In 2007 Pete and I were going to the gym everyday. I'd spent 40 minutes on the elliptical machine and I was watching what I was eating as far as portions, but not content.
After a couple of months I bought some smaller clothes. It was awesome! Then Pete and I had the idea to but clothes 1 size smaller than we were so that we could work into them. So I bought I pair of Walmart jeans. $9. Perfect. If I never fit into them it's $9 bucks. If I fit into them, it's $9.
You know where this is going, right? Those pants stayed in my closet on the shelf for the last 4 years. Occasionally I'd pull them out and try them on. At times they'd fit over my thighs, at times they'd only come up to my knees.
Yesterday Pete was cleaning out his part of the closet. As a joke, I tried the pants on.
