I was actually intending to do a post on motivation today, but I just need to vent. I absolutely hate clothes shopping. Post tummy tuck/breast lift, I really need new clothes. I had almost run out of clothes after I got to goal, but had been slow on buying new stuff because I knew I was going to have the surgery and didn’t want to buy stuff that might not fit later.
Well, later is here and I have next to nothing that fits me. I used to love wearing really loose T shirts and sweatshirts. I don’t like clothes that are tight, especially around the neck. But, things are getting ridiculous now. When I went to get my hair straightened the other day, the hairdresser told me I need to get some clothes that fit. I was wearing an extra large sweatshirt and, yes, it was way too big.
So, the past few days I’ve been trying to correct things. I ordered a few T shirts and sweatshirts online. These are brands I’ve worn before so I know my size. But, the pants situation is getting dire. I have a couple of pairs of workout pants (well, one of them is a little loose but is barely OK). I have one pair of jeans that fits and that is it. I have one pair of “nice” pants that I can wear if I wear a top that covers the waist, since the pants are too loose.
I’ve been wanting another pair of jeans and thought I would go to Old Navy to get a pair of black jeans. That shouldn’t be difficult. I am now a perfectly average size 10. I don’t like skinny jeans (that whole not liking tight stuff) and I need a short size since my height rounds up to 5’4″. Well. [Read more…]
