A Sweet Reward

Monday, August 12, 2013

About a year ago, I walked by a storefront that had a beautiful swimsuit in the window. I thought it would work well with my shape and wondered if they had it in my size (16). So I went in the store.

The salesperson looked at me and, before I could even ask, said, “sorry, we don’t carry plus sizes here.”


I went home feeling angry and embarrassed, even though I recognized that it was really her (and her store’s) loss. All I could think about was the fact that all she saw when she looked at me was, "too big".

Yesterday, I purchased that same swimsuit, in a size 12, on clearance from that store’s biggest competition. I bought it with money I have made over the last 6 months at, as both a tangible and symbolic reminder of what I can accomplish if I set my mind to it.

And I have to say, it looks frickin' great on me.
