100 lb. Club - So, i almost lost my pants in public

Does that count as an NSV? :o:lol:

I live across the street from a daycare, and the kids lost a ball over the fence into the middle of the street. Being the kind neigbor I am, I went out to get it for them and toss it back over the fence. So, there I am in the middle of the street, half jogging, and I suddenly feel my pants slipping lower. . .and lower. . .and lower. . .:lol: I swear, I'm pretty sure I would have been violating Mexican public decency laws, in front of children no less, had I not had a very long sweat shirt on. My crack was definitely peaking over the waistband in the back :o. Thankfully, I realized what was happening before they got any lower:D. The thing is, I have some 20's (these pants are 22s) in my closet, but I tried them on a couple of days ago and they buttoned, but were too tight to wear comfortably and not feel like i was showing off more,uh, detail of the junk in my trunk than I need too. I think I need to hit Target or some place for a few pairs of cinch waist yoga or sweat pants to hold me over.

I love it! That's so awesome!

That is awesome! Do you have a belt? When I first started this I got a belt that would continue to work even as I got smaller, the braided kind that you can fasten at any point. It has been a life saver. I also have another one that I keep getting DH to put more holes in.

Definitely a NSV, and a funny one too! I hate being in between sizes where nothing seems to fit, at least you know you're losing weight. Congrats on your progress! :cheer2:

Edit: FitGirlyGirl is soooo right about belts. I never wore belts before (they always seemed to shrink, lol), but since I've been losing weight I would not be able to survive without my trusty belts!

I think my husband has one of those braided belts - I'll have to raid his closet :lol:. I think I'm going to pull out the 20s again in the morning and see if they're fitting any better.

Okay, okay, you win the embarassing falling down pants story contest :lol::carrot::carrot::carrot: I think we need a falling down pants smilie:dizzy:

ETA: did you ever notice that the word embarassing includes "bare" and "@ss"? I guess we know what happened to the person who invented THAT word! They got so skinny that their pants fell down!

This is reminding me of the American Idol guy, "Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground!" :lol:

lol, that's great that you're shrinking out of the old clothes! Maybe while at Target try a pair of their size 20 pants. I usually wear a 22 [actually a 21, but I can never find them], but Target's 20s sometimes fit me with extra room. But I love their yoga pants. I could live in them, lol. I also had an almost pantsless episode today. I was out shopping today and my favorite pair of jeans kept slipping off my butt [just a couple inches, but still.] I'm sure a few people got a glimpse of my panties as I kept tugging the jeans up. Thank goodness I chose to wear the cute ones today, lol.
