Getting Crotchety Here
Do your pants ever look like this:
I've worn out the inside thigh area, again, on the only pants that fit me. My daughter discovered the tear last night.
"Mommy, are you going to buy a new pair of pants?"
(sigh) "Yes." But in my mind I was saying, "No! I don't want to buy another pair of plus-sized pants."
I've read in blog-land that we shouldn't wait until we lose the weight to buy flattering clothing for ourselves. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. "They" are right, but I loath shopping. This is what happened the last time I went shopping: click here. (And, yes, those are the same tan pants as above...note: October).
I have one other pair of pants (jeans), but they are too tight. My goal is to lose 5 pounds so I can breath in them then another 5 so I can move freely (strut instead of waddle). Maybe I can make these last until I get down to the next size where I have a few dusty pairs on the shelf waiting for me.
So, I took pictures of the too-tight jeans. I'm hoping these become my "before" photos. I can't believe I did this but I read photos are good measuring tools when the scale lies. It's also nice to see the difference (assuming there's a positive change).
Trying my best to hold in my stomach:
