I went shopping yesterday and actually made a purchase instead of trying things on like last time. My sizing is all over the place. Obviously because sizes vary, but also because I don't know what size I am. Ron "insisted" I try things on that I swore wouldn't fit. They actually did fit. Even though they don't fit perfect right now they will eventually fit. He says I need to think of the future not just today. One of the tops I bought was a tank top in a 2X... I am still stunned. Even a dress that said it was an 18 (which I highly doubt it since it fit). I am shocked that I am thinner. Did any of you feel this way when you first noticed that you were getting smaller? I know most of it is pre-surgery weight loss, but I am still amazed that I have shrunk and am continuing to shrink. I know have a few bits of clothes that actually fit and I feel comfy in. Hopefully that is enough to hold me over for a few months or so.
The big shocker of the day was when I tried on a mini skirt in a 24 and it fit! Yes, I did buy it. The second I walked out of the fitting room the sales lady said that I looked good. I even tried on some jeans this time since I could move easier this go around. they were from Lane Bryant and they were their Fit Right (???) brand and they were a 22 and I thought they should have been tighter. I am an apple shape and I felt they were too loose around the butt and thigh area. I am stunned that those numbers would even go over my feet and ankles let alone my body.
A better me is coming out one pound at a time.
Have a great day all!
