Denial is when your reality does not sync with what is too obvious to everyone else. Unfortunately, I’m the one on the denial end about my weight gain. Therefore, these are friendly hints to my upsizing.
Hint 1. When I got a “double take” glance as to how I looked in a size small shorts.
Hint 2. After the “double take” glance, you know they are talking about it but won’t dare say it in front of my face.
Hint 3. As I jogged in my small shorts, the material in the crotch area bunches up and slowly looks like a raggedly looking bikini.
Hint 4. I constantly have to unbunch the material from my crotch area, hoping its not too obvious.
Hint 5. Chaffing.
Finally what was obvious hit me, I quit being in denial. I rushed to the store for larger shorts.
