The Dreaded Shirt
Friday, February 08, 2013
So even though I’ve hit a weight-loss plateau (and so early on in the game… it’s killing me!) I’m happy to say that I can still find joy in the little things.
Does anyone remember my story about the huge hissy fit I threw at my closet? Well, I did. And it was all (okay… mostly) because of this one shirt. I put it on and the buttons were straining, and the sleeves were too tight, and you could see the lumps on my back from where my bra was cutting in… I generally looked like a stuffed sausage; and I was mad.
Well, I put the shirt on again the other day and what do you know… it fits!
Okay, maybe it’s not the most amazing fit ever… but I’m comfortable in it and it’s leaps and bounds better than the day of my apocalyptic throw down with my closet.
Also, its sister shirt (so called because I bought them the same day, at the same store, in what I thought was the same size) still doesn’t look right. But I did get it buttoned! (Yes, I tried it on too. What can I say? I’m a glutton for punishment.) If I can get into sister shirt I will be thrilled beyond belief!
Oh yes… and the slacks I’m wearing in the picture above…? They are getting loose! Not super loose… but enough that I have to tug them up after sitting and sometimes while walking. It’s partially because they are due for a wash, but I can’t help but feel that they fit better too!
Feeling more confident every day!
