madaboutmoose's Journal, 18 March 2009

Today I wore a pair of black jeans to work. You know how black jeans always seem to run smaller than blue jeans? Well maybe that's just me but in my experience for some crazy reason they always feel just a tad tighter. Well anyway, I put on my size 18's even though I can fit into most of my 16's. I spent all day pulling up my britches!!! LOL!! So, happily when I got home I placed them reverently in my container of pants that are both too small and too large for me!!! It's funny, no one at work has said a thing about me losing weight. Maybe that is really a compliment ... meaning they see me more as a person than as a person of a certain size. Still ... the black jeans made my day!!

You are so right, black jeans do run smaller. I have noticed people are funny about commenting on weight loss. A lot of times it is envy unfortunately. I always notice weight loss, I know what an accomplishment it is and I always comment. I am not envious, I feel happy for them. Keep up the great work. :-)

Thanks for confirming my black jean theory!!! I'm okay with others not commenting. I remember a time, let's see about 20 years ago, that it actually bothered me when people told me I looked good when I lost weight. I was younger and not nearly as secure in myself then. Now, I am able to compliment myself!!! Not conceit mind you, but truly appreciating my own self. I like now better (~; Much, much better. Not that I don't have my down times, I do. But I seem to recoup from them quicker and am much kinder to myself. Wish it didn't take me so long to learn!! I think I better go tend to the dogs ... they are barking up a storm!!!
