So this blog comes on the verge of several emotions I have gone thru this past week..
Last Monday, I weighed in at 242.0 (up nearly 3 pounds..)
Today, I weigh in at 240.2 (down 1.8 pounds).. That's awesome..
REWIND... Let's go back to this Saturday..
Me & my hubby were talking.. He was saying that I needed to go buy me some clothes & he said "you never go buy yourself any clothes & that I should try other clothes store." I broke down in TEARS... He will never understand the pain or struggle I go through just to buy a nice pair of pants or cute shirt..
I told him that it's so difficult to find clothes at good price.. I told him that I hate getting the stares from people when I hand the dressing room attendant "Pants size 22" or "Size 2X" top.. Or to see people who stare in my cart & judge me by the size on the top of the hangers.. Or I hate the feeling of shopping the "Plus Size Section" in the clothing store; why can't all the size be together, why must the "Plus size clothes" be in another section with only 2 rows of clothing???
Why must plus size clothing only coming mainly in black, navy or gray pants??? Why don't we have the same options that smaller clothing options have for variety of colors & choices??? I don't want to have to wear only dark clothes, I want to have clothes full of color & at the same price as women under size 12.
Prime example, Old navy was having a coat sale for $25 for everyone EXCEPT PLUS SIZE COATS??? The plus size coats were $48 dollars??? Why are we treated differently from women who wear clothes size 2 to 14... I just want to be able to go into any department store & just find great clothes at a great prices that every other woman can under size 14..
I'm so tired of being in a box, being limited on what clothing options I can buy & wear.. It's so not fair that we have pay double or triple the price for nice clothing.. It just sucks being a plus size woman..
UGGGGGHHHHHH.... I just needed to VENT & get this off my chest.. The battle & struggle of a plus size woman striving to be in a smaller world to be seen as equal & get fair prices...
Thanks for listening & for any comments that you post..
