Talking So That's What Its Like On The Other Side Of The Store

I am 2 lbs from finally being 200lb which I have not seen since high school. I wasn't gonna go buy any new clothes til I got under 200 but I have an event this weekend and have nothing that fits. So I went to the clothing store and tried on 16 pants in the plus size and OMG I had to go to the other side of the store because the 16's were too big . I haven't seen that side of the store in 15 yrs at least. I was so happy I got teary eyed and the saleswoman looked at me like I was wacko. So I explained which didn't help either because her whole body was the size of my thigh.
So that is a goal I reached sooner then I thought.

I was so used to shopping in the Queen Size section that I automatically went there until a clerk told me I didn't belong there.

LOL...Pants are the only thing I can get on that side since shirts keep getting smaller and smaller. A 2XL now is like an old large. I have large breast so these new cuts of shirts well....just don't cut it. I did find a store that has nice stylish clothes. I'm really into punk style clothes and this store carries alot of them in real woman sizes not all this tight fit stuff.

Oh, that is soooooo cool. Wow, I would've been balling right out there in public too, don't worry about it. Yesterday, I was so excited because I fit into a size 22 (down from 26) and I actually PRAYED before I tried them on.

MoragMunch: congrats on the size 22. Too bad u don't live closer cuz I have tons of clothes that size since thats where I started. Good luck.

I just started a cardio team at my fitness club. there is 4 teams. Its 45 days long and prizes will be awarded to the team and individual with the most cardio. I'm so excited. I've very competitive so I think this will help me stay motivated( at least of the next 45 days..~

Yay! That's awesome! I can't wait till I can go to that side of the store again. I just recently moved into plus sizes...that was part of what motivated me to go onto the diet in the first place.
