I am still a little stunned. At 46 years old, I knew that my metabolism had slowed and it would be close to impossible to lose weight easily, if at all. I accepted that and was totally okay with my size 10 (creeping up on size 12) pants.
I started eating Primal/Paleo not all that long ago. Was it January? I started living this lifestyle to be healthier. I do feel healthier. In fact, I feel great! And without even trying, the weight started coming off. I couldn't believe it.
My jeans have been getting bigger . . . and bigger. It was becoming very obvious that my jeans just didn't fit. I finally gave in and conceded to buying one pair of jeans. I hate to shop. I headed over to Kohl's and grabbed a pile of size 8 jeans. I tried on every pair and they fit . . . sort of. They were a little loose, and I knew that by the end of the day they would "give", as jeans do, and likely be too loose.
Heading back out to the piles of jeans I searched for a size 6 short. I am only 5' 3" after all.
There was one pair.
I took them back to the fitting room.
I pulled them up.
I buttoned them.
I zipped them.
And they fit.
They actually fit!
Thank you, Freckles, for taking this photo for me. : )
Now head on over to Aliceson's, Feet Off the Table, to see what all the cool kids are wearing.
