And it's not a bad one. I think my underwear is too big now. I put on a new pair this morning, one that I had bought recently because a few others were getting worn out. Same brand, same size, and there's some bagginess going on.
What gets me is that I've always worn this size since I was like 15 years old. When I started to gain some weight, it went to my gut and thighs, not my butt so I never really had a problem with being able to grab the same size underwear when I needed to. Now it looks like I'll need to go down a size.
This comes after realizing I could pull off the jeans I had on yesterday without unbottoning them. That's the third pair of jeans in the past few months that have officially crossed into the too big category. And a couple shirts I haven't worn in a while because of not fitting well in the stomach area now fit. I'm going to have to go through my shorts pretty soon. I know there's one pair in there that I haven't worn but a couple times because of being too snug.
I'm surprised 12 pounds can even make that big of a difference.
I think that means a trip to the store is in order. Perhaps some new designer jeans or something really pretty and sparkly? I know what I could fit you in and they would be fabulous, but you are a bit far for me to help. Enjoy you new body and CONGRATULATIONS!
