Tight jeans with muffin top

Sunday, October 11, 2009

Well, I ran out of clean laundry, and came across a pair of too-tight jeans I thought I had given away. Just to see, I tried them on and was able to do them up easily, with a muffin top over top. When I bought them, I was able to do them up using all my strength and then in addition to the fat, I think some organs were hanging over the top too. It was a great feeling, because the rest of my clothes I can't really remember how tight they were.

Yesterday I dropped a log on my toe. It is keeping me on the couch. It's a little depressing but when I read the article on exercising with a cold or flu the author said remember this is a life long change for a healthier lifestyle so a few days off won't hurt you and it made me feel a lot better. Yes - healthier habits for life.

    I hope your foot feels better. I never dropped a log on my foot but had a terrible ankle incident. Don't fret...think of other things that you can do that doesn't require you to walk or stand. Cardio may be out of the question but for example...sit ups, leg lifts, biceps and shoulders are all 'do-able'. And I definitely know about the muffin top. I too still have it in some pants. One day we'll be free of the 'busted biscuit' syndrome and look awesome! At least that is what I keep telling myself. I'm glad to hear you are well on your way. emoticon

    I love it! I, too, seem to have a muffin top that lops over everything. I don't know if I will ever get rid of it, no matter how much weight I lose. As long as I wear a big top to cover the muffin, I look pretty good, but let me put on a tight top and I look like I am wearing a life-preserver under my clothes. I feel better knowing that I am in good company! Thanks for making me smile.

    I hope your foot is better. It is really hard to exercise when you can hardly walk. (It's hard enough when you CAN walk. LOL!)

    It's great when you see results. Congrats.
    I read that you drop a log on you foot , and I thought that was an odd statement because I did the same last summer and never really heard of anyone doing the same. Not sure what you "log" was, but mine was several hundred pound log for the log house we are building. I hope you foot will be better soon.
