So, um, I’m losing my pants

15 Oct

That title should get a lot of hits on the ‘ol google machine!

Let’s do a quick update on my weight loss, shall we? As of last Friday, I’m down 46lbs total. I’m in a size 14 (sometimes a 12) pants and Large shirts. HOLY CRAP! I’m shrinking and I love it. I feel better, my ankles and knees feel better and I feel better about myself. Sure I have “fat” days where I think “man, I’ve lost almost 50lbs and I’m still fat” but I pull up a pic of myself when I started and decide that I’m totally rockin’.

The only downside to all this weight loss is my closet. Thankfully my sis sent me some clothes or else I’d be naked by now. All my old stuff is falling off of me or makes me look like I’m wearing a tent. I totally need to go through my clothes and throw the big stuff in a bag to take to Goodwill. While I’m there I need to shop for smaller clothes. I hate spending money on myself, especially knowing that I’ll be out of the 12/14s soon and then those clothes will be donated back to where I purchased them. I have never shopped at a Goodwill (not bragging or anything, hell, most of my wardrobe came from Walmart/Target) but I do not want to spend a ton of money on clothes right now. Plus I can’t; Christmas is coming up and I want to be able to buy buy buy for my kids.

I mean, seriously, I have one pair of slacks that fit now. The rest are so big they fall off or are so baggy it looks like I poo’d my pants. Not attractive at all, people. And these were the clothes I bought snug and tight so I could wear them longer. They lasted a whole 8 weeks. I put on a pair of jeans this morning. The last time I tried them they were pretty tight. So pulled them out this morning, giving them a “go” and I have to keep pulling them up today.

I know it sounds like I’m complaining and you’re probably thinking I’m nuts and I kinda am. I’m bummed that I have to spend money on me on clothes that hopefully won’t fit by December. Tell me how that makes sense? Plus, when am I going to find the time to go shopping? But I gotta do something. I’m pretty sure sagging and showing my panties are not in dress-code! LOL
