I Need Patience…Or Liposuction

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jan 25, 2008 in My Adventures in Dieting |

The good news – I lost another pound this week (for a total of 13 so far) and two inches from my hips and an inch from my waist in all.

The bad news – I’m still fat.

While I was at the mall today buying some boots (that’s the great thing about buying shoes – they ALWAYS fit!), I decided to tempt fate and try on some clothes for work.

First of all, it has been SO long since I have purchased work clothes, I felt like one of those fashion-impaired women on What Not to Wear (Friday nights on TLC if you’ve never seen it).

I seem to have forgotten how to put a real outfit together – you know – something other than jeans and a sweater (my current fall/winter wardrobe) or jeans and a T-shirt (my spring/summer wardrobe). I was literally just walking around in circles around the displays and mannequins – I’m sure store security thought I was some sort of manic shoplifter.

But I did finally find two pairs of pants that I absolutely loved in the size I thought I was and went to try them on. They didn’t fit. Not only didn’t they fit, but I could barely even pull them up. And under the fabulous fluorescent dressing-room lights, I looked REALLY fat (the knee-high black socks against my ghostly white skin probably didn’t help much either).

I left the store just about in tears, convinced that there were no clothes anywhere in the store that would fit the very-fat me.

I resolve not to try new clothes on again until I’ve at least hit the 20 pound mark – if I’m over today’s trauma by then…
