Big surprise at WI with that down 1.4, I was completely mentally prepared for a stayed the same. So I'm 2.2 away from 35lbs down. Which would be next sticker at meetings...I want that sticker!!!
Frustrating day spent trying on what seemed to be thousands of dress pants that were all wrong. Thought I found a style that worked...none in my size. Funny thing is lots in sizes bigger than I need, that never happened when I was those sizes then only size 2 would be available. Found other style that could work, it had cuffs on the legs which don't work for my short self but were long enough that I could cut those out and re hem. But alas this style had butt flaps also knowns as back pocket flaps, completely wrong on anyone pretty much. After my 10th store I started to see everything I didn't like looking back at me in that mirror so I called it quits and went home. I'm considering going back for a second round tomorrow.
The stores were all ugly with that picked over summer/spring stuff and a wee bit of fall stuff in. I even went to Winners, I hate Winners. I hate scavenger hunt shopping, my years in retail have made me impatient. I know what I want so just let me buy it. Are pants with a flat front and straight legs and not low low rise too much to ask? I was also on the hunt for tops to go with all the skirts I own that I rarely wear. Most of the skirts are slightly too big but I can get away with it. Could I find any of the colours I needed...of course not. By the time I got to the last store which had a bit of promise I no longer felt like trying things on.
You know that feeling you get when you're trying to grow out your hair and your in that shaggy phase? I feel shaggy, between sizes and half way to where I want to be. It's taken me forever to get to where I am and I am not going to let it take forever for me to get to goal...that's a promise.
The dress pant adventure continues...perhaps an update tomorrow :)
