Jeans Battle

Jeans

crumpled on the floor
didn't fit
obviously cheap

hang again
five more days
sized wrong for sure

nope, not yet
throw in closet
cover with clothes 
now the bad guy

sucking in 
lying down
not gonna happen
stomp on them
yell at them
hold them and cry
blame them, not me

one more chance
that's all I'll give

one leg
then the other
zip
button
breathe

my new favorite jeans

  1. Yes, the classic battle for gals! Love the "denial" passage -
    "nope, not yet
    throw in closet
    cover with clothes"
    This is me! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hummmm....sounds very familiar especially , "yell at them
    hold them and cry
    blame them, not me"
    You have captured a common experience perfectly.

  4. I had that experience recently... but then I got sick and stopped watching my intake as closely... so the battle is back. :) Thanks for reminding me that we're not alone in this.

  5. Jeans - such a love/hate relationship I have with them. We all fight the battle!

    1. Right? AND they are always too short, too long, funny pockets, blah, blah! Ugh!

  6. I stopped with the battle and had a good day jeans and "fat" day jeans. The worst is that my "fat" jeans, have become my regular jeans.

  7. Yikes! Seems like so many of us fight this war! I was doing pretty well, then the battery in my scale died. And of course, if you don't have a scale, you don't have to be careful, right? And mow my jeans feel really tight again! :(
    Congratulations on winning the war, at least for one week!
