This is hilarious! I thought only women had that kind of drama on vacation.

You learn something new every day!!!

Sh!t. How am I going to get through this?

I am less concerned with my diet and more concerned with my mental stability...

I am not really a girly girl. I don't spend much time with girls. Generally speaking, they tend to annoy the **** out of me.

I just don't have the patience. They are all lovely girls, two of whom were former roommates. I adore them, I truly truly do. But I have this sinking feeling that I am going to get annoyed and grumpy and just be miserable. At least that is what I am imagining.

At least now, I know I should be able to keep up, not have to take quite so many sit breaks while shopping.

Being the only Plus Size girl sucks as it's not really like I can do a whole lot of real shopping anyway. I get to be the friend to sit with the bags, while everyone tries stuff on. I find clothes shopping with skinnier friends really stressful and depressing. Please tell me how to get through this!!
Before I go anywhere with anyone I like to make sure they understand what I like to do on holiday and what I really don't like to do. If there are 6+ of you and one day you don't want to go shopping with them, do you think they'll make a big deal out of it? If so, maybe you should let them know beforehand you might not be into doing all the things they do and not to get offended if you just want to hang out at the pool or in the room reading. That way, the stress is off, and if you DO end up wanting to go, then they'll be super happy and surprised lol!

I went through one of those weekends last year. I was the fat girl in a bunch of skinny girls (I don't mean to sound disrespectful 'cause after all we all want to be skinny girls eventually!!) but not being able to try out cute clothes or going into stores without a plus size section or not being the one hit on or checked out when together.. just pure sucks!!!
My girl weekend was in Florida so imagine how everyone was flaunting their bikinis n I had a towel wrapped around me the whole time!! The only thing that pulled me through the whole weekend was the fact that I was there for my roomie's bachelorette so I had to show support and also the fact that I had a lot of alcohol that made everyone else seem tolerable!!
There is no easy way to live through it. Just breathe deep, drink a little (if your diet allows you to) and instead of feeling all self conscious and out of place in the store when the girls are trying out clothes, make a mental note of all the clothes that you WILL buy once you reach goal
Hope you have fun drama free weekend silverfire

Who me? I don't have much figured out, I just stumble along. I love 3FC and how we can all share our wisdom!

Silverfire I like the Coach Outlet there. Their purses are marked off from regular stores. Also, every time I have walked in there, they gave me a 30% off coupon at the door. So extra sale. I just haven't found any purses that have called to me there.

You NEED to go to Bass Pro Shop.... So many stuffed animals all over the store (if that's your thing); moose, caribou, 1 polar bear, etc. They also have a cool display of live fish.

I like the brand Lucky Jeans. There's an outlet there. Same with the Disney store - am a sucker for that.

I survived the weekend!!!

It was mostly drama free even. WOOO. I almost had it out a few times with one girl who CONSTANTLY complains about being fat and not fitting into her clothes. I totally understand insecurities, but there is no need to b!tch and moan the whole time to someone who is 75 lbs heavier than you!

I was terribly unimpressed with the clothes shopping in this mall. There is one store that carries plus size and they are all old lady frumpy clothes or uber expensive dresses. Lame. Forever 21 was the worst store I have ever stepped foot in. I don't think I would even go back if they carried things in my size. I was told they have sizes up to 2XL. Nope. Large was the biggest you could find. I went and asked the girl at the store where the plus size section was and she looked at me like I was from mars. Ugh. At that point I was tempted to just sit in the food court and eat while the other girls shopped. (I didn't!)

SweetScrumptious - I went to the coach outlet store, picked up the smallest wallet in the place, looked at the $150 price tag and nearly threw up in my mouth. I dropped it and hightailed it out of there as fast as possible. I will stick to my (what I thought was too much to pay for a wallet) 50 bucks from ebay wallet! lol. I did got to the bass pro shop for a few minutes. Just about bought a LED lightup bolo ball set, but thought better of it and put it back. I didn't even buy fudge, even thought it smelled divine!

All the money I didn't spend at the mall on clothes like I wanted, I spent at Ikea and the bar!

It was a great weekend otherwise though

Woot! I don't really spend money at Cross Irons either. Too much of a drive for me and when I do go, I go for specific things. I hate Forever 21 too, and H&M. Their clothing looks so cheap that it would fall apart.

The only clothing that I like there is Lucky Jeans but right now - that's my "goal" store. I also love the stuff in Pusch - but HIGHLY expensive. Ew.

I did go to Bass Pro tho this past weekend but it was for a purpose. Bought a fishing rod and some bait/gear. Planning to go fishing soon
