Remember that post....
Well, it's still true, but I realized this morning that I did need to curb my "indulgences" a bit. I'm wearing my fat jeans, and only just.
When I put them on this morning, I zipped them half way - and the zipper STOPPED. Uh-oh. Immediate flashback to impossibly skinny high school body, jeans and a pair of pliers. I remember those days (in the mid- to late-70s) when painted on jeans were all the rage. Sure we looked trashy, but hey... that was the fashion back then. My friend Steph was a master of the painted on jeans. She'd lay down on the bed, pull them on, grab hold of the zipper with pliers (or for particularly tight ones, channel locks) and pull until it came all the way up to the waistband. I never found that look comfortable - my jeans were tight, but not so tight that I needed the pliers. Just had to suck in pretty hard.
Today, I was wondering where our channel locks were.
I'm enjoying the holidays, but as soon as Christmas is over, no more sweet stuff, no more piles of pasta and much more motion. I am NOT buying a larger size!
