Borrrrrrrrring and an NSV...

Well, I think I did a little too much thinking on yesterdays post. I'll try not to do that again. It's just not my forte. Sorry I was sooooo boring.

After going out to dinner and a movie (we walked between the restaurant and theater) last Saturday I discovered that my jeans were too light weight for winter and they are the only pants I have so I started catalog and on-line shopping. Thought I'd get a pair of chords. After looking at the size charts I've discovered that I have a size 12 butt and a size 14 waist. I just hate having a baggy butt so I went searching for stretch chords. I hate to order them on-line without trying them on so I started getting disgusted. Then I remembered picking up some jeans at Wally World at the first of the summer and after getting them home I discovered they were stretch but too slim cut, but I kept them hoping they'd fit later on. So off I went to the bottom drawers of my stash and found them. Hey they are 14P slim and fit perfectly and they are heavy enough for winter. Yay, I don't have to waste the money on a new pair of jeans but I'd still like a pair of chords.

Haven't done so well the past couple of days with my eating. I haven't eaten unhealthy but a bit too much. I've gotten down all my water though and that's a good thing. I've also noticed since the bread problem (almost running out), I'm eating more bread than usual. Just craving those sammies. So I've got to get a handle on that one. A loaf has been lasting me about 2 weeks and last week I went through a whole loaf. So far it's going better. I've never been much of a sandwich person and usually didn't eat that much store bought loaves of bread. I much prefer biscuits and corn bread and hot rolls. At least I don't have them often because I'd do myself real damage. Although I am considering whipping up some corn muffins to have with some pinto beans for supper. I do have enough will power to freeze the left overs and use them sparingly.

Things are back to normal for me and the dogs since the puppy's gone. Sure glad for that. When you're as old as I am (and the dogs) change is a little hard on us.

I entered the Mary Lou's Weigh Platform Giveaway!

With all the problems I've been having lately this just might be the key to keeping me on track.

So how's your week going after the holiday?

Silly, you're never borrrrrring!

Congrats on the "new" jeans. I remember when you bought those!

I have the same affliction with a bigger middle than hips. What works for me is to choose pants that sit slightly below the waist, which effectively takes it out of the equation. (Of course, I have to wear a spandex camisole to hold in the jiggly middle and avoid the muffin top, but it works well.)

Hope you enjoy the rest of the week!

I love shopping in my own closet! So far I haven't had to buy new pants because I had older ones tucked away.

I don't know anyone who enjoys shopping for pants. They're the trickiest to get to fit.
