Searching for an interesting way to spice up your wardrobe?
Here's one way--
start off about 10 pounds heaver than you'd like, then get pregnant, have a baby, don't completely lose all the weight, get pregnant again 5 months later...oh, and for the last seven or so months of that process, pack up about 90% of your wardrobe in storage boxes and shove them in the basement because you're remodeling your house. (Caution: this process could go on for years!) After all that, get sick of wearing maternity clothes (because you refuse to buy new clothes in a larger size that would actually fit you), and suck it up--go on a diet and start exercising!
Lo and behold, after about a month, dig out those boxes from the basement and *VOILA!* --you'll have a whole new wardrobe and clothes you completely forgot you had! It's like a shopping spree in your own closet!
All that to say...I got out my pre-pregnancy jeans today and they FIT!!! Granted, I still have a LONG way to go, but I was so excited to fit into my old jeans today! Ah, it's the small things in life that can bring such joy. :-)
