So a week after my bypass (8/2009) I was going to an auction with my Mom and stopped at a flea market where I looked down and picked up a pair of jeans. (Calvin Klien size 11). I knew my idea was an 8-10, but I didn't know 11 was a junior size. You all know when you have shopped in the plus sizes for so long I had no idea about pettites and junior sizes! LOL.
Anyway, this weekend I came across those jeans and guess what..... not only could I pull them on, I could button and snap them. Now they are not a good cut for me and they will go to Goodwill, but I MADE IT INTO MY GOAL JEANS! A picture to come later!
Sometimes it is not about the scale and that is important to remember. I weigh every morning as a way to "check" myself, but the scale has been going in the right direction every slowly!
I may have had a few extra potholes along the way, but the journey has been good!
