Day 29 – Not for the Faint of Heart

Warning:  Explicit pictures below.  OK, really no so explicit, but they are pictures I am sharing because, I might as well!  I am sharing everything else via the web series, so a couple pictures can’t possibly hurt.

Two years ago I was visiting my friend Jenn (visit her blog here) around the time I started gaining significant weight.  Jenn has been battling with her weight for years and was holding onto some clothes for when she lost some weight.  Since I was growing out of my pants she kindly shared a large bagful of clothes.  Some fit perfect while others were kind of big.  I put the bigger clothes way out of the way so that I wouldn’t comfortably grow into them.  Well, I guess I didn’t really pay close attention.

Today I was looking for a pair of shorts to enjoy the beautiful weather, and went searching for the stash of clothes.  I found them, pulled out a pair of shorts, and was sadly disappointed to find I had outgrown them.


Here is just after I discover I can’t even get the button close to the buttonhole.

And this one I took because I have a similar one somewhere from right after I had the tattoo done.  Way before I ever considered the effect stretchmarks could have on my belly.  (I will update when I find it, I am so bummed it is no where to be found at the moment)

OK, that’s it.  At the end of this 90 days I am hoping I will be able to secure the button.  I will take a picture then.  If it takes a little longer, then I will update you then.  But I will be damned if I don’t get these shorts to fit!

  1. No shame, no regrets! Although I will NEVER go back to 310 pounds, I look at my “before” pics and I forgive that body for being what it was, and what it still is. Although I look forward to what it is becoming, I know that body carried me through so much and did the best it could with what I gave it so I thank it and forgive it and bid it goodbye! I took my before pics like two years ago and posted them in shame, now that I have lost some weight I am sooooo glad I have them so I can look at them and see the improvements. It’s so worth it, you’ll see. I am wearing pants today that were my very favorite cuffed cropped jeans from before I got preggo with Tucker. At 310, I couldn’t get them over my thighs but now they fit with room to spare! You will be rockin’ those shorts in no time!

What's that you say?
