Nowhere to go but down ....

Monday, September 20, 2010

Of course I've said that before and managed to go up. On the scale, that is.

Anyway, it's been awhile.

I have not been behaving as well as I would have hoped.

I'm ready to fix this.

I had my month of boot camp, and I really enjoyed it very much. However, at 5x the price of my regular gym membership, I simply can't afford to keep it up. So I will rededicate myself to the gym.

I've also been out of town and October gets a bit ugly. I always use that as an excuse to eat too much, exercise too little, but before every trip I am going to go back to The List. If I make a list, I have to mark stuff off. If I add 'Run 30 minutes' to my to-do list, maybe it'll get done. It's worth a shot.

Anyway, back to that nowhere to go but down thing ...

I've been buying Gap Essential Fit jeans for years. YEARS! I don't own any other jeans! I've had them in size 10 ... and 12 ... and 14.

My 14s are still in the closet and still fitting, but they're looking a little raggedy. So off to Gap I went to buy some new ones.

(a) They've changed the styling of them. This does not please me. They're still OK, but they're not as good.

(b) The 14s are VERY tight. They don't make a 16 Ankle, which this midget-legged girl needs to survive.

Therefore, I have no choice but to lose enough weight that those 14As will fit.

Because buying new jeans is a horrible experience. It's almost as bad as bathing suit shopping. Always ... every single time!! ... jeans are a nightmare. Too big in the waist, too long, too small in the hips or thighs, too long, horrible gapping at waistband, too heavy, too light, too tight, too big, too long, and did I mention too long? It's horrible.

Damn you, gap!

And damn me, fatso!

Time to get this under control.

Not only am I sick of being this size for health reasons, I'm sick of being the biggest size in the store and having no room to maneuver.

    AAAAAHHHH I HATE jeans shopping. I worked at the Gap for about six years and I had TONS of jeans. Of course, none of them fit *just right* but I wore them anyway. I like their Long and Lean - they are looser in the thigh and don't sit too low.
    I also loved the Essential fit and was totally sad when a) my favorite pair didn't fit anymore and b) when they stopped being available so now I need to fine a new style I like. Bleh.

    Good luck!
