An update from Micah's Jeans.

Fatty wears me to a Christmas Party.

My fellow comrades,

Today my Fatty-bo-batty (or FBB for short) wore me out of the house for the first time since I arrived, and it was about stinkin time! Where did my FBB take me you ask? Out for a Sonic Happy Hour drink? Out to eat? Out for ice cream? Out to shop? Nope.... she took me to a fourth grade Christmas party. At first I was appalled. Why would I, fabulous jeans, you know, the ones that make her buns look squeezable and AWESOME want to go to a fourth grade party? I mean come on! Fourth graders have not had two kids. They could care less that I have to squeeze some full figured 5'10" 220 something pound FBB into my outstanding material. But, oh well.

I walked her fabulous buns into that class room, and followed every move she made. And, to top it all off, she did not even enjoy the buffet of high fructose corn syrup. (well, maybe just one little cookie). She did not drink a soda today, or eat wee little donuts. No sweet tea, chocolate candy, suckers, potato chips, dips or anything. I tell you what fellow bloggerhood jeans, my FBB kicked some major high fructose corn syrup butt today! I felt honored to make her buns look good!
Well, it is time for her to take me off now....she needs to put on her sweat pants and big baggy shirt, because she can't breath! I will write more the next time she decides to take me out. And I will try to get her to take a picture of me....and her buns! :)

Until then, good luck!

With love,
Bloggerhood size 16 jeans

Micah got the 16's!

Our darling Micah got the size 16 jeans from Sue! I'm super excited about her journey over the next two months, and I wish her a ton of luck in getting too skinny for the sixteens, baby!

Here's her blog post about the package. :)



They are here!! Said jeans appeared in my mailbox on Monday, and it was so fun! I felt like a little kid seeing that package. I hurried inside and opened my package from Sue. She is so sweet! She put fun confetti in the package, and some candy canes (which if you saw the video, you know I don't have to feel bad for eating them). I took pictures...I just could not help myself.

So, now we get down to business. Can she fit into the size 16 jeans, as hoped. *** SIDE NOTE*** I really wanted to take some
pictures in the jeans out in Dewey so you all could see our cute little town, and so you could see all the fun thing that the jeans are getting to do... but it was REALLY cold when they got here, and I was not doing muffin top shots you get to see my bedroom instead! :) With promises to see fun places with me in the jeans!
Ok, so here goes (and I really can not believe that I took these pictures, and I really can not believe that I am SHOWING them online! there you go! They fit, but snug. I could wear them, but would really be comfortable after about day three when they are nice and stretched. But, I have incredible support here at home, and some really supportive friends, so FATTY BO BATTY BE GONE! Can't wait to see what happens after two months.

Good luck to all the other Bloggerhood sisters!

Star Crossed Pantsers...

It's time for me to send the size 14's off to Sue! Here's a little video for you guys, and I think it describes our relationship pretty perfectly. :)

Size 16 update from Frannie!

Hi all!

Sorry for the lack of updates lately. My great idea to get a second degree has been a major distraction now that the semester is coming to a close. Off the bat let me say, I’m a little embarrassed that I set my goal SO high and will definitely not be reaching it. Two pant sizes in two months is a LOFTY goal and I encourage any future pantsers to set their sights a little bit smaller. One size in two months is nothing to scoff at, and if you surpass it you will only be that much more excited. That’s a very small part of the reason I haven’t checked in lately (the much bigger part has to do with a 45-page paper, a 36-page paper, a 28-page paper, a couple of articles, lots of editing, two book transcriptions, not to mention quizzes and tests, all due in the last week).

Here’s the thing, though. I’m not getting so discouraged I’m quitting, and that alone is awesome for me. My results haven’t been what I hoped for, and I’ve had way more distractions and set-backs then I ever thought possible, and I’ve had to question my commitment and face the “What is wrong with me?” blues on more than one occasion, BUT I’m still plugging away. I’ve found a new trail near my house that my boyfriend and I have been riding our bikes on three days per week for at least an hour a day (my ass has not been very appreciative of this new hobby, or it would probably be more), and I’ve incorporated lifting weights into my game, along with some at-home cardio whenever I can fit it in. I’m trying really hard to not worry about the scale until my actual birthday, because a really badly-timed rough patch in there screwed me up, and looking at the scale reminds of that in a not-so-good kind of way. So I’ve just been focusing on how I feel instead, and that’s keeping me going. Today I feel great. Today I feel empowered. Today I feel really happy that I'm finally posting an update.

I figure I could get upset with myself for not making it, or I can be happy I tried, and be ecstatic that I've made some mental progress. And, I figure, with the semester almost out of the way, I can kick some major butt these last 10 days and see where I end up. Because that's so much classier than giving up. Right?

So at least I can say I’ll be finishing my journey in style. Srsly, working out like a rock star. And loving it.

The Mission of the Pants Continues...

Super awesome thanks to Sue over at Did I Just Eat That Outloud (Umm, you should all know her as my deluxe partner in crime, and super hot legged lass by now) - for this vid.

MMM at A New Road 4 Me is getting the 18's! We're all very excited to see how she does with 'em! :)

Keep your eyes peeled for more videos from us, and those of you who have gotten pants so far, I'm talking to you, and you, we need updates! <3

In FACT, I'm really excited to see where Frannie is since her last update, 'cause she's only got 2 weeks until the 16's are sent along to the next recipient! Keep your eyes peeled, also, then, therefore, for the giveaway for those sweet jeans very soon! :)
