I didn't want to go down that route. I worried that if I caved and bought a size up, I'd just outgrow that and go up yet another size. But, last week I was desperate. I had a couple of events I had to go to and I just couldn't imagine squeezing into my (fat) jeans.
So, I did it. I went out and bought a pair of jeans
I'm wearing jeans that fit. There's no muffin top! They aren't stretched across my butt. They fall smoothly over my hips. I can sit down comfortably. There is loose fabric at the top of my thighs.
Best of all, I look SO much better. I look far slimmer in this larger size. I never thought I'd hit the double digits, let alone admit it...but that's where I'm at right now. Looking at myself in the mirror, I feel better about myself in these jeans than I have in ages. The best news is, when I feel better about myself I am far more motivated to push the exercise and make healthier food choices.
I'm a believer...Fight the Frump! Don't look like a sausage in your too-small jeans. Buy the size that fits you now and look forward to growing out of them, rather than buying the size you want to be and hope they will fit you better later.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!
I love you and miss you and can't wait until you're out here next!!!
