Chasing my Fit: NSV’s are the best!

8 weeksMajor NSV (non-scale victory) this week...back into my high school jeans.  Ok ok's the "fat" pair but hey!  It's a start!  The last time I wore them was in high school and then again briefly in 2002 (the major clubbing year).  They were a pretty big deal to me though.  I never believed that I would fit something that was before the 4 kidlets again purely due to my hips now.  It's good to know that my body does stand a chance at going back or even being better!

I must say this's so weird when you think about sizes.  I was laying in bed last night and saw this on FightForYourFit's Instagram.  My husband is amazed with how women's, misses', junior's and general sizing are all different for women.  Men have it so easy.  A tape measure around the waist and boom...they are good anywhere they go!  I'm so envious.20131120-085534.jpg
