It was not a "firing on all cylinders" day for me today. But I did manage to squeeze some lemon juice for the lemonade of what could have easily been a wasted day.

Yesterday I sucked it up. (in more ways than one.)

I put my fear aside, and got a flu shot yesterday. Then, last night, I drank too much Sauvignon Blanc, and stayed up way too late with E.

After gimping sorely out of bed at about noon, I fired up the coffee pot and met with fuzzily conceptualizing the grocery list and remembered that I HAD to go to Kohl's today to engage my 15% discount coupon that came with my paycheck yesterday as a "valued business customer." I've been holding off on getting new support for the girls and the cheeks, until this annual sale time came.

* I HATE trying on bras *

Loathe it with incredible anti-passion. It used to involve so much effort of seeking out the best lift and support mechanism of 4 pronged bridge-like support beams of fortitude. I haven't bought new bras since this past spring prior to my weight loss and the girls have been chiding me of late for my lack of support.

After perusing the racks of major sales of Simply Vera Wang, and Daisy Fuentes, Elle, etc, I met with some Pay-Dirt-Cheap Sonoma cords. @ 18.99 a pop, I SCORED 3 pair of awesome pants in black, brown and gray. Cords are my go-to staples in winter, and I know that my old staid size 14-16 will not work for me now, and cord time has officially descended with the turning of the leaves and the new chill in the air. I grabbed 10's and 12's and was So Happy that the 10's fit perfectly.... therefore...

I met with a bit more intuitive feeling of my girth loss, since I never measured myself before joining SP, as I was in denial and really did not want to meet with my numbers.

I perused the Vanity Fair bras that typically are my faves, and I usually try on MORE than I care to mention, but today.. (YES) I had an intuitive hunch of what my new size was, and LO and BEHOLD, the numbers were SMACK ON. First bra I tried on, I hit PAY-DIRT COMFORT and the Girls are Still Rejoicing within their new found support x 2 @ 50% off PLUS my 15% discount.

2 inches of girth and 1 cup size lost made Lynne a happy validated Sparked Fae.

I also addressed the falling-down panty issue much to my happiness and relief.
HUMBLING=PULLING UP PANTIES while walking down the big hall at work. 3 new pairs of Jockey Comfort fit acquired.


4 new tops that were DIRT CHEAP and SWEET and smaller than usual and highly colorful added to my windfall today.



This was SWEETER than CHOCOLATE!!!

    Raising my cup to the new found support for the girls, the shrinkage in all other departments and the success of a great day of hunting for bargains.

    The best is the feeling one gets is not having to deal with the IDS (Inching Downward Syndrome) panty issue. :) Good day all around... all around!

    Hmm... I think I still think the right kind of chocolate is still pretty sweet though. Might be tempted for a bit, but would go for the great haul of items instead.

    emoticon great shopping day. I, too, hate bra shopping and vow to go get fitted for a good bra before Thanksgiving (I hope I'm giving myself enough time).
    Isn't it great to find yourself inches smaller?

    Excellent score on the shopping!!

    I too am a hater of bra shopping. LOATHE IT! I have do the sports bra thing, and I am procrastinating big time! But now that my ankle is feeling better, it is time.

    Glad you were able to score some awesome deals and see the benefits of all of your labor!

    Enjoy all of your new found treasures with joy!

    Lynne....I had a similar day Friday. Went to Kohls because I had a 15% off coupon and I needed new bras. I also have not purchased new bras since I lost weight, and things were getting seriously ridiculous in the support department. I'm glad you had an easier day than usually trying on bras, and the cords will certainly be comfortable this winter!

    You are so FUN! I feel like I had a play day complete with lots of giggling in the lingerie department.

    I hate to spend good money for under garments! So today I bought a new black top and slacks. The sales were fine today and I bought at Penney's--unusual. emoticon
