I think many of you know I am losing weight. Now this summer, I didn't really try very hard, but I haven't gained any weight back from the weight I lost this spring. I have lost 15 pounds and I feel really good about it.
Until I try to buy clothes.
Let's just say that I am still in the big girl section. And we all know the BG section is way smaller than the average girl section. There is so much less to choose from. Luckily, I can get away with buying XL tops from the regular sizes and I just have to get my pants from the BG section. And that's what I was looking for: brown pants.
I wanted some nice, dressier brown pants. I wasn't looking for cotton khakish brown pants that I would have to iron everytime I wear them. I wanted wide leg dressy brown pants. Not too much to ask for, right?
I DID NOT want brown pants that taper at the ankle, thus making me look bigger. I did not want pants with a grandma elastic waste. I did not want pants that did not have pockets.
I went to two stores and could not find anything. I had been in the mood to shop and then it was just so frustrating. I almost wanted to cry. There are miles and miles of regular girl racks, and the BG section is tiny. One turn around it and you've seen everything there is to see.
Let me throw this out to designers. If such a large percentage of America is overweight, then why aren't you trying to make some money off them? If anything, I would think a big girl is going to spend more time trying to look nice, because it takes more effort to hide the things we want to hide.
I only have two more sizes to go and then I can begin looking for all my clothes in the average section. That means about 15 more pounds to go. And I know I can do it. But I wanted to look nice while I was doing it.
I wanted some chocolate brown pants since I shouldn't eat the chocolate.
