Clothes !! Advice please.
Hi all. This is a bit of an embarrassing post for me... But here goes.
As of Monday when I started - I am 20 stone 10. have gradually put 4 stone on to my already large frame.
At 17 stone I wanted to lose weight, and tried a few times.., but usually went up and down between 16:10-17:5.
I always bought clothes in size 18 or 20. I had the odd 16-18 I would squeeze myself into. Although I was big I have always had PLENTY of clothes and always made an effort to try to look nice.
Fast forward 10 months. I am still squeezing myself into the same clothes, but obviously, now I'm 4 stone heavier, you can understand some of it has more give than others!! :(
This morning I tried on a pair of jeans (size 22)
I could only JUST do them up... And had a whole almost shelf of fat over the top of the wasitband!
After a while I got used to the waist and *could* get away with wearing them looks wise... But oh my word I felt so uncomfortable!!! I just can't *move* in jeans at this weight! My legs didn't even want to walk - and they fit fine on the legs! Just too much bulk going on.
Never felt so ashamed. Truly my most 'fat' moment.
But here's the real dilemma - on Tuesday I fly to Canada to spend our birthdays & Christmas with my fiancé. What on earth am I going to wear from now until Feb!
I wish I had a wardrobe full of 'unflattering tent like clothes' you read about in success stories... But no I'm stuck with all my skinny clothes!!
Absolutely devestated !! I have next to no money either. Grrr! And I thought my hunt for a decent looking size 22 coat was hard work. :( :(
