But its funny because when I was almost 300 lbs, they were totally unattainable. Hence the name, really. Not only do they not really make flattering skinny jeans in a size 26, I didn't FEEL good in skinny jeans as a size 26.
It wasn't until I was a size 22 that I felt good in skinny jeans. These were my first pair.
I felt like a million bucks in those jeans. They were everything I had worked my ass off for. In this picture, I felt PROUD.
My 2nd pair were some 20's from Forever 21. Oh man was I stoked to be in Forever 21 jeans.
Again- I FELT great. For me, the mission to skinny jeans hasn't been one of vanity, entirely. I mean of course I want to look good in cute clothes, but most importantly I want to FEEL good in cute clothes.
My mission has literally been to feel good in skinny jeans, but I think we are all on a mission to feel good in OUR skinny jeans.
I feel awesome in my skinny jeans. Here is today- Size 16 from Old Navy.
I feel amazing today. Sure my hair is second day, and I have a ways to go, but I FEEL amazing today.
This journey has never been about perfection. My journey has not been a straight line. I have lost and gained and quit and started and hated and loved. But in the end, I look at myself and I am proud. I am proud that I didn't give up on myself. I am proud of my BODY for the amazing things its done! 60 lbs is a LOT of lbs! Obviously I am not done, but I AM happy.
