Its true. And it wasn’t as miserable as I thought it would be.
In fact, it was actually kind of awesome.Yep I admit it!
I walked into my favorite store, where the ladies know who I am. I always shop there. When they asked what I needed, I told them right out. “I need to buy bigger pants.” We all laughed about it, because I think we all know the pain that goes with that statement, and we’ve all been there.
Seriously, I have been stuffing myself into pants that are too small for several weeks now. Probably about 2 months ago, I found myself with lots of old pants that were falling apart, so I bought new pants. One sizer smaller than the ones that finally gave out.
So I bought these smaller pants, even though they were just a smidge too tight. I thought I’d lose a little weight, and they would fit better.
Well, I didn’t and they didn’t. It just got worse. I was doing great at losing weight, but over the last few months my efforts have come to complete stop. So my pants got even tighter. And when it comes to these kinds of things, I am….1- too stubborn to admit defeat, and 2- too cheap to buy more pants so soon. And I am also not one of those smart people who saves receipts.
So anyway, on Saturday, I had enough of all these tight pants, digging in, leaving red marks all over my hips. My sister and I had been out shopping all day, so we stopped off at my favorite store and got me some bigger pants!
It was glorious. For one, my sister was there to wrangle my kid, so I wasn’t chasing after her or having re-fold all the clothes she would inevitably throw on the floor. Second of all, because I was actually trying on pants that fit I had options! I think I tried on 6 pair total, and picked out two that fit perfectly.
And here’s the biggest surprise of all! My new pants are “plus size”. I’m this wonderful size where I can fit the smallest plus size, and its actually kind of fun. I like having options from both sides of the store! There was this fun shirt, that I just loved but could only find a small, but they also had it in plus size so I won anyway! (For the record, I didn’t buy the shirt because I’m on a budget. need>wants=adulting.)
I’m loving these pants so much I don’t even want to loose weight because then they wont fit! The plus size are cut just a tad different so they sit a little higher on my hips but are still the low-rise type that I think are most comfortable for my body type. Which is apple shaped…or maybe potato. Oh and they make my booty look good. I’ll spare you that picture.
The moral of the story here is….buy pants that fit.
