my pair look a bit like these MNG jeans, medium rise & super skinny.
I could feel myself losing weight... think I weigh about 46 / 47 kg now. That's me whenever I'm down with fever/flu. The other day I saw a friend whom I've not seen for quite some time, the first thing she comment was how small (I don't like the word skinny, macam sakit jak) I was.
After I had Arman (who is 5 now), I thought I would never lose the fat around my waist & bum. And of course being over 30 years of age, that really makes sense. I was wrong, you could really loose the unwanted weight and fat...
It started last year when I was working at the restaurant. I was so busy usually lunch for me is at 2 or 3 pm. Then, when I got home, I'd be too tired to have dinner and with late lunch that I usually had, I would feel too full to eat. You see, what happened was I developed a habit of not eating much. That's why I stressed it in my tip, eating is a habit. Regular eating is a must but eating junks is a bad habit. But in my case, it is not a good thing either. Now don't get me wrong, I love food. I can eat a whole plate of whatever, but because of my eating habit, my stomach won't be able to take too much. It somehow only manage to take half the portion.
Not that I purposely wanted to develop that habit of eating... Then it was fasting month. We don't really eat much at 'sahur'. Just some toasts with milo. Me, sometimes I don't take anything at all, just plain water. And during last year's Ramadhan, we did not buy outside food. I cook like how we usually eat other months. No extra kuihs, no special ayam/ikan panggang or extra special dish. Then it was time for me to bake my cheesecakes for customers. Got some extra money to spend. I said to my husband, "Sayang, I want to get a new pair of jeans..." So, we went to Levi's store. Though I got the money to spend, I still didn't want to spend too much. There were discounted pairs on sale.
The girl asked me, "Kak, can I help you?" "Yes dear, do you have anything size 29 or 30??" I answered her. "Sorry kak, we only have the smaller sizes.... I think you should try size 27..." She suggested. "27? No, that wouldn't fit me." I said to her. Then my husband said, "Just try them on, it wouldn't hurt." I like shopping but I really don't like trying on, buka, pasang, buka, pasang, buka, pasang...... lelah lah.... So, I took the size 27 and put them on. Guess what??!! It did not fit!! Too big for me! My jaw dropped and I showed my husband the gap around my waist between the jeans. And the girl said, "I think you're a size 26 kak."
I didn't buy anything at Levi's. I went to MNG, a friend was telling me they have cool skinnies. I tried a pair of size S. They fit me like a glove and didn't cost as much as the Levi's. The first time my girls saw me in them they exclaimed, "Wah !! Mama wearing the Indie look... "
Still, my husband says he'd prefer if I put on a bit more weight... I said to him, "Then I would not be able to fit into my MNG... !" Ha ... haa.... silly , no? Anyways, I thought about getting another pair, this time maybe at Levi's.
