Trimming The Fat

I’m wearing my big girl pants today. Jeans, to be exact. They actually are my big girl pants. You know the ones. The “Just in Case” jeans you save after you have lost weight.  Just in case you put on a few extra pounds and you don’t want to go out and buy a new pair to be comfortable.

Before you start to judge me, which we all know you already have (thanks friends), they don’t fit. NO, they aren’t too SMALL, they are too big, thank you very much. I actually need a belt, and it’s cinched pretty good just to keep them on. But they feel good. You know, that favorite pair of jeans feeling? When you slip them on and nothing is pulling or tugging or hugging or gripping?  It’s nice.

I could tell you I put them on this morning because It was dark and I couldn’t find my “normal” jeans in the mad dash to get ready (partially true).  I could also tell you that I really like the cut and style of these jeans, and I think that they make me look taller (less true). I could give you a whole laundry list of excuses as to why I put them on. One of them being actual laundry. Seriously…I think all my other pants are in the laundry. The real truth of the matter is, while standing in my closet this morning looking at the limited options, I knew that these jeans would be the most comfortable. Even though they would be a little big on me. I knew that because….because…..AAHH. Don’t make me say it!

Ok, I’ve thought about it, and I think I’m ready to admit it. It’s time to face the music so to speak.

I knew because..I have put on a few extra pounds lately. There, I said it.

OH CRAP. Now that you all know…I have to DO something about it. No, this is good. I want to. Accountability. It’s a good thing, right?

Ok, My name is Beki…and as of today, I am determined to TRIM THE FAT. Amen.
