New Clothes

Last night I had fun buying new clothes for the first time in almost 10 years!! Lane Bryant, a plus size store just moved out of the mall and into a strip mall. I went over for their "grand opening" on Friday night and found myself amongst many, many women. Apparently to celebrate their big move everything in the store was 40% off. It was not great timing b/c Jeff and I had plans to go out for dinner and I literally had to get back home within a 1/2 hour. So, I grabbed a bunch of stuff and bought it to take home and try on. When Jeff and I were finished with dinner we had some time to kill and we went back to return the stuff that didn't work and pick up some other items. It was so much fun. Having choices. Something that I didn't want to admit but it was true. Before I started losing weight I had none! I was pretty much wearing the same five things over and over this past year. It gives me such incentive to make the right choices and forgo the items that aren't what I should be eating. I like feeling attractive again! Now for my next get out of Lane Bryant and into Ann Taylor! Everytime I have been in that store (usually to buy a giftcard or with a friend who shops there) I feel like they are looking at me like "Sorry sister, your too big for Ann!" and thats if they even speak to me. I have been in there where they just plain ingnore me!I am going to be like Pretty Women when she goes back to Rodeo Drive after they dissed her and say, "Remember me? I am buying a whole new wardrobe, big mistake..huge!":)
Hee hee!
