My Ass in Jeans

 Last month I wrote a post on how I got compliments on my ass when I wore a pair of jeans - for the first time in my life. Someone suggested I put up a photo of me wearing the jeans. Well, I wore the pants again today and thought to take out the camera and get some photos. I cannot believe I am posting a picture of my rear. - This from a woman who systematically destroyed ANY photos of me taken from behind since I was 19 years old. It did not matter if they were my photos to destroy or the property of another person; I destroyed the photographs and then dealt with the animosity of the owners later. 


Denial is not just a river in Egypt. I thought out of sight/out of mind. It was more than stupid and vain, it was sad. I am glad not to be that person anymore. I am grateful not be in that pain today however I still do not like my ass. All I can see are the rolls of skin that cling to what is left of my tush and thighs and saddlebags. But I do like that someone else saw something worth commenting on, therefore I will keep doing the kettleball and lunges and squats. 


So here are the photos and the link to the blog that led me to post them here.

You look fabulous, Jane! What an amazing accomplishment! If you can look good in jeans, you can look good in almost anything!

What a lovely victory of acceptance. I just had to stop by and congratulate you.

You look fab and I love the body acceptance. I have so few photos with my son due to my weight - it's a repeat of my own life with a morbidly obese mother.

I know that I will regret not having the photos when I'm older so I do try to include myself on occasion.

Thanks for the inspiration. You rock!

You look wonderful.

Love the pics, great behind and great jeans.

I do not see the excess skin in these pics and I have the kind of eyes that see. the clothes you choose are serving you well.

but I also agree with channeling that feeling into lunges and squats. I have that same channeling with my latts and upper back. Not hate, yes channeling.

You look great in your jeans. Being able to wear jeans is a testimonial to weight loss. After I lost my weight I started wearing jeans for the first time in many years. Now that's about ALL I wear.

Hooray for you.

You look pretty damn slim, Jane! All your rules about avoiding desserts paid off. Love the blouse too.

Nice ass!!

And I love that you're a kettlebell girl...I fell in love with the 'bells mid 2010. I took a bit of a break but am back at it. Kettlebells rock and so do you!
