Those Darn Thighs!

I think my body likes practical jokes. I stepped on the scale this morning and saw that I've lost about 5 pounds since I cut back on the carbs. Not sure what the doctor will think about this development, but they must have realized that was going to happen, right? Anyway... So since I was having a "skinny" morning (relatively speaking), I thought I would slip right into my prego skinny jeans. WRONG! I pulled. I squatted. I even laid down on the bed to try and wrangle them on. But that just made me out of breath, so I finally gave up. I couldn't get the darn things over my thighs!!!How could I have LOST weight, but my thighs still expand? I wasn't ready to give up on my outfit for the day (skinny jeans with Uggs), so I found another solution - I took my cropped prego jeans from the summer (that, btw, are made out of a nice stretchy material), cut the cuff loose, and pulled my Uggs up over them. PERFECTO! However, I must note that although stretchy, these jeans have almost reached their maximum capacity as well. Gosh - if I lose another few pounds, I'll have to go up two sizes! : )
