Enemies to Friends

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Up until recently, I had enemies. Their name was 'normal-sized bath towels'. Normal-sized bath towels and I hated each other. I hated the way they would barely cover my ample bottom, and they would harass me by falling off at inopportune times. Wherever I would travel, I would bring a bath sheet with me, so I would feel comfortable.

Here's something you need to know about me:


I mean HATE. I will do whatever I can to avoid it. After a shower, I like to wrap up in a towel over my hair and one over my body, slip on my terry bath robe and just relax until I'm dry. My showers are usually short so this is my relaxation time. I hate trying to tug on underwear and bras when my skin is still damp. So I don't.

Just now, as I was getting out of the shower and I wrapped my bath sheet around me, I realized something. Not only was this bath sheet HUGE, but when I was at my Mom's I used a regular sized towel and felt comfortable enough in it to walk from the bathroom to the bedroom. It covered all my bits! No longer do I have to travel with a bath sheet taking up 1/4 of my suitcase. I can now fill that space with more clothes, because I'm SMALLER!


On a side note, I tried to track my sleep with my new FitBit last night. It fell out of the wrist strap at some point and I found it on the floor in the morning. Not sure when it fell out, but I'm going to try again tonight.

The FitBit did eventually register the flight of stairs I climbed yesterday, it just took a while!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

    Hahahaha. I am 100% with you!! I don't have a bathrobe, though, I just lie around in towels hee hee. I can't wait until normal/smaller ones fit well! Exciting!

    I still hate normal size towels - even though they cover me easily (at the moment at least). Something about being wrapped in a very big towel I think brings back a feeling from childhood - and being wrapped by parents in towels after a bath... Well done!

    omg! We must be bathroom twins. I feel the same way about all of that! I really hate getting dressed in the bathroom, and I'd rather just air out so my bra strap doesn't feel all pinchy and weird on damp skin. It just feels like I can't get it to settle in the right place when wet! Regular bath towel= AWESOME! I used to only use the two huge ones we had in the house, or use two to wrap around upper/lower half. Now I can get away with one regular one, too! :D I am still afraid of flashing a little at the bottom, but I can totally tuck and close a regular one without it slipping apart now! That is why I can empathize andbe super happy for you! :D

    I, too, dislike getting dressed in the bathroom.
    Fortunately, I am comfortable with my (ample) nudity...LoL

    My fitbit wrist strap sometimes ends up undone during the overnight, but the device has not escaped the band yet...

    Oh, I was chuckling! I also use bath sheets and still love them, even though they are getting a bit big. I enjoy sitting in the steamy bathroom, wrapped up in my towel, sipping on a hot cup of I can relate! you need to atke advantage of the white sales in January and get you a couple of nice new towels to celebrate!

    I stopped trying to use my Fitbit when I sleep. I always wake up and find it on the floor or somewhere in my bed! lol. Hope you have better luck with it. Other than that I love my Fitbit!

    Wow, great NSV!! I'm sooooooo jealous, I would love to be able to use a normal size bath towel. I use beach towels all the time. {Which unfortunately brings the image of "beached whale" into my mind. Le sigh} You've given me hope of fitting into one someday.

    Great job, and HUGE congratulations!

    That is one of the best non-scale victories I've heard in a long time.
    Go you! Go you!

    Eek! I hate bath towels! I use regular size bath towels for my hair and I use a beach towel to dry off (cover up) and I also detest getting dressed in the bathroom.

    I am glad you made peace with the regular size towels, its a fantastic NSV!
