100 lb. Club - Embarrassing Moments in Weight Loss History

09-13-2007, 01:05 PM
Ok, we all know being fat is embarrassing. It's a BAD embarrassing. I was surprised to find that weight loss is also embarrassing, but in a funnier, happier way! Here's my first "Embarrassing Moment in Weight Loss History"
I went out to get groceries last night and realized I had forgotten my checkbook. I live in a 3 floor walk up and with every pound those stairs get harder. The old me would have sent my 9 year old upstairs to get the checkbook, but the new me decided to get some extra exercise so off I went. I decided to RUN up the stairs to geta little more out of it. A few steps up, my pants (the biggest ones, size 24) started sliding down my hips. I grabbed them and kept on running. A few steps later my poor 44F's started bouncing painfully out of control so I dropped my pants and grabbed my Ta-tas! At the top of the steps I burst onto the landing and was greeted by my neighbor's teenage son and his girlfriend. There I was, huffing and puffing, pants well below the panty line, and 1 boob in each hand. I didn't know what to do so I just blurted out "I'm on a diet!!!" and ran into my apartment.

THAT's Hysterical!!!
It's great that you find the humor (especially with teenagers) in the situation. They might have made no connection with your actions and your words, but I think it was great.
Most of all, I think it's great that you went to get the checkbook yourself!
Isn't it great that you can now say that you've lost enough weight that your clothes falls off!?!

Thanks for sharing!

This is a great story : ) I, too, live in a third floor walk-up (until the end of the month, anyway) and some days when I get back from the gym, that last set of stairs is killer. But I make myself take the stairs at work all the time now, so it's getting easier.

I'm glad I read that before I took a drink - I think it would have come out my nose. I'm laughing so hard. Thanks for the great story. I also needed the that today :)

Good for you on running up the stairs! Way to GO!!!

I definately think that tops my story of wearing a skirt and dealing with panties trying to fall off and having to adjust every few steps.

09-13-2007, 05:52 PM
That is one of the funniest things I've read in a LONG TIME! :rofl::rofl::rofl:

No bra holds them in quite like that.;)

That's great!

How about capris that get loose and look like high water jeans, baggy bras and undies slipping around and pants going too low in the back. There are days I keep a blanket around me at work to keep everything in it's place!

:lol: I'm so glad when we can find the humor in our situations! I haven't had anything goofy happen to me yet, but I'll be sure to share when I do!

Kudos on the droopy pants! :cheer2:

Oh that is too funny! I have the image you described clearly in my mind. You've got a great attitude. And by the way - good for you for going to get your checkbook yourself instead of sending your son! It's stuff like that, that will help you get to your goal, even though it turned into quite the scene. :)

09-15-2007, 09:18 AM
Bwhahahahaha! I probably would have said the same thing! That's hilarious.

I have one...this past Friday while getting ready to run to class, I decided to put on a pair of pants that fit well before my weight loss journey. I didn't realize they wouldn't fit so well anymore. Well anywho, I left my room and made my way to class with only a few mins. left before I would be late, and I noticed my pants were sort of falling down. So I kept holding on to them, while holding onto my gym bag, bottle of water, and mp3 player (I planned on going to the gym after class). Well that whole thing wasn't working so I decided to tuck them into my undies and pray the elastic band would hold them up. Which it did!!! I told my mom and she died laughing at me!

OH no.. Did you ever imagine that you would be tucking your pants into your underwear to keep them on!!!!
