These were my favourite cold-weather trousers, they were always tight (you can see the tension on the button and the zipper in the first photo) but I loved them anyway. The last time I wore them was for the March progress photo, then I packed them away with the rest of my winter clothes, and I remember thinking, I bet by the time autumn comes I’ll have reduced enough that these will be fitting well and I’ll be looking pretty hot in them.
Well… yesterday it was finally chilly enough to dig out the autumn clothes, so I tried the trousers on and… hahahaaa. Wow. I was actually quite freaked out, I had no idea I’d made that much progress over the summer, nor had I realised just how big I was before. Quite eye-opening, and I was pretty emotional. Nice to be crying in front of the mirror for a happy reason, though.
Also: I guess I need to go shopping.
