My Bad! It has been way too long. I started my new job on Monday, which has kept me pretty busy. It has been really wonderful though. I didn't realize that I could actually enjoy my work. I have worked from home for the last 5 years...so I had to go shopping since I couldn't wear my pjs to the office. I must say that I was so nervous about trying on clothes. It was the first time in a very long time! After the 20W became too tight, I refused to buy anything else. I had one pair of jeans...tight ass - make your belly hurt - huge relief to take them off pants, 1 "dressy" shirt, and a couple of maternity sized T-shirts (nope...I don't have a baby). Sad right? We started at JC Penny because I didn't want to spend a lot of money, then I realized I didn't want to look like a grandmother, so we moved on to Layne Bryant where NOTHING worked. I was sooo discouraged! Last stop...Old Navy to look at shirts since the pants weren't working out. I decided to be brave and try on a pair of slacks...and they totally fit! THEY FIT!! Yes...they were an 18...but NOT an 18W...and they were roomy! The first piece of clothing I have purchased in 3 years from a store that didn't sell super-sized animal-print bedazzled blouses w/ big-ass bedazzled jeans...a REGULAR store! I will probably frame those bitches.
