Fat Jeans

I've put on a few pounds over the last couple of months.  I really don't like to talk about my weight even though I've had some major issues with it over my lifetime.  I don't obsess about my weight, my diet or food in general.  On the contrary... I've always felt that if I paid a little more attention to my diet I'd probably eat much healthier.  I just don't think about it.  I won't go into all of the details here, but I do have a nasty chocolate candy addiction that I should kick.  My waistline and my dentist would be thrilled. I should probably lose about 20 lbs.  I'm about 5-8 lbs. heavier than I was three months ago.  This was never more evident than a couple of weeks ago.  On the flight to Oregon, I busted the zipper on my jeans... (yes, they were too tight.)  I have 2 different sizes of jeans and these were already my fat jeans... one of two pair that I keep on hand.  I faked it the rest of the day by keeping my sweatshirt pulled over the front, but I tossed them that night.

In planning for our trip this weekend, I realized that I only had 1 pair of jeans that fit.  I hated to do it, but I had to stop today and buy another pair of fat jeans.  There's no way I can drop the 5-9 lbs I need to fit into my regular jeans.  I hate clothes shopping so this was pure torture for me.  On the way to the check out (at Kohl's) I walked passed the Godiva Chocolate display and grabbed a milk chocolate bar.  I set the candy on top of the jeans on the counter and just started to laugh. The clerk must have thought I was nuts.

I would have taken a picture of the candy bar with the jeans (so you could get the full visual) but I ate it on the way home.
