Ha! I think mine have plenty of room...large expanse of cotton to work with...
And, I guess I really need to drop some pounds- I went to a concert last night and went to buy a shirt. I wanted the women's shirt (cool purple color) and it was the fitted style. I asked for an XL, and the woman gave me a flick of a glance as if to say, "Not going to fit!" and I said, "It'll fit soon!" and she chuckled and said, "It'd fit now, it'd just be tight!" I guess I should have been insulted, but it was actually kind of funny! So, when I get back to work in a couple of weeks (and won't be sitting at home snacking), I'll start.
Your underwear are definitely not granny panties or big at all! I'm glad that you wear normal underwear...after I signed up for this swap I was thinking "crap, what if my partner wears thongs
? I will have no space for work!" So this just means that your underwear will be all the most fabulous.
And whatever to losing a few pounds. Sometimes I truly loathe how weight-conscious our culture is (I know I know, this spiel again...). When I look in the mirror I realize that, yes, I could stand to lose some weight. And, yes, I don't look like I did when I was 15. But the truth is I think I look just fine the way I am and I don't see the point in being obsessive about what I eat just so I can fit into my jeans from high school (although, admittedly, I do see the point in being in good physical shape...but even when I was in the best shape of my life I was never even close to a size 4). Grrr, it just drives me crazy.
Apologies for not checking in much. The past few weeks have been the most stressful I've had in a few years and it's kind of sucked. But things will hopefully calm down by next week and I can have my life back, haha. And I am most definitely looking forward to this weekend when I shall do nothing but watch Star Trek and craft. Excellent.
Thanks for minimizing my butt size!
As for my need to lose weight, I didn't start putting on pounds until I hit 30- I don't want to get back down to college weight, but I really should, for health reasons, drop about 40 pounds... Once I get my back issues straightened out, I can start exercising. It's frustrating right now because the weather is perfect for walking, and I can't walk too well! I've never been on a diet and refuse to try the latest miracle "remedy." I know exercise will help quite a bit. I don't eat a ton- just not the best foods and not much burning off of that food...
Anyway, back to undies talk!! I have my test undies almost ready to go (slight delay in my oh-so-optimistic plans) and should be able to do step 2 on Monday. I can't wait!! I have the "theme" going for the undies, I just have to finalize a couple of details... I really hope my test undies work out okay, because I have no idea what I'll do otherwise!!
