  I think I’ll get Eric to do Walk Away the Pounds with me tonight.

I’m finally getting more comments about my weight loss.  Our neighbor commented on it yesterday.  It boosts my ego everytime.  🙂

Eric had his EEG the other day.  We haven’t heard anything about it though.  Our primary doctor told me to call on Monday because it really shouldn’t take this long for him to read it and get back to us.  I’ll call then.  The hospital where he had it is just…incompetent so I’m really not surprised.

    Awesome when you slip on a new smaller size, right? You’re doin’ FAB — keep it up. Thanks for updating us about your DH. Don’t let the stress of a NEW school year schedule get to you — you’ll get it figured out 😉

    Sounds like a busy full life to me. Congrats on the 20. Hope the doc comes back with good news.

    Wow what wonderful news. You know a new size 20 jean is really like a size 18 dress pants because jeans always run so much smaller, unless they are the stretch kind. I give you alot of credit for taking those classes but do it while you are young and are motivated because as you get older you just don’t want to learn anything new. You really have a hectic schedule, which is a good thing because it will keep you occupied with very little time to think about eating. Take care. Barbara
