Incase you didn’t know I just had baby #5 in June of this year.I lost about 20ish pounds during this pregnancy. I didn’t try to loose the weight, it just kept coming off. But since I was a big girl to begin with, my dr wasn’t concerned. (You can read more about this on my pregnancy blog)
A little over a year ago we had packed up our house and moved from NC to TX. (You can read about that journey here) During that time I had started to loose weight, this was probably due to stress and as soon as you walked outside you started sweating! So in about 1 years time I have probably lost about 50 pounds!
So as I was cleaning out my clothes in our closet I stumbled upon a pair of jeans that I was sure that I got rid of a long time ago. I took them off the hanger and looked them over a few times wondering if I could even fit in them. I have had these jeans since forever it seems like but I do remember that I haven’t been able to wear them since my first daughter was born in 2008. I figured if I did get them on I wouldn’t be able to button or zip them.
Much to my surprise I could do both! I was super excited that I did a little dance in front of the mirror!
These are 2 pictures with me wearing them just yesterday!
I was about a size 24ish this time last year and these jeans are a size 20! 4 pant sizes in 12 months with a pregnancy mixed in there…..that’s crazy to me!
It is also a great start to me exercising and loosing more weight. I honestly don’t care about the number size of my pants but it just became even more real to me how much weight I have lost.
The jeans are still a little tight and I have a slight muffin top, but I know that once I am cleared from the dr I am sure to work my butt off to get these jeans to where they are too big for me 🙂
