Halloween has come and gone. It is my favourite holiday because I don't feel terribly out of place in public. I simply embellish my normal wear.
The day before halloween I was rummaging through a 2nd hand clothing store, there was a fabulous plate for $1.00 handmade and would look great with my current halloween place setting.
-Never send a woman to buy one or two item's. It has something to do with genetics I think-
I thought to myself *I'm going to surprise EvErY OnE and go as a NURSE for the holiday!!!* Women donating there uniforms smart idea! ... smart until I saw the size's
. Nothing that would fit me, pants maybe I could get to my knees, shirts or cloaks - yeah right, suddenly the little cute flower's and other calming cartoons weren't comforting me when I looked like I was in a straight jacket unable to get them past my elbow's!.
Not terribly surprising, the division of clothes beside the nurse's uniform's were maternity clothes. When I started to gain weight 2-3 year's ago, I had purchased one pair of maternity pants, until they became to small. So I looked them over and there were lot's of jean's in large and xlarge. Helllooo, I hadn't worn jean's for almost 3 year's! They were mine!
Wow it felt incredible to be wearing jean's. I guess I am what people refer to as 'volupous', though I'm obese, it balances out still in a very fat hourglass with breast's that enter a room before I do and a bum that remains in the room as I exit, though the fat built alot on my stomach and hip's and finding clothes of any comfort has been difficult.
I'm very happy to have found pants, jeans that fit with comfort! though unhappy they are maternity with no baby on board?! It though gave me esteem to donate my 'someday I will fit in those clothes again' wardrobe away.
Currently, I am happy to be comfortable in clothes, albeit, clothes I do not need, this though has given me some initiative to still continue with my reduction of food intake. In the past year, I have 'maintained' my weight instead of continually gaining - but that is another entry all together!!
Peace Out, and yes, I'm guilty of eating a bag of halloween chips today
