Default "But you're not a plus size!"

I had a personal mini-triumph moment today. I was at the gym and I asked a girl where she got her really cool pants. She said she got them at blah blah blah store and I asked her if she knew if they carried plus sizes. She gave me this confused up-and-down stare then said "I think they do, but you're not a plus size". Now, perhaps her gauge of sizes on people is a bit skewed, but her comment made me so giddy inside that I sailed through my workout!

How long has it been since you last bought clothes? I ask because I started at 201# and right about your weight I walked into a plus sized store and was proptly told thier regular sized store was next door. Turns out while some stuff in the plus size store fit, for the most part everything was too big.

It's been a while, actually. I'm still wearing my Lane Bryants, but the 18s that fit perfectly last summer now need belting! I actually have mostly knit pants (yep, even dress pants) that I bought while I was gaining weight so they should be good for another 20lbs or so (it's amazing how fabrics can stretch!). Once I get down around 160 I think I'm going to go to the mall, walk right past LB, and go buy myself a new mini-wardrobe at NY&co.

And thanks for the support, everyone! This place is truly the best!
