I decided that when I could remove my pants without unzipping or unbuttoning them, it is time to think about new clothes. AND I hate shopping. I know...I know...it sounds crazy but I do hate shopping. It has nothing to do with the fact that I can't ever find anything that fits. Even when I was my smallest size as an adult, I hated shopping. I think I always will.
I did go shopping today....and now I have another problem. I have no idea what size I am. My biggest problem is pants and jeans. When I find something that fits on my legs, the waist is too big. When I find something that fits in the waist, the legs are way too tight. I am going to have to start looking into alterations. I have never done something like that before but I don't have much choice if I want to wear something that does not have an elastic waist band.
I shopped all day and ended up with one pair of slacks for work, which were about FOUR sizes smaller than some of the pants I am wearing to work now. I haven't really shopped in a long long time. I had plenty of things in the closet that were too small but some of them I have to get rid of already. I still need to find some jeans but will have to look into the cost of alterations before I purchase any.
