My eyesight is going...and apparently so is my waistline

Tri_DadTri_Dad Posts: 1,465Member Posts: 1,465Member
So, I've been at it a month and have gotten rid of 35 pounds of me. When I started this I could barely get myself into my size 48 waist. After losing 20lbs I dug through the closet to find a pair of 46 waist jeans to give it a shot. Alas couldnt quite get them buttoned. Been trying on those same darn 46 waist jeans a couple of times a week for the last few weeks and while I finally managed to get into them they were super tight. My 48's a sooooo big on me. So this morning I was thinking...why after losing 35 pound am I still struggling to get into a 46 when the 48's are soooo big. So I gave it another shot. Good news! they fit great and are super comfortable. When I took them off I checked the tag to see if I had gotten them at Old Navy and holy cow my eyes must be going because they are 44's! No wonder it took so long to get into those lol and no wonder my 48's are so big lol. Feelin' real good about being 4-5 inches smaller at the middle :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:
