Goal Jeans

I went a little off topic last post about jeans.  Again, I LOVE jeans and shoes, but I'm limited on shoes because I'm a baby when it comes to the pain of heels.  Since school/work is fast approaching, I decided to go through all of my clothing to see what fits and what doesn't.  I have a wide range of sizes in my closet and I really wanted to get a new work wardrobe at the beginning of this year, but I think I need to wait until I get to my goal.  New clothes are my motivation to get there.

I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I have more options this year with being able to wear almost everything in my closet.  I definitely need more tops, but I can do ok with my current pant selection.  In terms of work pants, I have sizes ranging from size 8 to size 14.  I got rid of the 14's because they are way too big.  The 12's are a little loose, but I can make them work for a little while longer.  10's work, but 1 pair is too snug to pull off all day and not have the lovely muffin top.  I can get a couple pairs of 8's on, but WAY too tight so i need to lose about 10 or 15 lbs to fit those .  So I would say I'm officially a size 10.  Not too shabby knowing I was about 220ish 5 1/2 months ago.

Now for jeans, which did you know I LOVE?  I can wear all of them except for 3 pairs.  Those 3 are my jeans that I discussed in my last post from my partying, no eating, drinking, working out and dancing days.  While I can't go back to those days, I can hopefully go back to those jeans.  One pair is a size 28 and the other two are size 30's.  I tried them on for shits and giggles.  I knew that I wouldn't be able to wear them and figured they would only come up to my knees.  Well, I could actually get one pair up and on my lower butt.  Buttoning and zipping is still about 5 inches of belly/butt/back fat away, but there has been progress.  So, they are my newest non-weight goal.  I would like to fit them by the time I go to Austin for a special someone's bachelorette weekend!  Here they are...

Me wearing the jeans...


  1. I have confidence that you can hit your goal!

    I totally could have taken those 14s off your hands. I'm between a 12 and 14 right now.

  2. Shopping gets much more expensive the thinner you get :) That's freaking fabulous that you are in a 10, girl your baby is still YOUNG! All your hard work is paying off and I'm sure those jeans will be on you and fabulous in no time!
