Fresh starts and desceptive jeans

Hey there! It's been a little while since I've checked in around sorry. Last week was a doozy of a busy week around our house.

I wish I could come and say how amazingly awesome I was doing, watching my calories and getting tons of exercise, but I SO can't. I've been eating AWFUL (we were busy last week, remember? That equals me not cooking and ordering too much pizza, sadly!) and I didn't work out ONE time last week! Yikes.

The good news is that my weight is miraculously holding steady...PHEW. I know that it won't hold firm for long though, so I stocked up the fridge and I'm ready to crack down again starting tomorrow.

Oh, and here is something fun for you. I've been trying jeans on for weeks. Literally weeks. Maybe months. I have always been a hard person to find jeans for. My hips and hiney are MUCH bigger than my waist so the waist is always too big. Always. It is so frustrating. Oh, and I'm short so I have to have petite sizing.

ANYWAY, today I tried Old Navy for jeans for the first time (ever, I think) and I discovered something very fun there...they totally have vanity sizing! Seriously, if you're having a down day head to the Old Navy, grab the size you usually wear and the next size down and I betcha you can wear the smaller size. FUN!

Here's to a fresh week, a fresh month, and a fresh start!!


  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I've been wearing Old Navy jeans since I got out of the plus size store. I went to the mall this past week to try on jeans and left in tears. I knew I must have gained weight because there wasn't a pair there in my size that fit me. Now I know it is because Old Navy had been tricking me all this time. At least it isn't my body growing, though, right?

    I'm so stinkin' proud of you! Glad you are back on track tomorrow!

  2. I LOVE Old Navy! I really just discovered them. I'm not sure I can wear the jeans yet but I bought two longsleeve t-shirts a couple of weeks ago and they are wonderful.
