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?
