Some things are meant to jiggle..


Buildings in San Fransisco.


Double "D's".

Pudding before it, you know...... pudds..

The handle of a running toilet.

Undercooked eggs at IHOP.

The family budget.

Baby bellies.

Ah ha - that's the one...BABY bellies. Cute. Adorable even.

Not so much when it's my belly.

And, until very recently, I hadn't really noticed my belly jiggling. It was too faaa...uh..too fuuu...too... BIG.

And it was tight. You know, like when you have a full water balloon...that can't jiggle because it's too full.

Firm-in- a-not-good-way firm??

The other day I was wearing my now-too-big-for-me-jeans-but-I'm-too-cheap-to-buy- know the ones...(I can actually pull them up & down to go potty without un-zipping them..) Hey....Grown-up "pull-ups"! I know...TMI..

OK, so....someone made me laugh in a meeting.

All of a sudden I felt this.......jiggle.

Oh. My. Heck.

What was that??? Embarrassingly, I knew....I was my not-so-tight-belly. 38 lbs. gone and obviously I hadn't found anything funny enough to actually make it...jiggle ...before...

Lordy, Lordy. What now?? Stop laughing?? Surgery?? EXERCISE, for goodness sakes??

Then I remembered something I wore, and that I saw my Mother wear...a girdle!

If I got one tight enough..and if I knew the law of physics..I could aim all that too-big-for-me-skin ...somehow... up..up...up..

And, if I could figure out the mechanics of it all, I could again!

Course, then it would be just this one...massive... mammary. A uni-boob..

...finally, a use for all those "tube tops" of the 70's...

Oh joy...

Somehow, I don't see that actually happening.

Ah well...maybe all those stars I have been wishing on were actually airplanes...

Happy Jiggle-free Thursday to you.

Now, do not make me laugh..

Lucy said...

I finally had to go Oprah's route with that the brand? I totally disgust myself.

Lucy said... it Spanx? Whatever.

diane said...

So what feels worse a tight big tummy or a loose wobbly tummy? Maybe lots of laughing will tighten up the jiggles. I know how to swim so I don't know why I'm carrying around this spare tyre. It jiggles too.

Vee said...

Stop it! You're making me jiggle! Now a little trip through the lingerie department may be just the's the 21st Century, my friend! Thanks for the laughs...

Charmingdesigns said...

Oh my goodness. That is to funny. How wonderful that you've lost so much!!!! That makes your Jiggles a "Good Thing"! laurie

Jan said...

I am thoroughly impressed with the loss and laughing my jiggly bottom off reading your post! Too funny! Unless we are one of those crazy exercise people who have a negative body fat index, then at a certain point in our lives there will be some jigglage. : ) Part of life...can't get around it! LOL! Laugh it up and enjoy!

You were kidding, I'm not- I've been 'hired-out' by 'tablescape impaired' friends to help them !!!!!!!!!!!!;)))
Jiggling belly??Oh it is YOU who make me laugh!!!

white o'morn cottage said...

Now mine is doing the jiggle from laughing!

Shari said...

I want to jiggle too, if it can mean I'm losing weight! I want some of those too-big-for-me pants! All I have are the too-tight-for-me variety! You are doing so great, girl! This jiggling - it's a good thing! Maybe just a bit of spandex during the transition phase - that should do the trick!!

Hi ...

Thank you so much for leaving such a sweet note on my Southern Lagniappe blog. I'm so glad it led me to your delightful blog.

Your "Jiggles" post was hilarious, and I was so glad the story about Owen had a happy ending. I'll be back to read some more soon.

Hey, I know that feeling! I actually found a t-shirt type holder inner in Boscovs called Teez-hers. It holds the jiggles still but it's kind of hard to get on and off so that is a blog in itself. Trying to get out of a girdle type t-shirt!!!
Jiggling all the way!
38 lbs is amazing! I am down 14 lbs now but have reached that plateau for the last few weeks. :(

Laurie and Chris said...

38lbs!!!! That is so great!! Congratulations!

Julie said...

You are too funny, lady! Uniboob - that's a good one. And why not make you laugh? Laughing is good exercise!

Betty said...

I'm so happy for you and your 38-pound loss!! Jiggle on, my friend!
