for today is fitting into this sad poor shorts that are a size 18 on the tag. They’re probably a 20 though. For 2 summers I squeezed myself into these shorts. They’re the only ones I owned cause I kept saying I’d “lose the weight” and then gained more. So 2 life lessons. 1. You’re value isn’t a number on a scale or shorts. Just got buy clothes when you need them. And 2. I’m glad I hoarded clothes cause I did finally lose the weight.
Fashion question: when do workshop clothes get beyond it? Is there a line? What’s your line? I’ve had these awesome @kathmandugear
shorts for about 15 years. When they were deemed by my amazing wife to be not good enough to wear out I started wearing them in the shop (Kathmandu stuff is awesome quality and lasts forever). But these now have so much glue wipes on them that they crinkle and crack when I sit down and there’s a hole in the bum big enough to put your hand through. And now my kids are demanding I throw them out. What do you think? #oldshorts
You guys have no idea how happy this makes me! It's been years since the last time I managed to squeeze into these!! 😍👌 #oldshorts #weightlossgoals
Obsessed with distressing old jeans! 😍
My favorite shorts that died on me around a month ago have been repurposed in to a climbing chalk bag. There is even part of one patches that held them together. The day they ripped on me I was afraid I would run into other hikers. They were split up to my belt😳! Now for some new memories with my new chalk bag and Bryson and me climbing.
Trying to waist train again ❤️
Storage bag for camping light thingies made from a pocket from old shorts. This guy knows how to go after my reuse-recycle heart ♥️
Planning on being mostly sedentary for a day? Have some old jeans that are ripped in rather embarrassing places? Make a weird little bag! This little project occurred during a #AMC #walkingdead
binge, many episodes later this was rendered. All of the material was salvaged from a pair of old jeans, minus the zipper which used to be the fly on a pair old shorts. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I've come into a situation where im staying overnight elsewhere than home once a week and I've been needing a sack for all my toiletries, didn't feel like paying money for one at all so i did this! My hand stitching leaves a LOT to be desired, majorly inconsistent using pretty inferior thread, this thing took a solid seven hours to do at least.... I think i need a sewing machine.
