Oh I totally feel you on needing longer tops. Not only am I tall, but I have pretty big ol boobs..ugh. So a top that might look long on the hanger, rides up and shows my tummy. not cool!

WOW!! Look at all the new folks!!! YAYYYYYY!!!

I agree with the OLDNavy for tank shirts... And I find Walmart carries a brand called 725 that seems to work for me.

Now what about shirts with sleeves? I have monkey arms. If I get a size that should FIT.. it fits in the body but not the arms.. so then I have to go UP a size just to get it to fit in the arms.. but it's HUGE every where else!!

Oldnavy.com has everything in tall sizes--shirts, dresses, pants, skirts, jackets, sweaters,...

I wish they would carry tall sizes in the store. I hate having to pay for shipping!

I don't buy anything unless there is free shipping AND a code. But I am super cheap.

I'm taking part in the Vixen Valentine's challenge on the 100lb board, so my goal for Sept is to lose about 8lbs

Well, I'm going to kick it in high gear and try to be 240 this month. Its so annoying, lately I see that people that weigh a lot less than me are able to lose 10 lbs in a month and I'm struggling at times to let go of like 5. So I weighed in at 250.2 today and I think I'm retaining some salt, so I will be drinking lots of water to flush that out and hop on the scale again tomorrow morning.

My original goal was to be 288 by Labor Day, but then I got really sick and had to kind of put that on hold.

Hi everyone!

I've been reading this thread for a while, but I don't think I've actually posted anything yet...lol


I'm 5'8 and down to 222 lbs now, but I still have a ways to go...
I've loved following this thread...because I definitely understand what everyone is talking about.


Even with old navy's tall sizes, I can't wear their shirts. I have VERY short legs, so sometimes regular jeans or work out pants are too long, and I have to buy the short ones....but my torso is so long that I can BARELY find shirts long enough. Through high school I just wore hoodies all the time so that it didn't matter if my shirt was long enough, but I can't really do that anymore. My torso is so long that if I EVER want a one piece swimsuit, I have to special order it so it's long enough. It really sucks =/

I don't work out in public, just at home...when no one else is in the room....so I generally wear pj pants and undershirts....but I DO have one work out top I got at walmart (thats too short) and a couple pairs of yoga pants that I love.


Buying clothes is just miserable for me. >.<

Oh, to have narrow feet!

I "normally" wear a 10W shoe...have since I was about 16. I say normally because, like clothing, it depends on the brand...Italian brands, IME, run the smallest, so my Enzos are 10-1/2 regulars (but then they're like butta anyway!).

Now, let's complicate things a bit...not only do I wear a wide, but 1)my right foot is almost a half-size larger than my left, 2)I have deeeeeeeeeep arches, and 3)my 2nd toes are freakishly long (so no round toe shoes for me!).

Anyone wanna see that and raise???



Sherry

ETA...

My arms are very long as well, so I don't own anything at all with long sleeves...not even a coat (but then it really doesn't get cold enough for a coat here, so...).

'K...I'm finished now.

DCHound, I love you avatar!

Hotsplashes, enjoy your tomatoes. I have two dwindly grape tomato plants that have a total of 25 tomatoes (yes, twenty-five) - that is if they all ripen. Now don't forget those are grape tomatoes (and I am talking SMALL grapes here) LOL. So far I had 2 and they were good but in general it was barely worth buying the plants. I suck when it comes to pot gardening. I really don't have a spot that would have enough sun all day.

Hello to all newcomers! It's exciting to see more tall girls (although I myself barely make the cut). I usually complain that all the gym tank tops are too LONG - I have a shorter torso but longer legs. I just bought a ton of cotton racerback tank tops at Suzy Shier (but I don't know if that's a Canadian store only) - they usually have a sale at the end of the summer - 3 for $10. Woohoo! But I also bought the same ones 2 for $15 (earlier in the season). I like 100% cotton. Their medium size fits me like a glove and they are not too long (for me, that is).
Just the other day, I tried on a gym tank top (also racerback) at Old Navy but it was WAY too long so I guess you taller ladies should check them out. I would guess the tank top was at least 6-7" below waist? Sorry, I wasn;t paying much attention, it didnt fit me well and it was too long but otherwise I liked and would have purchased it if it fit me. I think it was $17.50 (but that's Canadian, it will be likely $10 in the States).

Welcome to all the new posters!!

And such great avatars! I love the Siamese Krazy Kittie!

The weather here is keeping my tomatoes from ripening quickly. But I am getting a few every few days.

I'm not feeling well today. Bad headache which in turns makes me nauseaus. I can never spell taht word!
