Its foot puttin’ down time!
I’ve owned a particular pair of jeans, my ‘dark wash “evening” jeans’, as I dubbed them. From the first day I bought them they were a little snug. I was told they would stretch with wear and I believed it. Why not? I had other jeans that did just that.
But after 7 years, no matter how many times I wore them, they never stretched to fit. Each time I put them on, they were so tight, they made me feel I needed to lose weight. They were so tight, It hurt to eat. They were so stinking tight, I couldn’t sit down without them cutting into my stomach.
I would put them away, workout for a few months, get myself in better shape; put them on and have them still be too tight. What a disappointment!
So after changing the way I ate, making very healthy choices, working out regularly and slimming down once again, I wore them to work in June. and they about killed me!
That’s when it hit me. Why in the world would I continue to wear a pair of jeans that always make me feel like I need to lose weight?!?? Like I'm never going to be the right size to have them fit perfectly. Why subject myself to serious mental torment for 7 long years over a pair of silly jeans??!
So on this day, Friday July 20th, 2012, I declare I am officially retiring my Joe’s jeans. That I am a perfectly healthy size, that I don’t need to lose weight or believe I need to in order to fit into an ill fitting pair of jeans!
THERE, I SAID IT!! They’re an ill fitting pair of jeans!
whew! that felt good to say!!
If you have a similar pair of pants that always leaves you unhappy, feel free to make your declaration as well. Let’s not let 1 pair of pants stand in the way of feeling beautiful as we are right now.
Have a lovely weekend, my friends.
