I wore clown pants to work today. Seriously, they were so huge on me they were goofy looking. It's been a while since I've worn them, but I thought they were okay when I left this morning, until I got a look at myself in the bathroom mirror at work and realized they looked ridiculous.
So I trotted myself off to the mall at lunch to buy some new khaki's. The offensive pair were a size 8 from Dress Barn. I tried on a pair of Dockers at JCPenney in a size 8, and they were too big and fit funny (the waist was too high). I also tried on a pair of Levi's in a size 8, just to see what size I'd be, and they fit great (didn't buy them, though).
Next stop--J Jill. Every size 6 pair I tried on fit. I decided on a comfy stone colored pair that were on sale. And several size Small 3/4 length sleeve tops in cotton, for the fall season (if it ever gets here).
And my jeans were feeling too big this weekend, so I went down to Old Navy and tried on a pair of 8s in the Flirt style. They fit.
This is unreal. I still have 11 pounds to go until goal. I'm going to end up a size 4 at 145 pounds! It's no wonder there are size 00's now. What else would the truly skinny girls wear? And, please, I'm getting thinner but I am NOT skinny. I'm overweight on the BMI table until I hit 149 pounds.
