I have gone down another size and really need some new clothes, but I've been sick and haven't been able to get out and peruse the thrift stores. Yesterday I had some unexpected fun. For my first foray out since Christmas, I called a friend and arranged to meet out for lunch. We had a great healthful meal and then I asked her if she would like to come window shopping at a local department store with me. I just wanted to check sizes not to buy. I'm buying thrift store stuff till I get to goal.
She was game so we took off. Very soon into the shopping expedition, I found out that she had always secretly wanted to be a clothes designer and absolutely loved shopping. I went into the dressing room with a few things I had found and she immediately took off after asking my favorite colors and what sizes I thought I wore. We spent the next hour playing dress up. She brought in blouses, pants, skirts, purses, jewellery and shoes. Her styles were so much more fun than how I usually dress. She even brought in a undergarment which pulled in my upper and lower abdominal skin folds ( I know, TMI lol) . Wow, I am looking good! After we finished she said that she would come with me on a shopping expedition when I am ready to really buy some new clothes. I can't wait!
