There's Big and then there is BIG

I bought these shorts in early June. They are now two sizes too big for me. I bought several pairs of shorts along with these, all in the same size. They fit at the time, but were a size smaller than any of my other shorts. I had nothing that fit me, so I had to get some new shorts at the time.

Now, 2 months later, they are too big. So big that even with a belt they swim on me. I know a lot of people think I'm not really losing weight. So this is a bit of a visual aid. Now you tell me, are these shorts huge or what?

For the losers that had a heart attack over my new $7 shorts, thinking I have a hell of a nerve buying NEW CLOTHES when I say how poor I am, perhaps you might understand now why a new pair of shorts was necessary. Because when you can pull your current shorts down without even unzipping or unbuttoning, they are TOO DAMN BIG.

That is all!

That is the absolute BEST REASON for new shorts. :-)

Do you sew? I don't. If I did, I could take in and let out waistbands for weight loss/ weight gains. This is the wrong season to try selling the old ones on consignment, too. You'd have to wait a year.
$7? And significant weight loss? What a deal!!

Do you have a "buttoneer?".. it's a small hand tool that you put this plastic thing in... Poke it thru your pants (or whatever) and it's an instant hem. I have one that I use for the girls pants all.the.time. You can even wash them and they don't come out. I got mine at JoAnns.

I can't think of a better reason to buy new clothes! :) (but definitely, you needed new shorts! Imagine the horrors of them falling down in front of your kids friends or something, LOL)

$7 for shorts in any size other than a freaking 0 or 2 is a deal!

Aw guys, you rock! Except the nasty person that accused me of lying and saying that I was showing an elastic waistband. Um yeah. Aren't people nice?

I've never heard of a buttoneer, but I did get a nice offer from my friend IRL who has seen my weight loss first hand (no slouch herself, she's gone from a 16 to an 8) to use her sewing machine to put in some darts.

You know those plastic things that hold tags to clothes? It's sorta like that except the plastic is much shorter. You put the plastic piece in, poke thru the clothing... and push the top down... and it fastens the clothes. You can use it to put a button on too.

Holy crap, those are SO not elastic-waist shorts. Talk about grasping at straws.

I got wind of some of the craziness going on through a friend on LJ... wow. I've been targeted by some of that nonsense before. It's people who literally have no concept of walking a mile in another person's shoes. They're going to regret that someday when the tables get turned on them.

Well that is wonderful. Are you following a specific plan for weight loss? (I hope you wont' say "diet & exercise" I'm kind of holding out for something easy. It isn't working.)
