The Jeans from 6 years ago finally fit!!

So I've been on Myfitnesspal for just about 1 year now, but I've been no stranger to dieting and going up and down in weight... I've always been the biggest of the 3 sisters and struggled with being much bigger than my friends most of my life too. Looking back, I looked fantastic in high school, but I wasn't as tiny as my friends so it always bothered me. I was a chubby girl from about 4th-8th grade and finally slimmed up in high school, but never felt too happy with my body.

Anyways, when I got to college, I was a bit bigger and the lack of sports had led to me start to gain weight. Before I gained the Freshman 15, my college roommate in the dorms and I decided to try out weight watchers and actually lost weight rather than gaining it. I was the smallest I'd ever been in a long time and I was so happy! I celebrated by buying the most expensive pair of jeans I'd ever owned! I loved them! But motivation slowly faded and I gained too much weight back. When they stopped fitting, I hid them in the bottom of the closet and didn't touch them.

That was when I was just barely 19. I remember wearing them not long after my 19th birthday, but not much longer after that. Anyways, since then, I've gone up and down, and every time I was going in the down direction, I would aim to fit in them again. But I never made it. Not until now!

Friday night, about 6 years later, I thought I'd try them on, not expecting to be able to button them up comfortably, but to my surprise, they zipped right up and I didn't have a huge muffin top hanging over them! They fit and they looked good!


I can't even tell you how great this feels! Maybe it's that I'm more mature this time around or maybe I'm just sick of playing this yo-yo game, but this time at weight loss has been different. I've really changed my lifestyle! I enjoy healthy eating and cooking and I feel fantastic after a great burn at the gym. Rather than giving up after reaching a plateau, I've just continued to log, eat right and stay active and it has truly paid off. I feel small!

I would like to drop another dress size and 10 more lbs and be the smallest I can ever remember, but if it doesn't ever happen, I won't be too upset. I've done a great job and I look the best I have in years! :)

    My sister-in-law (the person who got me on this site) says she will stop dieting when she can fit into her goal jeans. She calls them her "spectacular *kitten* jeans." Love it!

    Good luck!
