A tight squeeze!

Well, folks...if you read yesterday's post then you may remember my comment about the jeans I'm wearing in the picture posted. Last night my curiosity got the best of me so I tried them on again. I haven't worn these jeans in over a year. I hated to burst my own bubble, but they just don't fit anymore. Yes, I was able to get them on...and zip them all the way up, however the resulting look was one of a gal stuffing herself inside pants that aren't flattering and would cause immense va-j-j pain in a very short amount of time. Needless to say, these pants are worthy of passing on to a greater cause than permitting my rounder butt to fill their backside.

Don't get me wrong, I love the benefits of working out regularly. My butt is firmer (even tho it is a little bigger) and my quadriceps are definitely more firm and shapely. It's just a little disappointing that I can't still fit into all of my old clothes when I've worked hard to burn fat. I know, I know...the muscle is toned and the fat is certainly less than what it used to be. I guess this means fat is so much easier to squeeze into tight jeans than muscle.

Note to self, buy all pants with a bit of stretchy spandex so that my curves can be accentuated instead of flattened and squished!
