Years ago, I never wore jeans. Just dresses and skirts. I loved getting dressed up! I don't know when, well, yes I do know when it all changed. I was a little over weight for a couple of years and instead of just buying new clothes. I actually, had my current clothes altered. Note to self: just buy new clothes. So, there I am living in a new town, nothing to do, but eat barbecue, watch reality shows, and go to work for little change. I couldn't afford to buy anything, including new clothes. So, I packed up my car with all that I could and tracked it back to Houston where there was already a job and an apartment waiting on me. In the next couple of months I managed to lose all the weight because I had things to do, people to see. One day, I thought, "I need a pair of jeans, but what size do I wear"? I mean I was already wearing my old pants that were too big. I trucked it on into The Gap where this very nice male customer service rep greeted me and asked me what I was looking for. I said I need a pair of jeans. He asked what size? I said I wasn't really sure that I hadn't really worn jeans since high school. Maybe a 16? He said, "Oh, I think your smaller that a 16". I went into the fitting room with the 16. He checked on me... I said, "Well, how about a 14"? He said okaaaaaayyyy. He gave me the 14. I tried it on and it was too big. He came back and asked me how I was doing. I said, "well, it's a little big". He said, "I knew you weren't a 14. Okay, so I asked him to bring me a 12 and a 10. Can you believe they were too big?! He asked me how it fit. I said, "why don't you bring me back the 8 and the 6." He brought them back. I tried them on and they were too big. I asked him one more time that I'd like to try the 4 and go ahead and bring back the 2. He did just that. Would you know that the 2 FIT! The 2 FIT! But, I didn't want it to shrink on me, so I got the 4. He told me, "you're every woman's dream to go from a size 16 to size 4 in less than 30 minutes". LOL I'll never forget that conversation or the experience. As a matter of fact I wore those jeans for years even when the naturally tattered holes in the knees got bigger. It just looked like a fashion statement. Those jeans still hang in my closet today to remind myself that one pair of jeans can change a woman's life by giving her confidence, like it did me. Like they still do. It's my hope after you read this, that you go find a pair of jeans and strut your stuff!
