single digit size jeans!!

woo hoo hooooo!!!! okay, not exactly single digit size, but yesterday I bought a pair of blue jean shorts in size 9/10, which I haven't worn in quite a long time (unless you count Gap jeans that run extremely large for what number they give them, or used to back before I had kids). I had to, I have nothing that fits me anymore. Keep in mind that I also last week made myself a pair of shorts, using a pattern that is size 16W, and those also fit me... with major alterations to the inseam (no, not inseam, rise?) length because I didn't feel like wearing my britches up around my ribcage, or having my crotch hang down to my knees. Nope, not gonna post pics of that monstrosity. They have to be the ugliest pants ever created! But they were my first attempt at ever sewing pants (unless you count Barbie clothes), and they *do* fit.

I'm still in my size 10s, and gaining weight these days, myself. Not too worried about it at this point. I did recently get diagnosed with hypoglycemia and hypotension (low blood pressure - it was 80/50), which worries me more.
