Wearing Someone Else's Clothes, and Nerves

Monday, July 25, 2011

I am about 25-30 pounds down from where I was last summer. I"m not a clotheshorse at all, but I like to look pretty when I can. I have some favorite tops from last year, and I keep wearing them. Suddenly, as I adjusted the wide neckline for the thousandth time, I realized: It's too big. It has a deep, wide neckline, and I keep having to sort of toss the shoulders back so I don't show my bra in front.

It is probably 2-3 sizes too big. All the new clothes I bought for THIS summer are also too big. I never ever buy anything that actually touches my belly (if I get a tank top, I make sure that it doesn't hug my belly at all). Even the white linen capris I bought (that have elastic in the back) are sagging ridiculously. I can't keep my keys or phone in the pockets or they will just fall off. Funny thing? I just bought all these clothes in June. They were big when I bought them and I didn't even realize it.

I am wearing someone else's clothes! My old self. Before I cared enough to eat well and exercise.
When will I feel comfortable enough in my own skin to buy things that fit? Soon? I hope so.

I need to get back on the Wii and weigh myself. I did well last time -- down a couple pounds. I don't think I've gone up, but I do hate surprises if they aren't good, you know? And that murtherfarkin' little person on Wii always says, "Oh!' like it is so surprised that I'm so heavy. I want to kick that little thing. And it says, "Measuring, measuring, measuring...." Ug. I am afraid of a fictional person. How sad is that?

    I hate the wii for weighing. Especially the part where it says "you're obese". Yup...I know that thanks for announcing it.

    Weigh to go on losing (get the pun...haha) Now go buy some sexy clothes !
