What Skinny Jeans Mean to Me!

What skinny jeans mean to me, is that I am just one dressing room door away from, "WTF is going on here?!?"

I am still lacking an understanding of why you did not return those jeans defective. Now, don't take this the wrong way, but are you afraid to return them just to find out that there was nothing wrong with them? You really shouldn't focus on size. I mean, you have had four children pop out of your belly, and I have had none. I still weigh more than you do, and I know you want to feel healthier and what not. However, I really think you let that "size" thing get to you. I think you look amazing for all that you have taken on in your life. I don't mean to say that you would look bad if you didn't have 1000 things to do every day. I just mean that you look good from my slightly biased vantage point. I love you!

No, I was really afraid that they would not take them back. I was not worried about the size, but was worried, because the smaller sized pair that I had first actually fit the same way the this larger sized pair, so IF there was something wrong with the pair I got, then the next size up will not fit at all, if they are sized correctly! I am not interested in focusing on size, because EVERY SINGLE THING I BUY is sized differently! I have a shirt that is sized smaller than all the rest of my clothes and it looks like a tent when I wear it, but there are others that don't fit that are a larger size! I would, however, like to have a magic fairy give me my own stomach back! Fat or no fat, the rest of me is the same size it always was and this part is now a joke! Stretch Armstrong does not always snap back! Ask my treadmill!

Not to mention, I think I should weigh exactly 5.875 pounds for all of the running I do each day, but none of the cleaning, screaming, washing, freaking out, bathing, beating or treadmilling I do must count at all!

ok this must be why I have clothes with tags on them from years and years ago cause I could not force myself to take them back cause I did not want to know that size I had moved to....why do they ahve to put a number on it anyways. I was watching what not to wear and they said that it doesnt matter what the number is as long as it fits you right....yeah they can say that cause they are like 100 lbs not a hefer!! On a serious note momma b you look great and always have...I know in your mind you dont feel it but on the outside you do look great! I only had two watermelons and I have turned into a giant pear! As for snot head...you are just so dang cute and love the new hair cut! You look great as well, which I looked like either one of you guys! Does anybody want to trade?? Momma b I wish I had a tread mill to try to attempt to work off the butt thing but not sure where I would put it. I did have a really cheapy tread mill but it was in the basement....I dont do basements and espeically ours. Just to creepy! So of course Big D made fun cause I never used it...but see it didnt cost us any money cause it was given to me. But if I could find room somewhere in the liveable part of the house....I make an attempt!!! Well you both are gorgeous outstanding women...so dont fret!!

seems like I've heard of skinny jeans before...

As you have read in the comments, this is not really about skinny jeans, because there is no way in hell that I would buy them, but it is more about a pair of jeans that I got for Christmas that has done nothing but make me mad, since I tried them on!

I put them on at home and they did not fit. I returned them for the next size up and the new pair fit the exact same way the first pair did! That really made me mad! I think one of the two pairs was sized wrong. I did not try the next size up, because I believe the pair I got was labeled a size bigger, but was really the same as the first ones, so a larger size would be too big, in theory anyway!

All I know is that I am going to make my butt small enough to wear those jeans if it kills me! The last baby having incident has left me 7 pounds heavier than I was to begin with and it is only my laziness that allows me to stay there! (and maybe the two chai tea drinks that i so graciously allow myself each day!?!?!? can't be that, you say? i didn't really think so, but...)

Oh, and for my sister's ? about returning them only to find out there was nothing wrong with them????

I got the only pair in that size and length. I rambled so much the first time that I did not even say anything about that part. There was nothing to return them for.

This was meant to be funny, not to stress me out about the size of my ass!

Seems the latter is what is happening though!

does your treadmill count calories burned? I've been on the machines at the gym (not treadmill because I abhor running, but the bike and, new to me, the eliptical) that count them up and I have to say -- watching that gets REALLY addicting! I LOVE seeing the calories go and go and I go faster and faster and turn up the resistance just to watch them tick by a little bit faster. Seeing how long it takes also effected how many calories I consume too...

long. rambly. sorry.
