success and failure

My success is that I can fit a size 16. I went to Dress Barn today to see if I can buy some clothes for work. I got into them but boy did they look not so pretty. I mean call the Pillsbury Doughboy I found his rolls. My stomach just pops out!
After trying on a pair of pants 3 shirts and a skirt I put most back but the shirt. All I really need is a few more pounds and I am sure 16's will fit better but for now why even bother buying something I wouldn't wear.
The failure besides the fact I can't really wear them comfortably is that my closet has like nothing that fits. My husband teases me and says well now you can just say Ennie Meenie because you only have 2 choices to wear.
My hopes were that I would be able to buy a whole new wardrobe by the time school starts which is now only 3 weeks away. I don't know what I am going to do, because I refuse to wear the size 22 's I wore all last year with safety pins and big belts. And the 2 18's I have are too big that I can take them off without unbuttoning them.
Oh the drama of losing weight.


  1. I just went to SteinMart today and bought a casual dress in a size 14 and some very nice size 16 jeans! Woo hoo, no more plus size clothes! I hope you can find some nice clothes soon.

  2. I hear there's a group on LBT that sends on clothes (Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, I think?). That might be worth looking into before school starts!

    I'm hoping I can shrink into my collection of size 14s (from my last weight-loss "success") before school starts. For some reason, I don't have hardly any clothes in my current size 16, so I'm in my baggy t-shirts and two pair of thrift-store size 16 jeans for now. I don't want to spend the money on a whole new wardrobe until I'm VERY close to goal.

  3. boy can i relate!! i have always disliked buying clothes but it really sucks when you are in between sizes...lets see so i have the option of wearing something tight that shows the dimples on my ass or i can wear something loose that looks like i'm carrying a load in my drawers lol. i'm voting for elastic till i loose all my weight lol.
