This may sound weird, but I have been wearing stretch pants for years. So to be able to wear pants with a fly is kind of a new experience. I mean, aside from the pair of jeans I got back into recently, it has been a long, long time! A few weeks ago I bought two pairs of slacks at a second hand store. One I could fit into but they were snug and not being used to a fly I was afraid to wear them. What if I sit down and the button pops off? The other was a size 16 and too tight to even try to button or zip them.
So today I thought I would try on the larger pair again and if they were loose enough I would have something new to wear to work. I pulled them out of the closet and put them on and they fit just fine. Then I realized they were the smaller size 16! Oh my god, they fit! I wore size 16 gray slacks with button and fly closure and it may sound weird but this feels like an NSV (non-scale victory). I felt normal today. Normal non-stretch pants. Such a little thing but it sure felt good.
