The Demise Of The Camo Pants…..

About two years ago I bought myself a pair of camo pants in Jay Jays Jeans.  They were on sale for $10 (yes you read that right!) and in my work as a Special Education teacher with pushing wheelchairs, feeding kids, painting and all the various other things that occur in my day they were the perfect cheap, cool, comfy pair of pants for work.  They were a size 14, which at the time I was JUST able to squeeze into.

Then my weight went up and the pants got a little tighter and I didn’t wear them so often.  It was a shame because they really were great pants.

Then I started 12wbt in June, and soon not only did the pants start to fit better, but they started to get a little loose.  It felt really good to see this change.  Then after a wash, the pants got put away in the back of the cupboard and I kind of forgot about them for a couple of months….until yesterday.  I found the pants and put them on.  My first thought was, wow these really are getting loose, I might need a belt (of course, I could not find a belt to fit, I have not purchased a belt since the 20kg weight gain).  I decided to risk it and headed out the door. Alas, half way down the stairs I was clutching at the waistband of the pants which were threatening fall off and flash all my neighbours.  I actually had to go back and change. So…….that’s that.  The end of the beloved camo pants.  Not worth the cost of getting them altered, but I will miss them all the same.  To the charity bin they will go….BUT how awesome do I feel that I could alter my body so much on this journey that this would actually happen.

Got to go, must shop for PANTS!


  1. Hope you find another bargain like the $10 camo’s.
