I haven’t been able to fit into any pre-pregnancy pants except those that have elastic waistbands.
Brian and I started working out at the gym a couple of weeks ago and trying to eat more healthily.
Because Alex decided to puke on me the other night, my fave black pants, were in the wash and out of commission.
It came time to get ready for church and I realized I had no pants options left. I was scared. I went to try on my “fat” jeans. The jeans that I couldn’t pull up past my thighs when I tried them on last.
I was fearful. I shut myself into my closet and put one foot in. Then the other foot and pulled, praying for a miracle. Let these jeans please fit me Lord!
They fit, praise God!
Then came time to pull up the zipper. With a lot of hard work, I got it closed. I realized that maybe, if I put on my tummy shaper undergarment, it would work better to my advantage. I took off the jeans and poured myself into the black, tight spandex. I put the jeans back on and the zipping was a much easier task. Then I went to walk and I looked kind of like a penguin. I needed to do the sit test. I sat on the side of the bed and decided to never try that again.
I took the jeans off, peeled off my tummy shaper and was quite discouraged.
Then, a glimmer of hope. I had an idea and it was brilliant…..
I put on a pair of Brian’s jeans and was pleasantly surprised that they fit and didn’t look to bad either.
So not only was I wearing my husband’s Eagles shirt (the Eagles that let us down in the NFC Championship game. They came so very close.) but also his jeans.
I told him good news, I can fit in my jeans. Bad news, I can’t sit down in them. Good news, your jeans fit me. To which he replied, “YOU’RE WEARING MY JEANS!”
Sharing is caring right 🙂
Oh and I got several compliments from friends at church on my “new” jeans!
Now I just have to keep up the good work, I’ll be back in MY jeans before I know it. Until then, I know I have a great alternative!
