Belt it Out!

Do you wear belts? I have never worn a belt for two reasons. 1) They just seem uncomfortable to me and 2) Once I read a review of Rosie O'donnell when she had worn a belt on her show and it said something like "Fat people shouldn't wear belts". But I am having a falling down problem. I'm not small enough for a 20W but I'm wearing a 22W today and these are loose (although not a stretchy waist band, it is the stretchy spandex material). So I'm thinking about belts. Do I get one, or do I just pull up my pants until I can fit into a smaller size? Do they cut off your circulation at the waist and leave a big red mark? I'm very curious!

During yoga today I was able to bend at my waist with feet as wide as my ankles and touch my head to the floor. That was fun.


  1. I haven't worn a belt since HS. I had to wear them with uniforms and hated them ever since! Personally I would just pull them up until I fit in the next size, but thats just me :)

  2. Congrats on pants not fitting! :)
    I don't wear belts, just because they create a muffin top & a muffin bottom for me! (haha)
    But it is a good solution if you don't want to buy iterim pants.

  3. I have the same problem with pants - the bumper on me is a quite a bit larger than my waist! I do wear a belt with some jeans and I have found belts that are large enough that do not cut into my sides or stomach.

    Don't you just love those fitness accomplishments? ;)
