(Before: One of those O no, really? pictures)
At least the previous was taken by a friend, so it's legible compared to the ones I took below. Grainy & half-focused! That's the kind of quality photography you can expect here at "Am I Really That Fat!"
Here are my New Jeans. As you know, jeans and the way they fit is an inexhaustible subject for me. These are Levi 515, stretch, dark blue, medium length, medium rise jeans, obtained at Macy's on sale for $34.50. They're pretty good, though not as nice as my jeans from Avenue, sniff. Now it is safe for me to drop into a 12, as Levi's can follow me to a much smaller size than I can imagine ever going. Notice they cut out the back waistband, so whether you bulge or gap there you don't have to deal with it. The only risk is showing your underwear if you're contorting excessively. Nothing's perfect.
According to my records I've lost an inch here and there since my last pics. But, alas, you can't really tell. At least it shows improvement from the "before" I unearthed above-- taken last winter.
I was getting worried I might be losing my butt. Not a problem, as illustrated. Part me of wanted to suppress these pictures because of course I'm not thin enough, but then I remember this is a WEIGHT LOSS BLOG. S'okay! Hopefully the next set will show a bit more shrinkage (matched up with some trimmed-down fasting blood sugars).
