Ok, so while this weight loss journey is mostly about being healthy and getting fit, let’s face it…I also want to look good and like what I see in the mirror! I woke up this morning thinking I wanted to wear jeans to the ZBB concert tonight since it was going to be a little cooler. All I had were the ones I wore last winter that are now way too big…not going to work. So, I headed out on a search for new jeans. Now, most women can tell you, jeans shopping is challenging at best, and can be downright hard on the ego, but I was doing it anyway.
Tried on a bunch of different brands and different sizes until I found the right size (smaller than I thought it would be), then I started trying different styles in that size. I was pleasantly surprised I had so many choices and that they looked ok, but nothing was wowing me. Bootleg looked ok, straight leg too. Then I tried skinny jeans and looked in the mirror. The women in the dressing rooms on either side of me must have thought I was nuts, because I started laughing and said (rather loudly) “Holy shit! all that walking is giving me great legs!” Skinny jeans were the winner.
Went next door when I got home to have my neighbor take a pic of me wearing the jeans, and was told the jeans might actually be a little loose…more happy laughter from me. So anyway, here’s the jeans pic, and closeup of my walking strong calves. Not quite to my halfway point, but it’s fun to look in the mirror and like what I see, especially in jeans. Arms need work but legs are looking good.
I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating… I’m loving this journey!
