It has been increasingly difficult to find pants to wear each morning because most of mine are too big! This is not a problem, of course. The problem is I cannot afford to buy a complete wardrobe in every size as I've mentioned before. But I also don't want to feel like a frumpy mom all the time either. Jeans that sag in the butt feel frumpy! So I decided that I would just go buy a couple pairs of cheap pants at a discount store to get me through for bit.
Currently, I have size 14s that are clearly too big and even a couple 12s that seem too big. But I also have a pair of size 12 that fits (at least in the morning) and another pair of size 12 that feels too small. I was kind of worried about trying on size 10s, though. I thought about the damage to my psyche if I was to find out that my size 12s just run big. I know that probably sounds dumb, but it's true.
Anyway, when I got to the store I decided to bite the bullet and head straight for the 10s. And do you know what? They fit! I can wear a size 10 and they are comfortable. I tried on several different styles just to make sure and yep, a size 10 it is! I'll take that NSV (non-scale victory) any day!!
Riding that high, and just for kicks, I went ahead and tried on a size 8 before I left. While I could get them on and buttoned, they were not comfy at all. Oh well. At least I know that when I reach my goal weight I'll definitely be in single digit sizes!!
I can't wait!
