another none scale victory but oh the embarassement!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

first let me say how glad i am at the moment that the weather is so cold over here now that i was wearing a pair of black leggings under my normal going out trouswers.well you can guess what happened.yesturday when i went to pick ayyub up from kindergarten i was in a rush as i was late.as i was fast running to get to the kindergarten in time i could feel the trousers slipping down my bottom(and yes i did have the button done up )i quickly managed to catch them and lift them up,on the way back they started doing the same this time i was not alone though and i had to keep hitcthing them up like a little kid.the other mother asked me if i had lost the button.i said no just weight.she laughed but i wanted a whole to jump up and swollow me.but then as i went to open the front door i needed two hands my trouswers actually fell down to round my ankles.as i said glad i was wearing leggings under and that the other mother was no longer with me.i don´t know if anyone saw it i hope not but i gringe at the thought.guess it is time to buy some new trousers.and i have decided to count this as a NONE SCALE SUCCESS despite me putting on half a pound this week,lol.the wii super hulahoop must be doing it´s thing.so here is me in my trousers emoticon

    I can imagine the embarrassment but I am still so happy for you!

    I had something similar happen to me many years ago. I was wearing a skirt and didn't really think it would be a problem to wear an older slip under it "just this time" because I hadn't bought a smaller slip after losing weight. I was walking in down town Kalamazoo, to the buss stop and I felt it slipping but I was not fast enough. It fell off under my skirt!

    I very quickly stepped out of it, bent down and picked it up and put it in a bag I was carrying. I didn't look at anyone. I figured if I didnt' see them noticing, then I could pretend no one did.

    Don't worry about one little half pound on the scale. The nonscale victories are far far more important.

    I can't wait till I have that problem! Keep up the great work! I've heard the weighted hula hoop is great for the waist line!

    emoticon OK Karen you had me rolling! I could see something like that happened to me. I'm a cheap wad and won't go buy new clothes even though I need them. I think the need of a goodwill is definitely in OUR future! emoticon emoticon

    Oh my gosh!! That is probably the funniest and most awesome thing I've read all day!! Your pants fell down! AHHHH!!! My face would have been bright red! Oh the pride you must be feeling...your pants are too big! AWESOME!!!!! Ummm, yeah, go buy some new pants. I suggest a consignment shop-no need to pay a lot for them when they will just be falling off again in a few months!

    OMG the same thing happened to me a few months ago. I was outside, standing in a chair, hanging up a happy birthday sign for my baby. I felt my pants falling and i kept pulling them up. Next thing u know they really start falling as my hands are tied up hanging the sign. Im thinking oh Lord let me hurry up so i can pull my pants up. Just as i said that, my neighbor across the street bust out laughing and says, OMG your whole a$$ is showing, lol. and she was on the ground cracking up. I was embarrassed at first, but then thought hey no need to be cuz that mean im lossing weight. So with that being said, all i can say is emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    WOOHOO Karen! Time to treat yourself to some new pants! Congrats on the inches lost and your non-scale victory!
    2657 days ago
    Wow, I am impressed and sorry to say LOL. When I start having to hitch up my pants, that is when I wear a belt. But had to buy a new one of those too, as my old belt didn't have any holes left. Good job on the inches lost and hope you can find some new pants! You need them!
