I went line dancing Saturday night in my size 22 jeans. I’ve been able to wear size 20’s for a couple weeks now, but I could still wear my 22’s if I was in a pinch.
But, I realized Saturday that I really can’t dance in my 22’s anymore. I suppose I can still wear them around the house but if I am going to do any activity at all, then I can’t wear them anymore.
It was embarrassing to have to pull them up every 16 counts or so. I also couldn’t do anything super fun, like extra spins, for fear of my pants falling down mid-spin. It took some of the fun out of the evening actually.
I suppose I could just use one my belts that I hate. But, I also know my size 22 jeans are baggy to the point they no longer do positive things for my butt. (Without that, what’s the point in wearing jeans at all.)
So, why am I having such a hard time letting them go? Is it a fear of needing them again? Maybe just doubt and disbelief?
