Operation: Pants

At the end of the summer, I was feeling a little chubby.

For those of you who haven’t been reading foreva, I should probably point out that my weight, fortunately, is very, very stable. I am always the same size. And, at the end of the summer, I was at the heavy end of that. And I didn’t like it.

But didn’t really do anything about it. So I stayed slightly pudgier than normal through the fall.

But when Aunt Marie died, I lost most of my extra fluff. Not eating will do that to you.

And, for whatever reason, my appetite has yet to return to pre-Aunt Marie death levels. Yes, I eat. But not like I ate before (which, honestly, was something small every hour or two, in addition to three meals/day).

There have been positives to this: I don’t have to grocery shop as often. I also don’t have to haul as much food to work every day.

There have been negatives: mostly, that my pants don’t fit. I still look respectable in my jeans, thank goodness. The pants that I wear to work, however, are a joke. A saggy, ill-fitting joke.

I’m at work right now, actually. Should one of my coworkers try to pants me, he/she would have no problem yanking these pinstriped beauties down to my knees.

It is not cute. Saggy ass is not in.

I am finally to the point where my pants are loose enough that I am left with no other choice: shopping. Shopping for pants. To wear to work.

Shopping for stuff to wear to work is not fun. Especially when it is pants.

But having your ass hang out of your pants is not cute or fun.

So I'm going to the mall. The lesser of two evils.

I had the same problem last year. It's like you don't want to bitch about losing weight, but it is pretty annoying (esp. when you know they weight loss doesn't stem from neccessarily the healthiest of situations). But never fear - I'm sure your bootie will come back. Mine did! :)
