How to Get Two FREE Pairs of Jeans!

November 8, 2007 · 4 comments

OK, so you can accuse me of hyping the title.  Worked though, right?

I got two new pairs of jeans this week and all I had to do to earn them was lose 23 pounds since I started my journey from fat to fit.

The first pair really are brand new.  They have been sitting on my shelf with all the stickers and labels still attached - a pair of 38×32 jeans I bought in, get this, July of 2001.  I know because when I pulled them off the shelf to try them on recently I found the receipt in the back pocket.  That means I actually boxed them up and brought them here when we moved that fall.  The previous summer I had lost a lot of weight on Atkins but by 07/01 I had gained most of it back.  And apparently I had some wishful thinking when I was out buying jeans.  I kept the faith though, and they have been sitting out in my closet ever since.

This past weekend I decided to try them on.  They fit.

Now to be honest they were tight.  Real tight.  And that was before I tried tucking a shirt in.  Yowza.  But I got them on and was able to go out in public and actually function.  Don’t worry, I had on an over-shirt so my waistline was hidden.  That’s a 51″ gut bursting out over those 38″ jeans.  Think sausage making. But damn that felt good being in my 6 year old new jeans and my belt with a couple of extra notches cut into it.

Then yesterday I was doing my wife’s laundry and noticed a pair of my old 38×32 relaxed fit Levi’s in her dirty laundry.  I tried those on and they fit good too, a smidgen looser than the other ones.  So I absconded with those too.

Two new pairs of jeans for free.  I’m beginning to like this losing weight business.

Congratulations John! Isn’t that just the best feeling, getting into something that there was no way you could squeeze into a while ago. You should be proud. Keep up the good work. My husband & I both enjoy reading about your progress.

that is a great feeling, isn’t it? Keep up the good work and next time you won’t have that “sausage” feeling. :)
