-the long denim skirt with the pocket in front
-the funky 60s miniskirt with the little aqua and brown squares all over it (it's really cool, honest) that I wore with the shoes that my husband said looked like someting an evil teacher/secretary/ librarian would wear. (Unless her butt got too big for it)
-my Wranglers. This saddens me greatly.
-my jeans that I got to replace the jeans that I got to replace the jeans that I grew out of.
-The strappy little minidress with hot pink flowers with purple accents on a black background. And that dress has a great story to go with it- now what will I wear to weddings? I love weddings! Drinks all round!
-a couple pairs of hiphuggers. I don't want to talk about it.
-two pairs of shorts. Now all I have for summer is a larger pair of denim shorts and a pair of drawstring shorts. Drawstring. Not pretty.
-this one is really sad. My chaps. I've grown out of my chaps. Jethro gave them to me when I was 18 and they fit even after my kids were born. I can't even blame my expanding butt. I have to blame my thunder thighs.
Actually I blame the drugs. Last year I didn't give a crap about food and couldn't get my head together to cook, so we ate a lot of takeout and I got heavier. Then I went off the anti-depressants and realized that food actually tastes pretty good so I got even heavier.
Now here's the thing. I'm not overweight. And even if I was, who cares? Does being oveweight make me a bad person? No it doesn't. I don't even really look too bad. I'd rather be a few lbs lighter just because I don't feel totally physically comfortable in this version of my body. And that is totally my perception, not from comparing myself to anybody else, just from how I feel. Anyways...It's not really such a big backside. It's just that the rest of me is not very big at all.
But I'm expanding! This picture was taken in September. Those jeans are too tight now! When will it stop????? (Although I admit that when I'm dressed like this I feel really pretty. Seriously. I really am a hick.)
But you know what? I'm also damn near close to 36 years old. I'm allowed to be twice the size I was when I was 16. What did I weigh back then, was I even 100 lbs? Barely. I'd look ill if I was that thin now. I am a woman and it's okay to have some padding. All of the women in my family have padding and all are beautiful.
And besides, who cares. I have great hair. Yeah, that's right. I said it. My hair is awesome. I'd have to say out of my total weight, 50% is backside and 20% is my hair but I'm not so good with numbers.
Now be nice okay? I just put a picture of my butt on the world wide frickin net and I'm convinced with this and the admittal that I kinda like dudes with tattoos who wear eyeliner that I'll regret all of this admitting and showing and truthfulness. After this I might have to close this blog and go deep undercover.
