I Bought The Jeans!

I know my faithful blog readers know that I have been wanting to buy some skinny jeans for a while but because of the “junk in the trunk” never did. Ok just so you guys know that I have finally bought those skinny jeans and I am actually wearing them now! I bought them on major sale months ago while traveling but was afraid to wear them because I felt uncomfortable in them so I had them in my closet hiding out. I was just not used to wearing jeans but I have gotten used to them now. Nor was I used to the low rise aspect. I LOVE THEM!!!! I actually bought the ones I blogged about before, you know the dream jeans? (pictured above) I got those exact ones!

So I decided it was time for the Shrinking Pastor update to let you know where I am at. I have lost…….drum roll please……… 80 lbs over the course of this last year. Yep that is shocking to me too! I cannot believe it. I am in a sort of denial about it all to be honest. I keep wanting to pick up a different size and then realize that I can wear the clothes size on the “other end ” of the rack now. It is just a tad bit weird to be honest for some reason and I don’t really know why because I was in a smaller size before the hormones freaked out on me. I guess I just at times felt hopeless that I would never get the weight off. You know, even though it has taken me a year to lose the weight, it took me many years to figure out what was wrong and a plethora of doctors at that. It has definitely not been an easy journey but it is one chocked full of valuable lessons for me. I will blog about those lessons tomorrow.

Well thank you all for just being so encouraging and so amazing. I really feel blessed to have such great people in my life like all of you.

Ahhhhh………. I bought the jeans! Happy times!
