Magical Transformer Underwear!

It's possible this will only entertain me, but ... well, that means at least one person thinks it's entertaining, so here you have it:  transformer underwear.

I mentioned recently that size 7 underwear looks significantly smaller straight out of the package than size 9.  Guess what?  It also looks smaller than size 10!  Turns out I'd been wearing underwear sizes 9 and 10 since I was at my highest weight.  Interestingly, of all the clothes I'd taken to the consignment shop, or the charity shop, or are sitting in a pile because I don't know what to do with them, it took me QUITE a while to need new underwear.  But evidently I'm a little slow on the uptake, because I was thinking, "these still fit me" all along. When in fact what had happened was this:

Cute little hipster underwear that used to fit like this or was at least cut to fit like this (only with a few more fat rolls than this model, plus actual hips):
Turned into granny panties like this (The Hubs calls them GPs):
So ... yes, in fact, they DO fit ... but ohmyword, they look hilarious!  What's funnier is that I don't think I even figured it out -- The Hubs noticed I'd been wearing GPs -- lots of them -- since I'd lost weight (the assumption, of course, being that once a person lost weight, they'd prefer littler, prettier undies, no?), and even then it took a while for me to figure it out.  OH. DUH.  I actually have lost weight, and continuing to wear the same underwear just means it covers more of me.  And because there's nothing wrong with them --  no rips, tears, or holes -- I hate to throw them out!

But I've tossed all the 10s (no; I am NOT donating them to a charity shop), and I'm weeding out the 9s.  And I'm wearing the new 7s that I bought, which look a lot more like the top picture on me than any underwear ever did before :)

Now, if  someone could please get rid of these piles ...
1. clothes I think I'm going to do something with 2. clothes I have no idea why are in another pile  3. clothes to go to the charity shop

1. clothes for the consignment shop for next winter  2. rag bag

  1. Hey you! Congrats on your effort and results. If you haven't gotten rid of all your cloths, you could make a t-shirt rug (check them out on Pinterest).


It's been a while.  A long while.  To catch you up, I broke my leg on the descent from a 14er in June.  It was a hard summer, but I&...
