Yesterday my sewing friend and I met for our weekly sewing adventure. Here is where I talk about... the Unmentionables. Yes. You heard me right. We sewed.... Underwear. LOL. We found a tutorial on YouTube, and cut up pairs of our old undies, made patterns, cut up old t-shirts (mine said "Cowboys Wanted: Only Studs Need Apply". )
So anyway we cut them up and made our first hand-made pair of undies. It was fun. Until I looked at my undies and realized how much bigger they were than her undies (she is a size 6/8 on a bad day). She tried hers on over her pants (and they still made her figure look great). I cringed. She urged me to try mine on, and I suddenly became very self conscious. I didn't want to try them on, and they not fit. Because I am overweight. I didn't even want to show her my undies. I feared she would think less of me once she saw what a parachute they looked like.
She wanted to make a second pair. I wanted to hide in a hole.
I am turning this into motivation. I wanted to run this morning, but I am told you should only run every other day, and cross train on the "off" days. This is an off day. I ran yesterday. Who would have thought I would WANT to run?!?! But I can't wait to run tomorrow. Today will be Zumba after the girls therapy session. Maybe this time next year, I will make a pair of undies that I will be proud to try on over top of my clothes.... *sigh*
