Whose pants are these??

Today I was doing laundry. Okay, with 5 kids, I do laundry everyday. I grabbed the hot clean clothes out of the dryer and laid them out quickly so they wouldn't wrinkle. I pulled out a pair of jeans, held them up and thought, "Whose pants are these?" For a quick second I honestly didn't know who they belonged to. Oh my heck! These were my pants! I used to wear size 24. These were my new size 16 jeans that I've been wearing for about a month and a half. I couldn't believe it, and I laughed out loud.


  1. That is awesome, I had to stop the other day and wonder if the pants I was holding were mine or my daughters...they were my daughter's.
    now that is a good feeling.
    Congratulations. I just got into a pair of 16's two days ago.

  2. It is little things like that that make every single choice you make worth it! Can't wait till I have the same experience.

  3. That's wonderful. These are little reminders along the way that all our efforts are for not. I had a similar thing happen to me. I thought maybe the dryer shrunk my jeans.

    Thanks for your comment on my earlier post. I love the title of your blog. I feel the same way... I don't know what took me so long.

  4. How fun is that! I can't wait til the same thing happens to me... it might be awhile til I wear size 16 jeans, tho! LOL!
    Size 24 to 16... what great progress.

  5. That's pretty dang awesome on the jeans!

    And you've got me beat my one child. I have 4. As for the endless pile of laundry...time to throw in another load. Geesh.

  6. Nice! I'm still buying clothes for my new body.

  7. lol That STILL happens to me after almost 5 years!

  8. I love that! Like Roni, that still happens to me too. I'll pull a pair out and think they are my daughter's but they are mine!

    You asked if I were LDS the other day. I'm not - just non-denominational!

  9. Whooohooo what a great feeling!
