Saturday Centus, Tight Jeans

This is Saturday Centus . The prompt must be used word for word somewhere in the story on not more than 100 words.The prompt is highlighted. For complete rules see:http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com.
Tight Jeans
Lana tugged the zipper up in her jeans. Was the denim tighter? She looked down and saw the slight pooch that had been the cradle for her babies, and then she turned to face the mirror. Lana ran her palms down her thighs. No, they’d always been snug she sighed with relief.



Today was celebration. It was the 11th anniversary of loosing her weight. She was going out to dinner for a real treat-dressing on her salad, butter on her potato and real dessert, maybe even a brownie! She knew tomorrow would bring her routine again, but tonight, she would party!

Boy, I wish I had it as together as Lana does!

As for your website, when I clicked on the link at Jenny's to visit earlier today, it took me straight to Blogger, like I was going to sign in for my blog. Have you tried just redoing the link again?

... and a steak, medium rare and grilled to perfection. Sorry, inserting my own cravings into your story! Loved your use of the prompt, and I loved the line "the slight pooch that had been the cradle for her babies". Perfect! Kat

I so wish I was her. I guess from reading the other comments a lot of us wish were LOL. Great take on the prompt.

LOL! I have such respect for people who can lose weight and keep it off. That's always been one of my failed struggles. Great take on this week's prompt, though, very clever indeed! A toast to you! (Yeah. Any reason for me to drink eggnog or a milkshake!)

I was pre-pregnancy thin for a while. It is highly over-rated!

I'm with Tom. An eggnog toast to the successful Miss Lana.

The Saturday this Centus went live was my husbands and my 11th wedding anniversary. This little story was a perfect anniversary gift.

Thank you for linking.

I need to take lessons from Lana on how to succeed at losing weight.

Sigh...
