Comfy pants


I have made a commitment to myself to no longer lounge in the house with yoga pants, sweats, or shorts with elastic.  Why?  You lose a sense of an expanding waist line with comfy pants.  I had the wrong impression that these jeans were too tight.  But they aren't.  I haven't deviated from a 16 and these jeans have a bit of stretch in them.  When you go elastic, you tend to expand in body along with the stretchy fabric.

I am also budgeting for new pairs of slacks and jeans because the waistline has grown bigger due to my weight loss and deteriorating fibers.  Buying skinny jeans for my 8-year-old girl made me realize that my pants shouldn't be too tight, but they shouldn't sag all over either. 

I weighed in at 205 lbs today.  I've lost the 4 lbs that I gained during vacation.  I've been around 205 for the last year.  I am so sick of it.  I am using the line diet graph to chart my progress.  It is a great way to have a visual of what you are losing, and how much you are projected to lose daily until you reach your goal by the goal date.

Have you fallen into the comfy pant trap?   If you are losing weight, have you invested in clothes that are more fitting to your new body?


  1. I've totally succumbed to the comfy pant trap! I got a new job, realized that the guys all wear jeans, and stopped wearing my dress pants (although, to be completely honest, my dress pants are a little more forgiving than jeans... ). It got to the point that I'm scared to try the dress pants on again for fear they won't fit, which is completely illogical considering I've lost weight AND inches. *head desk*

  2. i know, rosa! i know...
    jasmine, the 8-year-old i babysit, has a bunch of those self-help kiddie books on a range of topics.
    she loves them. (and i do too!)

  3. and yes i have invested in new clothes :)

  4. As a stay at home mom (and pregnant LOL) I live in comfy pants. After my last kiddo I reached a point where I knew I couldn't wear them all the time anymore because I wasn't seeing changes in my normal clothes.

    And its hard buying clothes to fit your body when you're in between. I never know if its worth it or not?
