In light of my last post, I asked my Mom to help me with my "wardrobe issues". So after I tried on all my work pants, she ripped and pinned and pulled and tweaked. I was left with four pairs of pants that can be altered out of ten pairs. Then she scolded me for buying pants that were too big. That was my habit--I felt like a big fat pig so I dressed like one--frumpy!
After that, I decided to make a trip to Goodwill. My niece came with me. As we were leaving, Mom gave her stern instructions to not allow me to buy anything larger than an 18. An 18! I cannot wear an 18!
I found some pants to try on, disregarding the sizes making sure to include size 18. After all, I was a size 24/26, and yes, I have lost weight, but I was betting I would NOT fit into size 18!
Well, I know you have already figured out the end of this adventure! I walked out with 2 size 18 pants and an XL shirt! The pants are a smidgen too tight but in a couple weeks they will be fine!!!! I WEAR SIZE 18 PANTS! HOOO-LEEEE COW!!!!!!!
Moral of the story? Listen to your Mom! Most of the time,she's right!
