stomach flu and jeans
The problem with trying to describe what size I am is that NZ sizing is a wee bit different from the rest of the world... here is what the mighty internet had to say about what NZ sizes correspond to:
NZ sizing roughly corresponds to UK sizing, so a NZ10 is a UK10, US8 and EU36.
Recently I've been a size 6 or size 8 NZ, depending on brand.
Today, I squeezed myself into a pair of size 6 jeans. NEVER in my life did I think I could fit into size 6 jeans. But I guess that fits with US4 which is the size of clothes I get online. It makes me feel a bit sad because there was one crazy period of my life when I thought that I was a US0 because my measurements fit with some ones I read online.
But mind you, when I say that I squeezed myself into that pair of jeans, I mean SQUEEZED. I was sort of falling around my room struggling to button it up but once I managed it, well, things didn't really improve. I can walk in them, but sitting isn't the most comfortable thing in the world.
As you can probably tell, I went to get some trial clothes today. I've always had this pair of trial pants, they are made of pink canvas and are beautiful but strangely, they zip up at the back, right over the bum crack. And this zip, it doesn't work very well at all. For the longest time ever I thought that I couldn't zip them up because I was too fat but recently it has become very apparent that the pants fit me very well, I just couldn't do the zip up because the zip just doesn't go up anyway.
So I bought my size 6 jeans today and a singlet as trial clothes. They do fit, as in, I can squeeze into them but they don't look good. I think another 10lbs or so and they should fit nicely. So I should be able to fit them reasonable soon so as to not make me lose motivation. Looking forward to looking thin in those jeans!
