Wow, that was a little loud. But it's true. I know I am not the first, nor will I be the last to say those words. Truth be told, it isn't always true for me. It really just depends on what article of clothing I am looking for.
The Bane of my existence is shopping for pants, slacks, whatever. I am short 5'2" and round in the middle. I carry all my weight in my belly. SO..pants that fit my waist, dont fit my legs or butt. Or they are too long in the crotch or whatever. I hate wearing pants with elastic in them. (oh yeah, the fat people wear elastic stigma). I have such a hard time finding slacks and dress pants for work that fit me where it counts.
I went shopping today at Kohls (my favorite store) and couldn't find one stinkin pair of pants that would fit right. If they fit my belly, they hang in the mid hip area.
I want to just kick something..
I want soooo bad to lose this weight and be able to wear pants that look decent again.
I want a waistline.

    emoticon you sound like my friend CHEWKEY1942 (Nancy) but she is having a better time finding clothes now that she has lost weight. Still has a hard time with the crotch being to long. The mid rise style fit her better. I'm only 5'3" but my problem is I am long waisted but I am pretty happy with myself at this time of my life. Made my goal weight on my birthday on June 21st this year.

    Hang in there you can do this,

    Ugh, I feel your pain. I don't have much of a butt at all and don't carry much weight in my thighs, so pants NEVER fit right. The only jeans I can find that fit are the plus size Old Navy 'the flirt' ones. I'm in a size 18 and they're the only jeans I found that have a little room in the waistband and not 10 acres of material in the butt. Just because we're big doesn't mean all women have a behind the size of Montana!

    I know the feeling. I'm only 5' 1" and have had troubles all my life. I've lost the weight and now I have bought my pants ing he boys section. I'm getting ready to go to the girls section. I hate to keep trying on clothes and never finding anything that fits right. Keep following the SP plans and you will lose the weight and then maybe you will enjoy shopping. GOOD LUCK!
