With working from home due to COVID-19, I wasn't in a hurry to replace my baggy jeans. But eventually it got to the point where they would slide down and trip me up. Of course, the pandemic has made clothes shopping difficult. Usually the fitting rooms are closed so you can't try things on. So I made a guess at my size and bought some jeans. They seemed a little roomy, but I figured they would be handy for manual stuff like gardening or carpentry (I'm fixing up my cottage), so I didn't return them. A few weeks later I bought the next size down. They still seemed slightly roomy, but I kept them for the same reason. A few weeks after that, I bought the next next size down. They looked way too small, but I tried them on and they were a perfect fit!
Every time I see those jeans, I think how did some kid's jeans end up in my house? And then I realise they're my jeans.

But what does NSV mean?

What an amazing feeling that must be. Congratulations. I have my first appointment with a weight loss surgeon in two days. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I am happy for you.
I bought one pair at a time when I went down a size. But when I got to size 12, I felt like that was as small as I would ever be and bought quite a few pairs in size 12.
I was wrong and kept getting smaller. I ended up at my lowest in size 0. After I had a bounceback regain I stayed in size 4 for the next ten years.
