Good News and Bad News

First of all, here's the GOOD news:

I fit into my 'skinny' jeans! (Happy dance, clapping hands, and gleeful shouts of joy are being engaged in at this moment) Yep, I just put them on, and they zipped right up with no problem. Looks like all that diet/exercise mumbo jumbo is finally paying off!

Now, for the BAD news:

My 'skinny' jeans aren't really all that skinny. As a matter of fact, they're the exact same size as my regular jeans. Just a tighter version. Which means I have very low standards for what constitutes a rowdy celebration.

 Hey, at my age, I'm gonna take what I can get. After all, I'm working with NO METABOLISM and a STRONG CANDY ADDICTION. Not to mention an aversion to SPANX.

Spanx alone would make me look 10 pounds thinner. But I'm not going there...I'm doing it the old fashioned way. Lots of caffeine, starvation and excessive exercise.

What do you mean, why is my hand shaking?

I am SO disappointed. LEAVING ME BEHIND IN A TRAIL OF PROTEIN FART DUST! I thought I knew you. Now who am I going to discuss mini-cadburry Easter eggs with? Huh? Huh? Did you think of THAT? Didn't think so. I can't discuss it right now. I need time to think.

"...I have very low standards for what constitutes a rowdy celebration." Ha! That is so ME!

But really, fitting into anything tighter than what you normally wear is cause for a little to-do. Shall we have some ice cream?

Haha! Yes, I believe we shall have some ice cream. :) Lisa, my darling blogger, OF COURSE I'll discuss mini-cadburry's...and pop a few down my throat while I'm at it, since those kinds of calories don't count. Sloshed down with a big swig of coffee, they will be completely washed out of my system.

Spanx is surely a creation of the devil. The last time I wore one all it did was push my fat up to the top of the Spanx and it spilled over. And I really don't think it made me look thinner. I'm with you all the way, sister (in-law).

Well anything that fits that didn't before is cause for celebration which I will do with you by pouring another cup of coffee.
