The Dreaded Shirt
Friday, February 08, 2013
So even though Iíve hit a weight-loss plateau (and so early on in the gameÖ itís killing me!) Iím 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 (okayÖ 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 inÖ 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 knowÖ it fits!
Okay, maybe itís not the most amazing fit everÖ but Iím comfortable in it and itís 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 doesnít look right. But I did get it buttoned! (Yes, I tried it on too. What can I say? Iím a glutton for punishment.) If I can get into sister shirt I will be thrilled beyond belief!
Oh yesÖ and the slacks Iím wearing in the picture aboveÖ? They are getting loose! Not super looseÖ but enough that I have to tug them up after sitting and sometimes while walking. Itís partially because they are due for a wash, but I canít help but feel that they fit better too!
Feeling more confident every day!
