Good Predicament

Well, getting dressed in the mornings is becoming somewhat of a struggle. No, I haven't lost the use of my arms or legs. I have lost a strange amount of weight in strange places. I am not necessarily losing weight in the same way that I gained it (gut, but, and well else where) and therefore I am having a difficult time finding things to wear. Last Fall, in a desperate attempt to find clothes that fit, I bought a pair of pants that was to big and too long. I like relaxed fit looks and so I thought it would work. Well, those pants are now out of commission. I can pull them off without undoing anything and since they have no belt loops I am out of luck. I bought a second pair of pants just about two months ago. Andrew and I had just eaten a HUGE meal at Chili's with an appetizer, full meal, and dessert (long gone are those days), and then we decided to do some pant shopping. Bad idea. Those pants are now almost to loose to wear. They look a bit baggy are are strangely uncomfortable. However, since I haven't lost enough weight to fit into my pre-sophomore-in-college weight gain pants which I saved, I am stuck with only one pair of pants that actually look good. I have several tight ones and one pair that fits but was stained by an unfortunate incedent in the grocery story with a bottle of Cascade! :) So, any one that would like to donate to help remedy this wonderful wonderful problem, please make checks out to me. I accept cash as well. :) :) :)

Good for you Jaime! I will say that shopping is the biggest struggle of both gaining and losing weight. I was so happy to be able to buy new pants and tops when I lost some weight, but then looked at my check book and realized I would be rolling down my waistbands for a few months to save.

As your mother always says, it's a pain to be beautiful....

Are you trying any of these clothes on before you walk out of the store or are you putting on two or three pair, paying for one, and then leaving??
Just teasing..
The old jeans that I put on this morning fell around my ankles when I got downstairs. I didn't put on a belt.(But that speeds up going to the bathroom.)

No, I don't shoplift if that is what you are asking! LOL :)

That's sooo awesome Jaime!!! How much have you lost and how are you losing it? I just started Weight Watchers 2 1/2 weeks ago and have lost 4 lbs so far. I agree about finding clothes to wear. After all these years of failed diets I have given all my skinny (as if I were ever skinny, HA!) clothes away. So I have nothing to use as an incentive to get in to. So I think I am going to go buy a cheap pair of jeans that are the next size smaller than I am right now. Hopefully that will work to keep me motivated. I am also going to meetings with 2 good friends. They are both really neat Christian women who are my mom's age. We've commited to helping each other and praying for each other. I could add you to our list if you would like. Best of luck!!! I will be praying for you
