How to feel bad about going down a size in pants...

Postby Mandie » Sat Nov 18, 2006 11:13 pm

1. Realise your large gym pants are getting a bit loose

2. Decide to buy the same brand, but the medium this time

3. Send your mother shopping as you have to study and work

4. Try on pants

5. Get upset about pants being just too tight to work out in

6. Realise mother bought you size SMALL pants


She knew she was meant to buy the medium, and that my current ones are a large, but apparently they had no mediums left. SHe decided that I would fit into a small?

So even though I have lost weight, my bum is STILL bigger than mum thought, and she said "oh, I figured since they fit me they would fit you" and GRRR yes mum I weigh more than you damnit.

Sorry, it put me in a kinda crap mood!

I know I should focus on the positive - hey, the SMALL almost fit, so the medium definitely will..

but yeah.. trying on clothes that are too small always puts me in a bad mood!

**The sizes mentioned are in a "big girl" brand, there is NO WAY I would get a small in a normal brand anywhere near my thigh!

It does't take much to upset us gals when it comes to clothes thats for sure.

Keep the small ones and they'll be there ready for you when you can get into them which sounds like it won't be too long away anyway.

Well done for going down a size. :D

Don't sweat the small stuff! Hey, look at it this way. Your Mum could have gone out to get you an 'extra large' because you wouldn't think you fit into a medium!! Now that would REALLY give make you mad :twisted:
I would love for my Mum to think I was beautiful.
The other day she said (she has just gotten back from a holiday in Tonga)
"Those Tongon girls Livy, they are HUGE!!! They even make YOU look thin!!!".
Thank your lucky stars your Mum percieves you as thinner than you are, what a compliment!

Well done Mandie. And I agree it is better that your mum thinks you are smaller than larger. My mum just says to me "do you really think you should eat that?". Which really drives me up the wall. But I saw her eating KFC yesterday........hahaha. And I will remember that......hahaha!!!
By the way my mum isnt overweight but she has to be careful or else she will put weight on. Unfortunately I'm not careful and have put the weight on!!!

Keep Smiling!!!

Awww thanks guys.

I feel better today, I was in a cranky mood yesterday anyway and that was just the icing on the cake!

I'm going to keep one pair and get mum to swap one for a medium - that way I have something to wear now, and something to look forward to!

I agree, you need to keep the small ones because you will definitely need them in the future. The whole clothes shopping thing always seem to get me down too (e.g. last Sunday). My friend at work told me that the black pants I am wearing are too big and that I look a bit silly in them. I had to gently explain that I am trying to refrain from buying too many clothes as I am a work in progress!
