Thin jeans - how long have you had them?

These are 3 pairs of jeans I decluttered recently.

I decided to be brave and dedicate 20 minutes to fit on all 8 pairs of jeans that I owned.

I quickly separated them into three piles:

  1. jeans that fit and looked okay (I still have to lose 1,5 kg of my pregnancy weight)
  2. jeans that would fit once I lose that 1.5 kg (with a small frame, every kg is huge!)
  3. "thin" jeans I had no hope of ever looking good in again
This is pile 3, the pile of "thin" jeans :)

I made a note of the date I tried them on and if, in three months' time, pile 2 still doesn't fit, out they go.

How long do you give yourself to get back into your "thin" jeans?

Great question! With my first baby, I was 19 and I was back in my jeans the next day.

With my second, I was 21 and it took a couple of weeks to get back in my jeans.

With the third, I was 28 and never got back in those jeans. Never. By the time he was 6 months old, he had put on 20 more pounds and so had I... beyond the pregnancy weight.

With the last, I was 31. I got into the jeans from #3 within a day... but until recently I wasnt close to getting into anything else... and she is now 7.

I think it has a lot to do with age and metabolism. I will never be as small as I once was, but I am happy that I am at a healthy weight now rather than being fluffy like I was for nearly 10 years.
