So over lunch I went to the mall. I pulled my courage up by the bootstraps and went to Old Navy to try on jeans.
Please remember my current dilemma. I have Old Navy jeans from 2002, size 20, that won't even button. But Liz went in the other day and tried some on, and they fit...so she her success encouraged me to go and find some too!
They dont carry 20 jeans in short, but I was willing to get them tailored if need be. I grabbed a couple of different styles, one pair of khakis, and a few shirt in XXL. Off to the dressing room, which is like a war zone bc this is the last weekend before school starts, and there were teens, and tweens everywhere showing their clothes to their moms. Then the moms would tsk tsk, and they would argue, and the world started to spin, and I had a flashback moment to shopping with my mom. Good times.
So, back to reality. I tried on the 20's, pulled them up, silent prayer that they would at least button. They were all toooo big! hahahaa! Especially in the waist. The XXL tops were too big also. So, out I go again and grab some 18's. Fit great in the waist, little snug in the calves. Oh well, didnt care! The 20's were too big and that is all that mattered!
I skipped to Victoria Secrets and grabbed a pair of XL panties. Tried them on in the dressing room. They fit!
And so it is my friends, so it is!
Also, I was staring at my ticker today. My mind doesnt really register the number 235. When I go to write my weight down somewhere, or when I say it aloud, I say 253. It is amazing to me that I am now closer to 200 than 300.
