They Fit!!

Can I tell you a little personal story about me and pair of leopard pants? About two years ago I entered a contest giveaway by Hot Kiss. The contest was to write about my first kiss and the story Hot Kiss loved the best would win a pair of fabulous leopard print skinny pants. Afer writing my story I won! I was so excited to receive my first pair of patterned denim and to write a fun outfit post featuring the pair. I sent away my information and waited anxiously for its arrival. About 1-2 weeks later, the pants arrived. I quickly grabbed the pair and ran to my bedroom to try them on. I felt like I was really coming along in style and was going to be able post my first outfit post on my at the time newbie blog. As I slipped my legs into each leg, my face drained of all color. I couldn't believe it, I couldn't fit. I couldn't pull up the zipper or button it completely without looking like an overpacked sausage. I checked the size and they were the right size. I didn't want to send the pants back for a bigger size because I felt embarrassed. Instead, it stayed hidden in the back of my closet.

Occasionally, I tried to slip them back on and see if I could fit and I end up disappointed. Even when I was really into exercising and eating extremely healthy or a serious couch potato, they wouldn't fit. I guess the average girl would just give them away but I couldn't bring myself to donate. Slowly, I learned to stop counting calories on my iPhone app (Fitness Pal) and over pushing myself with exercise. I replaced those habits with mindful portion control, drinking water to help stay full and hydrated, and repeating this phrase in my head, 'no matter how slow I go, I'm still going faster than the butts on the couch'.

With that being said, I can happily report than I can fit in those jeans! They're a little tight around the hips but at least I can zip up, button, and move with ease. I didn't lose any significant weight nor inches nor did I try to stretch the pair out through washing and drying yet they fit. It's magic ;)
