Wanna See My Panties????? (For reals. I'm not shy, you know.)

I bought a pair of purple jeans when I was visiting Artesia with Donna.  I've never had purple jeans.  I told Donna that they fit because she is used to getting all the clothes that are too little for me.   And I was feeling a little bit quite selfish.  MY jeans!  Like a two-year-old.  (And this was the same weekend that Donna let me have a really soft sweater that she had brought to wear because she felt it was too "pilly" for her to wear to work.)

She was generous.  I was two.  MY JEANS!  IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THEY DON'T FIT!  THEY ARE PURPLE AND THEY ARE MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now they are hanging in a place of honor on the outside of my closet door so I can see them anytime I'm in my bedroom.  Every few days I try them on.


I have a ways to go.

But, if I grit my teeth, squint my eyes, stick out my tongue, and pull both sides of the waistband towards my middle with all the hand and arm strength I have ------- I can get the button about an inch and a half away from the buttonhole.  But I can't take a picture doing that.

And you know me.  I have to take a picture. 

So ....... what do you think?        Christmas?  No, probably not.                Spring break?  Maybe, if I'm willing to give up breathing.             Summer?  Yeah.  Maybe summer. 

Whatever.  DONNA IS NOT GETTING THESE PANTS!!!!!!

Not unless I find out they're too itchy - once I'm able to get them on. 

Love,
Jenn

  1. Clever Jen. Most people hang a bikini on the door as inspiration and we all know we are way too old for bikini's. So if it works let me know and I'll go buy something I love that doesn't fit and see if it will inspire me to stop eating.

  2. I did the same with a pair of jeans. I left them hanging on the bed in the spare room and tried them on every week. I now do the same with a little teeeeeny weeeeny black dress that I am trying to squeeze into! It zips, it just is glued to my ass.

    I think you need to aim closer than summer - go for St. Patrick's day.

    You are going to have to just track, account for what you're eating and do some exercise - all things that are good for you any way!

    Good luck!
