First Shopping Trip Post-op

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!

  1. Although at first it looks like your shopping trip was a disaster, at least you had finished what you came there for. Old Navy and Target should have good variety of clothes to choose from. Good thing there are other establishments to choose from. Shopping should be fun to do especially for girls.
