Towards the Goal

I like jeans; they think I'm just OK. For my entire adult life, I have had to employ the use of a safety pin with my jeans zipper, because the spandex that they put in fat women's jeans allows the fabric to stretch and the zipper to frequently come undone. I wondered if I lost weight that I would be able to give up the safety pins.

You know what happened today? I wore a pair of jeans with no safety pin. Result? No zippers came down! I am so happy - it's like I'm normal or something! Yay!

Another option, if you ever have zipper issues again (I have that problem with some of the cotton khaki shorts) is one of those wire twisty bread ties. Works like a charm. Go through the hole on the zipper,then twist the ends around your button... Just try not to "hold it" and have to get those pants down in a hurry.

Congratulations! I love the little signs of losing weight. I think they feel better than the number on the scale.

SUWEEET! Today I put on a pair of pants that I haven't worn since at least 1999...they are cute and not out of style, but I have no clue why I kept them.

You go girly!
