DisGrace got new jeans for Christmas and gave me her old pair. They fit pretty well, better than all of my other jeans, though they were a tad snug straight from the dryer. Today I pulled them out of the dryer and they weren't snug!! And later, I pulled them off without undoiing them!!!
The scale is not reflecting this progress, but I'm sure that's because of the muscle building I've been doing. It is more compact than fat, you know. Eventually that number has to go down, but right now I'm not stressing over it.
