Today I am wearing a pair of jeans I bought a year ago. I bought them based on the waste size of the khakis I normally wear. My khakis have the "comfort fit waste" which allows them to expand to fit more loosely. I bought jeans in the same waist size and could not even come close to fastening them around my waist. I realized that even if I could get them fastened I would not be able to wear them for any amount of time comfortably. I disgustedly threw them in my bottom drawer and figured I would end up tossing them with old clothes the next time I cleaned out my closet.
Today I had a good weigh in and was looking in my dresser for a pair of sweats for my walk. I saw the jeans and on a whim I put them on. Not only do they fit but they fit fairly comfortably. I might wear them for a week just because I can.
To a lot of you that are further along this might seem like small potatoes but for me it is a pretty big deal.
Congrats! And I know what you mean. I started LC when my "fat jeans" got too tight. Because of my body type and that I am short..I'm stuck wearing a particular brand and they cost $50 or $30 on sale. I wasn't about to buy an even fatter pair. So I mostly wore Adidas pants for about a year. After a few weeks on LC they fit again!
