Default WHOA! NSV's AHEAD!

Went shopping today. My work pants looked like MC hammer pants they were so big. I looked like a clown. My job requires you to be fashionable and put together. augh. I"m so broke, lol.

But, I went and got a new pair of pants from lane bryant. I have gone down 3 sizes from my high weight! I'm a size 20 now. and I wear right fit RED's. The lady was like, "you are a red!!!!" Cuz I told her someone said i was yellow, then someone else said I was blue (TOTAL difference, wtf?!)

Anyhow, they fit so great, my BUTT even looks nice! No saggy butt and no baggy thights! I have a great shape, even if it is large, lol, I have a hard time finding clothes that SHOW IT OFF. haha.

I now even fit into the 'novelty' 42 DDD's (which tend to run smaller than the regular bras at lane bryant.) There is a plunge there that even the lady working was like "Wow, I'm not being weird, but you have great cleavage! Wish I did!" lol. funny. :P

but, it's novelty and has these seams and you can see it through the shirt so clearly it's a bra only for the 'bedroom'. So, didn't want to waste the money even though it was AMAZING!

I let bf peak through the door though. haha.

She said my old big pants made me look 20 lbs heavier. I also got a new shirt. Still size 22 in most shirts.

I generally run a size bigger in shirts than I do in pants. So, slowly but surely.


Also, my TOM is starting to go away. I think in a day or two I might have a whoosh, if not at least a nice loss. I FEEL great.

I thought hammer pants were still in. Especially the shiny gold ones. And I really dont see that there is anything wrong with them. Seriously. Name one thing.
