    Today i faced the scariest thing in my world.

    Clothes Shopping :psiholog:

    Not a pleasent experience, with only one shop that streches to my size (Evans) but also stretches the wallet. However the shop was filled with either really smart trousers or linen ones, that were really see through, now you would think they would consider their market. Most plus size women wouldn't want to wear trousers that showed everything, including the wiggle and jiggle. :character00264: Then looked on simply be, again rather expensive, but you can't buy anything without having a credit check and i don't want that, i just want to pay by card. GRRRRRRRR.

    I need something as next sunday we are going to thorpe park. Having a stark realisation today i wouldn't be able to go on most of the rides and now finding nothing to wear and about ready to crawl under a rock and stay there until all shops cater for all sizes. Think i can sue the skinny shops for discrimination of being fat?

    Tomorrow i'm going to join group and get the monthly pass to encourage that i stick to it. I need to be weighed properly, the wii fit (although fun) is not great for weighing because its so sensitive, picks up 0.1lbs

    Ok i've rambled on long enough sorry guys :badmood:

    I have to admit I love Evans, I got some gorgeous trousers in there the other week, very flattering.

    I think their prices for tshirts are the absolute best :)

    Have you tried Empire stores online, their always having sales. I have an account with them and I always pay by card. There an option when you get the payment bit for credit accounts or paying in full straight away. Give it a try.

    Yeah i looked but it was the same as the others, you need to be credit checked when you register. I saw some combats in evans so might just get those.
