Micahs Glamour Shot

Hi.  I’m Micah and YES, this is my glamour shot! 🙂 I actually never look like this.  I’m single and I love to travel.  I love to cook, read and relax.  And I’m a happy size 14…on a good day. 🙂

For a long time, Marquette and I have been leadership paper complaining about the way they make pants for women.  Has anyone else noticed that????  Men always look good in their pants.  But women….they take a pant made for a size 0 and use the same dimensions for a size 14.  Umm…doesn’t work that way.  Or they make pants for teeny-boppers and think they’ll fit a women’s body.  Ummm…NO! 

So we started this crusade to find a way for the industry to make pants for real women like us.  We started out thinking we’d take a class to learn how to make patterns.  Didn’t happen.  We then thought we’d take a sewing class.  Well, we’ll be posting about that.  Quite humorous!  Then we decided we’d set up a website.  We’ve now decided blogging will be our best way to openly complain about our distaste for trying on pants. 

We’ll blog about pants…and hopefully “Pants That Fit”, we’ll blog about weight-loss (of course), we’ll blog about healhty eating (when we actually learn what that is), and we’ll blog about life.  We hope you enjoy our journey with us.  Please feel free to let us know what you think.

Marquette’s Glamour Shot

And I’m Marquette, the younger sister.  Just kidding…I’m the older sister, but I love it when people think I’m younger (which doesn’t happen very often).

Years ago I happened to be watching The Maury Povich show and it just so happened that day he had a fashion show for plus sized women.  All the women looked fabulous–and being a size 14-16, I thought there’s hope for me too!

 Since then, I’ve realized you don’t have to be a size 2 to look good and I’ve been intrigued ever since with finding clothes that make you look the best you can with the body you have.  Well talk more about this in future blogs. 

We all have things we hate about our body and we waste so much time worrying that we can’t fit into this or think we look horrible in that.  Micah and I are hopeful that we will be able to help you find pants and clothes that fit.  We’d love to hear from you with questions, comments, or where you like to buy pants. 

My husband and I have been married for a long time…and, yes,  that’s a good thing. I’m the happy (well, most of the time) mother of 3 kids and one huge puppy dog.
