We've nearly all done it. Seen an irresistible item of clothing marked down in the
sale and thought 'I must have it'. The only problem is it's a trifle too small. So
we breath in, pull the zip and pledge to loose a couple of pounds. These jeans
fit exactly in that category. I got them in T K Maxx about four years ago, seduced
by the designer lable. They fitted, just about, and I wore them a handful of times.
Then they got too tight (ie I got too big) but I hadn't the heart to put them in the
bag for the charity shop because they were good as new.
Well, the good news is I can almost fit into them again. I was offered the opportunity
to act as guinea pig for a local gym and write about my experience. I had never set
foot in a gym before and didn't relish the prospect of working out but did want to
loose some weight as summer (and a college reunion) approaches. So, I've been going
to the gym for the past six weeks, have been following a healthy diet, and taking Fudge
for extra walks. As I begin to see results, I've set these jeans as my goal - I want to
be able to fit into them for my summer holidays.
