I love this thread! So, I thought I would post something, though those that read my journal have already heard about this:
In college, my two best friends were two of the most beautiful, sought-after girls on campus. Hanging out with them was fun, but definitely NOT good for my self esteem. We would go to parties and guys would be VERY eager to introduce themselves to L & J, and they wouldn't even make eye contact with me, even though I was standing right there with them. Sometimes my friends would go out of their way to introduce me to people just cause some people were so rude.
Anyway, fast forward to a couple weeks ago.....1 year out of college and shopping with L. We hit the Gap and I tried on a pair of size 8 jeans just to see if they would fit, and they did. But that's not the best part - the best part is that after I decided not to buy them, L tried them on. As in, I am now the same pants size as her! It was a moment I didn't think would EVER occur. And I think L was a little shocked, too. It was hard to try to hide my ecstatic-ness. I may never be as gorgeous as her, but it was still an amazing moment to know that I am the same size.
