2x is too big?


Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Wow! I am in shock! I went to St. George to visit my daughter this weekend, and I forgot to bring a dress. So, I went to Walmart and bought a 2x dress. It is a little too big. When did this happen? It's a great feeling, but it's such a cute dress and they didn't have a smaller size.

I'm up to walking two hours a day now and it feels wonderful! I wear my Skechers shape ups and go for it. I know they proved those shoes don't do what they claimed, but in their defense, they are comfortable for me. It's almost like not wearing shoes most of the time. So, I don't care that they don't do what claimed, I care that they are comfortable for me to get in my exercise.

    I have a pair of sketches too. They are comfortable so I wear them. Spent the money already. Way to go on the two hours of walking.

Changing clothes sizing has been a big challenge for me. I am a clothes alcoholic. I have saved every piece I outgrew over the years. My girlfriend had to come over and say that is way too big in order for me to let it go. Then I dropped two sizes before I moved on out of bigger clothes. I guess it's the money too. I am retired now and I have too many dressy work clothes I will never wear.

So it's a work in progress to accept that I am a smaller person and stop hoarding clothiers.

    That's so awesome! I remember that feeling when I didn't have to buy a 3X (was headed for 4X) tops. Now I can buy a size large. The feeling we get is so great. Congratulations. And as for the shoes, if they feel good to you then wear them! Whatever works.

I LOVE it when the size I think I wear is too big. Weird for my brain, but great for my heart!

    emoticon Congratulations on the Dress!!
emoticon I agree with you about the Skechers Shoes. I never did believe the Claims that they made -Too Good To Be True, in my opinion. But, they ARE Comfortable and -- as long as you don't have Knee or Back issues that make them NOT a Good Idea!! -- I think they do encourage you to move. I love mine, and I am on my 3rd pair!!
