Help! My pants are falling...

...and I can't hold them up!

I knew that I would be losing weight but I didn't think my pants were going to start sagging so quickly. By all means, I am not complaining. I just wasn't prepared to modify my wardrobe (including undergarments) this fast.

Since I was faced with this little dilemma, I decided to go through my closet and get rid of everything that was too big and that I never wanted to see again. I had done this a week after surgery and thought I had purged everything but apparently there were still some stragglers left behind.

I also decided to dig a little deeper into the closet to dust off the clothes hidden in the back of it. You know those clothes, the ones that you kept because "one day you'll fit into them again". I pulled out my favorite pair of Levi's jeans and a pair of cargo pants that I haven't been able to fit into since early spring 2007 just to see if I was getting closer to fitting into them. I was a little apprehensive to even try for fear of being rejected by the pants.

I decided to try the cargo pants on first. My work pants are sagging the most and if the cargo pants fit I could wear them to work. I got both feet in and slowly pulled them up all the way AND zipped them without struggle. I thought I was going to wet my pants from excitement. The only thing I couldn't do was button them but that was because the buttons had broken off back in 2007 before I put them in the "back of the closet". I am planning on going to the fabric store this weekend to buy new buttons.

I picked up the Levi's and looked them straight in the rear. I was determined to fit into them. With a little effort in getting them buttoned and zipped, they fit too. I was on a "clothing" high! I wondered what else might fit so I did a little more digging and dusting. Even though there wasn't much else that fit just yet, I didn't get discouraged at all. I was actually able to gage how long it might take until I could wear them again. When all the clothes had been tried on (or attempted to try on), I did a little math and at the rate I am losing I figure I have until the end of June before I am going to have to start buying new clothes. I better start saving!

Now...undergarments on the other hand - I need to purchase much sooner. There isn't anything comfortable about wearing "unmentionables" that are too big.
