I'll take 10!
And, you have actually identified the real problem. It is not that I am getting bigger, it is that my pants are shrinking. They should make those pants better.
You're fantastic! I'll head to the miter box and start working on your "order!"
The genesis of the Pizza Pants Stick was exactly what you have pointed out. I postulated the geometry of my pants, my diet, and activity -what was the cause?!!:
1) I must be getting fatter
2) but wait - my other pants fit fine - the same size I've worn for 10 or more years (denial?)
3) I'm going to measure the actual circumference of my waist - then measure a stick 1/2 the circumference - stick it in the wet pants and see what happens. Sure enough. They fit great. It's not my Pizza Belly - it's the pants!
Thanks for the post! Have a great week!
