Operation Skinny Jeans: Weigh In Wednesday 4-3

Weigh In Wednesday 4-3

So this is my first "Weigh In" of "No Weigh April!" Instead I am gonna chat about my Non Scale Victories :D

This week, my NSV goal was to buy a new pair of jeans! I have been eyeballing some skinnies from Forever 21, but the largest size they sell are 20's. As you know, all women's sizes are different, so I was nervous to walk out of there defeated and feeling fat. But this weekend I went in and faced my fear, and I was pleasantly surprised! This pair of size 20 skinnies zipped up BEAUTIFULLY! That marks another size officially obliterated!

Check out these babies!


I am so sorry it is so blurry! The weather was not cooperating so we had to turn the flash off.

I love how they fit and I think they are really cute! I got the "short" length, but I still had to roll them up lol #shortpeopleproblems.

Even tho I am not weighing in this month, I am still linking up with Weigh in Wednesday with Alex and Erin!

  7. Look at how cute you are in those jeans!!! BTW, I had NO idea that F21 had any sizes larger than 2 so maybe I'll have to go in there and see if there are any for a 41year old (shhhh!), lol ;) Great job, Jess! PS: New Follower!

  8. I am visiting from NSV's link-up! Going down a size is AMAZING!! I didn't know forever 21 had plus sizes, I never go in there because I figure my pinky toe will not fit into anything!! Those jeans are super cute on you btw and those shoes are to die for!! Keep up the good work!!

    1. First off, great name ;)

      I would LOVE for you to link up! The WIW girls are awesome, and one of the hosts is a sponsor of mine! For the monday link up, just make some goals and link it up lol! It's a great way to stay accountable, and NSV is a fun on too :D

      How do I stay motivated- good question. I try to look at how far I have come and how good I feel opposed to how far I have to go. I might have to write a post on this now :D
      For lunch- I actually eat a dinner sized lunch. I feel like it helps me get through the day with less hunger, and so I eat a small dinner. So a typical lunch will be Fish tacos, Chicken fajitas, turkey kielbasa and broccoli, etc. I try to have a protein, veggie and complex carb for lunch.
      How did I start- There is a little more about that if you read my about me (by clicking on the big pic of me on the right), but mostly I have always wanted to not be fat anymore. I finally took the last first step my joining weight watchers. It taught me a lot about food, but I disagree that eating or drinking something with chemicals (like diet coke over coke) is better for me, (as well as a few things) so I kicked it to the curb and now I try to eat as clean as possible :D

      If you have any more, I would love for you to email me :D

  15. That's a really good idea about not weighing in this month. Congrats on the new jeans! It's such a nice feeling to be able to walk out of a store with bags that couldn't before.
