I have been "shopping" in my closet for the past few weeks, and while I have a bunch of pants to get me through going down a few more sizes shirts are a different story. I recently found a pair of nice grey slacks that I had hemmed last week and now look like a whole new pair of pants that fit properly (a size smaller)!
My shirts are now a size too big and are starting to look long and baggy, making me look messy. "The girls" have also been getting smaller and I am now down any entire cup size! While I do not want to spend a lot of money on clothes I will (hopefully) only fit into for a short time I decided it was time to buy a few essentials.
Ran to the mall this morning and while it is not as hot today as it has been I found the mall to be sweltering, almost positive not a single store had any air conditioning on. Went to Old Navy & Target in hopes of catching a good sale on just a few fitted tee's I could wear to both work & the gym. Found shirts that were a decent price but when I tried them one they were all see-through! While I know the saying "You get what you pay for" I was hoping the material would have been a little better than that.
Decided to leave the mall and try my luck at Fashion Bug. As I was walking to my car it started down pouring and I was drenched within 30 seconds. So far my shopping trip was turning into a complete disaster! Was going to head home because at this point I now looked like a drowned rat but figured I was already in the car and head to the store anyway :-) Made out like a bandit! Walked away with 5 shirts all in XL (not the normal 1X or 2X I used to buy) and 3 bra's that were a whole cup size smaller...all for less than $85!!! Thinking I will need to go shopping for a few essentials every 25 lbs without going overboard.
Go back to the doctors on Monday where it is possible I will get my first fill, although I am doing very well without it so I may decide to hold off til I need it. Will update again if I get the fill!
