Okay, no more brooding or heaviness. From now on it's good times (well I'll try at least).
If you had asked me 5 years ago, heck if you had asked me a year ago how I feel about stretchy pants (i.e. yoga pants or jogging pants) I would've said they should only be worn at the gym or at home. Never, ever, ever should they be worn out in public. However, if you ask me now, I have a very different opinion.
Here is my history with stretchy pants. When we were going through fertility treatments, I became very bloated. That's when I started wearing stretchy pants but only at home. I suffered when I was public squeezing myself into my dress pants and jeans. I refused to wear them in public.
So now I wear my stretchy pants whenever I can, out in public, on a plane, on long car rides, everywhere and anywhere. Plus, I'm getting to the age where I just don't care anymore. So long as I'm comfortable, that's all that matters.
