So I had a stressful weekend and needed some retail therapy. I went out with the intention to purchase a few new things because honestly everything I have is just hanging off of me at this point. Even new stuff I purchased since I lost weight is getting too big. I started at a size 8/9 back in January. By the end of March I was buying size 4's. Now my 4's are pretty much hanging off. I just cannot wrap my mind around this. I don't ever remember being a size 2... ever. I can't even bring myself to try on sizes that small. I feel like if I try to bring a 2 into the dressing room with me the lady checking me in will just laugh and think "yeah... right." I SEE myself in the mirror and I know my clothes are too big now... but I can't seem to grasp the reality of what size I am. In my brain I think I'm still a size 8. After several trips to the dressing room and going back several times to get smaller sizes it dawned on me... my brain still hasn't caught up with my body! Anybody else experience this? Something else I've noticed is how hard it is to find anything in a size 2... or a 4 even. I never had this problem before. I didn't buy very much. I just didn't find all that much I liked. Another thing is that my body is now shaped differently. I used to be a pear shape... not so much anymore. My bum is pretty flat now. I don't even know how to shop for myself anymore!
