I believe everybody has three types of pants in their closet.

Type One: The WOW! I Look Great Pants!

The Wow! I look great pants. These are the pants that you wear to all your happiest moments in your life. They are Traveling Sisterhood of pants that you don't share with anybody cause you look great in them. However I've seldom worn these pants because by the time I've earned the right to wear them I self sabotage myself and eat my feelings which leads to the next type of pants.

Type Two: The I'm Not So Fat Pants.

These are the pants you slip into when you are starting to look okay. Now you are having kinda rough days but its okay cause you work out occasionally and they kinda look like your WOW pants. These are the pants that I try to spend as little time as possible. Not that they aren't great pants but they are rather tight and you just don't love them very much. I usually wear these pants when I'm gaining or losing weight. Which leads to their evil demon spawn children.

Type Three: The Oh Dear Gracious What have I done to Myself Pants.

These are my secret shame pants. They are the ones that have elastic in the waistband. They are the ones that grow with you! Also have a sneaky resemblance to pajama bottoms. These are the pants that I wear at my darkest days. They don't look great and they usually lead me to evil places where I buy more food to eat my feelings. I don't love these pants but I keep them on had so I don't explode out of my I'm Not So Fat Pants.

I realize that I should listen to Dr. Oz and only keep the type one pants but the hard thing is life is hard. Sometimes you don't realize you've gone from type one to type three till its too late.

But Glorious News! I've graduated from my type three pants to type two pants! Life is good! I just have to work harder to get back to where I was before! I can do it!

Now leads me to what hides in your closet?

  1. That is so funny Blake! You totally hit the nail on the head. I too am in my type 2 pants. I love that you wrote this. I will probably re-read it every time I go up to my type 3 pants. And you are right! You CAN do it!
