I walk into the "Plus Size" store today to try on some jeans.
I want to see how my body is looking in clothes that are not in my own wardrobe - clothes in which I am not used to seeing myself. So, I grab a pair of jeans in the size I've been wearing for a while now. I try them on.
Well, isn't that nice.
I have also grabbed a pair of jeans that are the next size down. Should I risk trying them on? Yeah.
"I'm probably not going to be able to zip these up, but I should at least I should be able to get them on my body," I think to myself, knowing that I'll be very pleased if I can just get them up over my hips.
On they go.
And surprise, surprise..."zzzzzzzzzip" goes the zipper.
Yes - there's an "AND" - AND I am able to button them up!
Making responsible food choices + daily exercise = skinnier jeans
