|janigrey||03:42 pm - tears in JC Penneys|
So I was sleeved in July -
Today I had to take a pair of jeans back to the store for my husband. While I was there I tried on a pair of size 16 shorts - thinking "they're going to be really tight - but by next summer - they'll fit and I would have scored a bargain!"
Only they weren't tight.
They fit. nicely.
I tossed on my own clothes and ran back out into the store and grabbed a two pairs of size 16 jeans.
The 'straight' pair - didn't fit of my toosh - but the 'skinny' pair did. I started to cry happy I can't believe it tears- and I looked good - ( if I do say so myself) no muffin ! I almost have my self talked into these electric pink pair of skinny jeans and then I notice... wow... I have a pronounced camel toe- and in these I have a pronounced electric pink camel toe.
So I put them back.
I ran to two other stores and tried on size 16 pants - just to be sure that this wasn't some sewing mistake.
I even found a great pair of gem tone purple jeans - sans toe, that I bought.
Doesn't it feel great to wear a size that you weren't sure you would fit into? I had RNY back a year ago and wore size 28 and today bought my first size 16 :)
