Well my embarrassing moment today has led me to some major motivation and has been a huge eye opener.. For the past few weeks I have had 1 pair of pants that fit for work and i refuse to buy new pants I thought I might have been pregnant this past month so I didnt start dieting or anything like that just incase well i found out last week I wasnt for sure so I decided it was time to get back in the routine... Well this morning I decided I would cram myself into a dif pair of pants they semi fit although they are pretty tight but wearable.. Well i got in to work and was putting some stuff away and one of my co-workers noticed a hole in my pants near the back pocket... I ended up having to take some super strong duct tape she had and tape them from the inside to hold them together.. Mind you I work at a prison so its an even bigger deal to have a hole back there.... This has def given me a kick and makes me really want to hammer down and loose this weight!!! Anyway just thought I would share so everyone could get a little chuckle because it is a pretty funny situation! Hope everyone has a great day!

Funny but I'm sure at the time it wasn't a lot of fun. I'm sure all of us have had something like that happen a time or two. Glad that it gave you some motivation to lose the weight.

Are you guys trying to get pregnant? I've been trying to get in shape and stay really healthy so when we do get pregnant I can hopefully keep it up.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I'm glad that you can take a scenario like that and turn it around for motivation instead of getting upset over it! And good idea with the duct tape Smart thinking!

I have been in that situation before but I've always had a certain amount of stretchy clothes so I can usually make do. I know that I had a really hard time taking off weight when we were ttc Shawn. I think that thinking of I don't want to diet in case I'm pregnant was exactly what caused me to not lose weight. But, if I were to do it over again I would not worry about that too much because I don't really diet now. I just try to eat better and exercise.

Over the past few months my whole outlook on everything has changed mentally/emotionally. I have learned to just find something good in every situation and have faith that no matter how bad or how hard things are they will get better!

Well, I give you credit.. not sure I would have been able to have a sense of humor if I were in that situation! those should be the pants you keep so you can hold them in your "after" pictures!
