Went shopping for shirts yesterday.
I really need some.
I had my favorite shirt on a couple of days ago and my husband just looked at me and said "huh....please don't wear that, it just hangs there and it's really not flattering."
It's because it's what I called my comfy "fat" shirt from when I weighed 250lbs,so yeah it's a little big,but comfy. And I liked the color.
I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to be able to shop in the "normal" size department at Reitmans.
I got 2 XL sweaters and even one Large.
When I lose or gain weight, I put my clothes in the attic,since I have enough place, and I learned the hard way not to get rid of my clothes when I change size.
I know a lot of people say to get rid of your old clothes, but being a binge eater and chronic yo-yo dieter, I learned that it's cheaper to go shop in my attic for whatever size i'm at at the moment.
It would be ideal for me to lose the weight and keep it off, but reality is, I was never able to do it.
I was happy to get a couple of pair of jeans out of the attic again when I started losing this time, but I got rid of most of the shirts,because they were really old and pretty ugly.
I kept a few,but most of them were blah!
So now,the women that does not like shopping for clothes, is forced to go shopping.
But I didn't really mind yesterday. The clothes were on sale and I was in a good frame of mind so I didn't mind looking at myself in the mirror.
Funny isn't it how when I lose weight,I like to look at myself in the mirror,but when I gain weight,I hate looking in the mirror.
The funny part is, I weight the same,but 200lbs going down never looks the same as 200lbs going up.
Anyhoo. I'm waiting till have a 50 lbs loss to update my photos(just a couple of pounds away!). I really should have done it at 30lbs and 40lbs, but I kind of forgot.
Have a nice day!
