October 26th, 2016 Those Jeans

October 26th, 2016 Those Jeans

Sorting through my clothes, I ran across a bag marked for donation. I knew I had put some jeans in there--possibly some I could now wear. I know there are some old Levi's 501's in there somewhere. I ended up coming across a pair of jeans gifted to me six years ago by a fellow weight loss blogger. I remember receiving this very generous package of clothing--all in sizes that worked as I approached 230 pounds all those years ago--and I remember coming across a pair of jeans on the bottom of the box that I just knew, had to be a mistake. A size 32 waist pair of Lucky Jeans. Forget it, I thought back then--even at my healthiest weight, there's no way those will ever fit.

I picked them up this morning and thought...Hmm...I wonder...

And they fit perfectly.

This wasn't a goal of mine at all. It's not like I was waiting for the day I could get into them--it just happened, and it was very nice. I've never worn Lucky jeans before--and my goodness, they're comfy!

Rather than posting a picture of these on my rear-end--I thought a comparison photo with my old size 64's might be a little more tasteful.

Today was a busy--but productive day. I'm dropping in bed within minutes. I broke my streak on 7 hours sleep last night, and that wasn't good. And tonight I'm struggling to make it. I'm actually setting my alarm later in the morning to compensate, and that's not a habit I need to start.

It's a work in progress, obviously.

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained abstinent from refined sugar, I exceeded my daily water goal, I worked out tonight at the gym and I stayed well connected with solid support.

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. Wow! Size 32! that's an awesome comparison! Do you remember what size you were at 235 & 250?


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
