These jeans stay on when I close my eyes



So how come, if I've lost 26.2 lbs, these damn jeans still fit? They should be freakin' falling off by now.

This is the trend of my thought today, as the jeans I've had for more than a year are steadfastly refusing to slide off my hips and embarrass me.

Two thoughts: One, they were a hell of a lot tighter (and shorter) the last time I wore them, and today I was able to get them on without actually unbuttoning or unzipping them. And the hems are dragging near the ground. So that's something.

(I am trying very hard not to reflect on the fact that that was how they fit when I bought them, which means that I gained 25 lbs or so in the last year. Gah!)

And two, percentages. This particular 26.2 lbs, I would do well to bear in mind, is very different from the 26.2 lbs at the end of the diet. So far, I've gone from "very fat" to "still fat but not quite as fat". The next 26.2 lbs will take me from "still fat" to "rather heavy".

The one after that will take me from "rather heavy" to "a fine big gal" and the final one will get me from "big gal" to "not one bit fat at all by anyone's standards except Hollywood's."

Every tenth of a pound is a victory. These jeans will be too big for me. One of these days.
