Twenty down


Written on Wednesday, October 01, 2008 by Jessica

I hit the 20-pound milestone today. I'm happy about that, but not nearly as excited as earlier this week when I discovered that I fit in jeans that are the next size down -- 18W. I wasn't expecting to fit b/c I tried them on a week earlier and was dismayed by how small they still were. I haven't fit into those jeans since before I got pregnant for Seth.

I then grabbed a pair of regular 18s and discovered I could zip them up if I lay down on the bed and sucked it in. :) That doesn't count as fitting, but it was close. So I'm THIS CLOSE to being able to shop in the section for regular sizes versus women's/plus sizes.

My reward for the next ten pounds is going to be an mp3, "Mighty Storm," by the Duhks.

    You should celebrate! Go out and eat lots and lots of ice cream!!!!

    (just kidding... really!)

    The bad news about this is you might eventually have to buy a whole new wardrobe.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Myron, what bad news? Don't you understand anything about women?? We live to buy new wardrobes! Actually, I'm half kidding about that. A shopping spree might be the definition of fabulous for most women, but it's certainly not appealing to me. So far, I'm staying clothed by accepting hand-me-downs wherever I can get them. :) And I can still wear my "fat clothes"; they're just baggy.

    I hope you don't end up like mom with 8 of the exact same piece of clothing in different sizes.

    Congratulations J!!

    Myron, like most women, we have an entire wardrobe, different sizes in our closet already. Mine ranges from size 14 to Size 6. I am doing my darnest to fit into a size 6 again, tee hee.

    Congrats J, its hard to do and you are doing it.

    Keep on trucking!
