(163) Shopping Success

Yesterday I mentioned that I was heading out to do some shopping for some new pants. I needed something for work, as I was constantly pulling up my pants lately. (Wow it feels good to say that!!)

So my best friend and I went shopping and I found a nice pair of Dockers and a pair of Lee's that are a size smaller than I've been wearing, and they fit great!! Except for the length, which is always a problem. I buy the "short" version and they are still too long. I have to hem pretty much anything I buy for the bottom half.

I also bought a cute pair of shoes and some new socks, and everything was on sale. Plus, I had a couple of gift cards, so that made the shopping a whole lot less painful!

While we were shopping, my friend even mentioned that she could see a difference in my face, since I started losing some weight. Woohoo!! My big square jaw doesn't need any extra padding, so that felt really good to hear.

It will be nice to be able to wear some smaller shorts this summer!


  1. Congrats on the NSV! I love Lee's Jeans. So glad you found what you needed.

  2. Congrats to you. Have you tried buying petite 5"4 and under. I find that length works best for me.

  3. I just came across your health and fitness blog. Your article about buying new clothes was especially interesting. I especially liked your comments about fitting into sizes that are smaller than what you wear now, what an accomplishment! I am adding you to my favorites.
