OMG OMG OMG ~ I'm literally freaking out!

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Hello Dear Spark Friends,

The most exciting thing happened yesterday and I just have to share it with you. My DH I am sure is getting sick of all the whooping around the house. Something happened that just a few short years ago I NEVER thought would be possible. My DH had to go to the wood supply store (he is working on a BIG project) and asked if I wanted to go along. It is a 2 hour drive one way and I thought I should go and keep him company. He always lets me bring my laptop and the mobile internet so the time flies. On the way home, we stopped at the Costco Superstore (about 5 times bigger than our local Costco) to get some supplies. I noticed that they had 550 Levis in stock so thought I would get a few pairs... You can't try them on in the store so I usually buy 2 sizes and then return one of them. I have been wearing size 6 (that is a miracle let me tell you) but since taking the spinning class (yes... the one taught by the "She Devil" herself) for the past couple of weeks my jeans were feeling just a little sloppy. The scale hasn't moved so I'm thinking maybe they are just a little stretched out somehow? Anyway, I decide to get a size 6 and a size 4. Who knows...maybe the size 4 will fit and if not, it will be an incentive just waiting for me... right? After we got home, I tried on the size 4 jeans and THEY FREAKING FIT! I was doing the happy dance and wondering if anyone would think it was strange if I wore them and left the tags on? LOL I made my DH take a few photos as proof. I have never in my adult life worn a size 4. Even when I weighed less than I do now I wore a larger size. Please don't tell me they are making clothes bigger than they used to. I DON'T want to hear that. I'm going with the reality of today! Yippeee and Hip Hip Hooray!

Big Big Hugs to you all,
Rhonda

PS - I'm still wearing them today ~ but I'm scared to wash them... what if they shrink? Aaaarrrggghhh

    Where does one find a "she-devil" all I want is to finally get into a size 8, unfortunately that means dropping TWO pant sizes.

    Good for you! My jeans are size 4 and I could barely get them zipped/buttoned yesterday. And then there's this big blog hanging over them. that's what I'm waiting to get into. If they're a little snug, wash them but don't dry them. That's what I do.

    I totally hate the idea of taking a spinning class but now I'm starting to wonder if I should! LOL!
    Congrats to you!

    PS. Some people might be making the clothes larger now days, but if the 6 you picked up fits like your old 6 then you truly have dropped a size and a size is a size no matter what it is arbitrarily labeled! Way to go!

    That is fantastic! Never in my life have I been smaller than a 7, and that was my freshman year of high school 15 years ago. You my dear are an inspiration!

    Go ahead and wash them--they'll still fit!

    Love it! I've got to say that you and I must be psychically bonded==a couple of days ago I went shopping for pants and tried on a 6 (never thinking they'd fit) and, well you know the rest of the story! I made DH take a picture of my backside with the size tape running down the side (just like yours) but haven't posted the picture yet!

    I'm 57, and I clearly remember wearing a size 7 when I was 21! Gotta love those SPARK RESULTS! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
