Skinny Jeans Don’t Lie When It Comes To Weight Gain

Over the weekend I broke a nail, actually two nails. It wasn’t like I was doing any type of manual labor around the house that would have caused them to break. I was simply trying to put on  a pair of jeans, but not just any pair of jeans, my favorite pair of Calvin Klein skinny jeans.  I did squats, I pulled, I sucked in, I laid down, I did more squats and lost two nails in the process.

Needless to say, I’m going to have to bid adieu to my favorite pair of jeans, simply because my ass has gotten too fat for them! I remember glancing at the tag, just to make sure they were mine and possibly not my sisters. Yup, they said size 10. There was no mistaking it. They belonged to me.  I sat on the edge of the bed, not only pissed that they didn’t fit, but more so pissed that I’ve gained weight over the past couple of months.

Usually I’m between a size 10-12, but ideally, I prefer to stay closer to a 10. Once I feel myself inching (literally) pass a size 10, then I know I have a problem to deal with. Sure a fat ass is nice Kim Kardashian has nothing on my ass and all, but when it comes between me & not fitting in my clothes (comfortably) then, “Houston, we have a problem”. So this past weekend, while my friend Soulafrodisiac, was visiting, I made a proclamation, that by the end of April, not only will I be able to fit into my favorite pair of jeans, but I’ll actually have to throw them away, because there’s nothing worst than a saggy pair of skinny  jeans.

I seriously think I need someone like Harvey Walden, from Celebrity Fit Club in my life to give me a nice deep tissue massage motivate me to workout even harder.

I’m not sure if it’s that I lack motivation, or I’m easily bored. Now that I think about it, it’s probably a little bit of both.  But right now, something has to be done before I inch back to a size 12. I tend to think the closer to a size 12, the Ashley Stewart collection is just right around the corner. I  mean not that there’s anything wrong with Ashley Stewart, but I’d rather not walk around looking like a plus-size Nicki Minaj.

In any event, today I’m starting my gym regimen right after I eat this piece of pound cake my coworker baked AGAIN. This time, I’m going to make use of the gym that’s right here in my office, because, I’m just too lazy to travel any where else. So hopefully over the next few weeks, my favorite pair of jeans will fit again and it’ll give me a reason to go out & buy some more.

    DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON YOU!! You better stop looking for excuses and get in that FREE gym you have at your disposal! I'm so mad at you for not taking advantage of that. HMPH!…lol So let it begin, Spring is around the corner and summer will come forth a blazing (well whatever 'summer' is…) But all jokes aside, it's more than just the jeans – it's our health! GET ON IT LADY! I support ya!

    More power to you and your new weight loss goal. Your deciding you were gonna wait until after you eat that piece of pound cake though… that sounds JUST like me, whenever I've been slacking off and try to get back into my normal workout routine. “I'mma act right and get straight, as soon as this pot of chili at the crib get gone.” LoL – I say u write CK a letter and tell'em they owe you.

    Good luck

    I love your blog and humor am right there with you. When I looked back to when I was 18 ten years ago and could strut to now. Its my motivation to move this body cause this fat can't melt itself. We have to take care of our health and keep everything in moderation. I have set a goal I am going to France in August and when I step foot off that plane I wanna feel and look exquisite doing it for me and only me. Keep it tight, keep it right.

    Ha! I still have my too-little clothes hanging up in my closet. One day I will be able to fit in them once again. Let's just hope my clothes are still in style by the time I lose my weight.

    You will be back into them in no time, I am in a 12 so a 10 is my motivation.

    Awesome points you made in this post! I will need to deeply rethink some of them! It really aint that easy as the celebrities make it seem. You really gotta be extremely persistenet and one should never stop trying. The results will come in due time.
