Miserable Shopping Trip

Sunday, July 12, 2015

Today was a reminder as to why shopping at a larger size is difficult. emoticon The clothes are MUCH MORE Expensive. I am a size 22 currently. The variety is not very good. If you are short waisted, the shirts don't always seem to fit right. The capri's for short people look like I am wearing high-waters (I roll them up). There aren't as many cute things available it seems. Right now I have a very hard time spending $40.00 on a pair of capri's. The shirts all seem like boxes on me. The pants just don't fit right. The skirts or dresses are darned near to the floor and on a short person I feel it makes me look that much shorter even if I put heals on.

Reminder as to why I am on this journey to lose weight. Become a better me and be able to find decent deals on clothing.

I have put myself in this position now I can move my way out of it.

    Yes, I know about Sizes 22 & 24!!!! emoticon I think I'm still in a 22 now myself. While Size 22 is Big, at Least I'm Close to 220lbs now, emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I was 246.5lbs in April.... YIKES!!!

    Thank-You GOD!!! Thank-You Sparkpeople!!! emoticon
    (I Shudder to Think What I Might Be, Without SP!!!)

    Mostly I wear STRETCHY Skirts, so I'm still in the same 2X Skirts as I was... But I am Looking Forward to SMALLER SIZES IN THE NEAR FUTURE!!!

    While I'm tall, I just feel like a Lumbering Elephant!!!

    I remember fitting into Size 12 Jeans one October for my Birthday. That was one Spectacular Birthday Surprise!!! (I think it was 2007) emoticon emoticon

    Well, if we Keep Sparking Along, Soon We'll be Out of the 20's & INTO THE TEENS!!!... Whoooo Hooooo!!! & With smaller sizes, as U said... More Selection, at a More Reasonable Prices!!!

    Always GREAT to See U when I check in Daily at the Fitness Streak!!!! I LOVE that we are The COLORFUL DUO THERE!!!! emoticon

    I don't like clothes shopping either. I stopped growing at 11 and everything is too long! I look like a pudgy child in my mum's clothes.

    FYI - Have you tried Goodwill, Salvation Army & other 2nd hand stores? I have found some expensive clothes at these places that were a great bargain. I LOVE finding a bargain!

    Just a thought till you meet your goal.
