One of my favorite things any day of the week is going to lunch and doing a little shopping with my BFF,Leslie. And we got to do that very thing on Tuesday. It was GREAT, as usual!
After I finally got dressed to go that is. And that was a feat unto itself.
Most of you know that I've been on a weight loss journey that quickly turned into a lifestyle change for both Hubs and myself. And those of you who have lost weight before know how interesting it can be when your clothes get a bit too big for you. Overnight.
I found this out Tuesday. While getting ready to enjoy a girls afternoon out.
I love to wear capri pants. And I have a few pairs that I like and chose one of the black ones for our outing.
When I wore these pants before this last loss of 79 lbs., they zipped and buttoned but they were tight. I always envisioned the button flying off and putting someone's eye out across the room (just like the commercial). Tuesday, this was not an issue. As a matter of fact, when I went to button them, the button hole and button flew right past each other in warp speed. Too big.
No problem, I thought. My rear is still plenty big to hold them up! And, should they fall to my ankles, Leslie will tell me and I'll pull them up before anyone else notices.
I zipped and buttoned the pants, let go and down they went. All the way to my ankles. Crap.
Next pair- black, capri, drawstring. No problem, right? Wrong.
When I wore these pants last year, I never once was able to use the drawstring because when I donned the pants the only thing left of the drawstring were the two knotted ends. This time I had to use the drawstring which ended up tied in a bow that hung to my knees- ok that's an exaggeration, but still...
Anyway, the pants stayed up but looked very much like a pair of clown pants. Crap.
Luckily, the day was quite cool (comparatively speaking) and I was able to wear a pair of long pants that fit.
This went a little quicker. After trying on a couple of shirts that have scooped necks that fell off my shoulders, I went with a shirt that fit tightly last year. This year it slips right down my torso, but stays on my shoulders. SUCCESS!
I decided to wear a pair of shoes I have NEVER been able to put my fat feet into.
They slid right on and, with my first step, flew right off. I couldn't keep them on my feet. Crap.
This happened with nearly every single shoe I tried to wear.
Yes, I've been losing weight. Yes, I knew my clothes would become to big at some point. But COME ON, even the shoes?!
After lunch we went to Rack Room.
I bought shoes. Next time, pants.
Have a great weekend y'all!
