Is It The Jeans?

So, Saturday night I was at a church function in some jeans, a "stylish" t-shirt and cute cardigan from Target with some decorative trim. Towards the end of the evening a girl started gushing about how good I was looking. She was so sweet and asked if I've lost weight since I moved here.

"Well, let me tell you....." I said...

Just kidding.

I told her I've only lost a few pound since moving here, but I've lost 49 pounds over the last 2 - 2 . 5 years.

One girl said she would like to see a before picture because she couldn't imagine me at 231 pounds. The rest ooh'd and ah'd and I felt great.

What felt even better was knowing that I'm really learning to get control over my eating, finding my niche in exercise and the result is seeing the scale move downwards again.

I can't imagine the 3.5 pound loss I saw last week made a big difference... so it must've been my new cutie jeans from Kohls... LOL


  1. I love the feeling of wearing a "new" pair of jeans!! I love the fact that you bought them from Kohl's even more:)

  2. Maybe it was the jeans! Sometimes a good fit can take off ten pounds. That's a great compliment and it must have been nice to hear. Way to go! :)

  3. nah it's you.
    Im sure you looked bada** :-)
