Clothes Shopping! Size that I didn't expect!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I needed to buy new pants for work today and so I went to Lane Bryant. Now, yesterday at work, I had SQUEEZED into a size 22 pair of jeans... and this is the mystery of being a woman... I can do that and then the VERY next day go shopping and buy a pair of size 18/20 dress pants! I went to grab a size 18/20 top and it was BIG on me! I actually had to have the saleslady grab me a.... OMG... could it be??? Yes, a size 14/16 top! Well, I think us women will understand, but I haven't seen that SIZE ANYTHING since my early 20's (I'm 44 now) and so I bought 4 tops! I only went for pants. Oh yeah, bought 2 new bras, too! Smaller, as well! Can you believe it?????

I'm just thrilled! I just had to share in my excitement! I'm down to 113 lbs lost as of a couple of days ago. Now, I can say that I FINALLY have UNDER 100 lbs left to lose! Actually, I'm shooting for 165-175 as my goal. I'm 5'10" I made myself a mini goal to reach 120 lbs lost by Christmas and I think I'll do it!

Having such a great time getting dressed these days... here is my favorite outfit that I bought today... pants and sweater/top.

    That looks cute and you have done a fantastic job! I think though, you could have gotten an even smaller shirt, and maybe pants too!! I know, I still have trouble with that also. DH is constantly saying, why don't you buy something that fits you rather than hangs on you! He even said that before I started losing weight. It is just hard to buy anything that doesnt give me wiggle room :) So while it is hard for me to take my own advice, it is easy to see it with someone else. I think you are smaller than you give yourself credit emoticon

Regardless, you look great!

    The only downside of losing weight/inches is easily to get persuade to buy more new clothes LOL

Congrats on your new size, WooHoo!

  that is the best bit about weight loss! after years of dreading going into change rooms (not only because hated what I saw but because would be forced to realise I had gained more than I wanted to admit).... Now I love it as am always having to ask for a size smaller than I expected (only do shopping about twice a year)

    To be quite honest I bet you could've bought a Smaller top than that! It looks great but you should buy something special that highlights your new form (I know winter isn't the time for skin tight but you look GREAT). If you got it Flaunt it!
