Dear Diary,

You will never believe what I discovered at Kohl's today. I have dropped a jean size :-D! Really. I first tried a pair of capris in the smaller size. It fit perfectly. Just to be sure I tried on a pair of jeans in the smaller size. And it fitted again. Yaaaaaaaay :-D!

I don't know how long this has been the case. It never even struck me that I should try a smaller size while shopping in spite of all the "you are looking thin" comments I have been getting. Till I went shopping last Saturday with my visiting friend and she looked doubtfully at the jeans I was holding and said, "Hmm, you should maybe try a smaller size." I totally disregarded this advice and bought my regular size.

On Monday morning I sadly pinged her, "I am wearing my new jeans and they are loose around the waist. I need to buy a belt now." Turns out getting a smaller size would have been a better solution :-D.

So after eons of wearing the same sized clothes, I am going down a size now. Nah-nah, I am not going to revamp my wardrobe or anything. You should know better than anyone, diary, about how sometimes even breathing the kitchen air adds pounds onto me.

But the smaller-sized capri I have bought to commemorate this occassion looks super fab. Besides, it goes really well with the big grin I have on my face right now.


p.s. I know I said no diaryish posts for a month. But if this news does not qualify for a dear diary post, I don't know what does.

Serendipity - I was just about to say - "I am lucky you know" or "The secret's in my good metabolism" :-P. But I guess I might get kicked. I think being too lazy to cook and subsisting on bread and such might contribute a bit :-)!

Vishesh - lol :-D! Jean of a news - hehehe!

Anon - thank you :-D!

Sindu - really? She went down to size zero? And its in the news?? What the heck!!!!

Well, if you are thrilled about losing weight - then, good job! Is the weight loss due to your active lifestyle, or stress? Either way .. good luck with keeping it that way!

I do want to meet you some time :)
