Now let me pause here and make sure everyone knows that I'm very thankful for my new voluptuousness ...it indicates that I survived!! I may be "fluffy" but I'm still kickin'!!! and for that I am grateful...given the choice, I would have chosen A or B and skipped this entire ordeal, but my prize said C for cancer and there were no exchanges!
So off to Lane Bryant I went...see Lane and I have a secret little love affair...I'm no stranger to the plus size world, I'm no skinny minny...so during the "thick" years (versus the more rare "thinner" ones), Lane and I are very good friends...
It just so happens that my last relationship with Lane ended in April 2008 after I completed the One Weigh diet program (and went on to be the One Weigh "poster" girl...see here and here for more on my tiny brush with fame)...since then I've been able to stay in an Ann Taylor Loft size 12 (because you know not all size 12's are created equally, and Ann is just a little more generous than other designers - if you know what I mean...)
But Lane and Target have me clothed for the summer. Lane helped with 2 pair of capris, 2 new bras and 2 cute tops. Target helped round out the "wardobe" with 4 additional tops. Now for the Public Service Announcement:
I will be wearing these eight pieces of clothing until they fall apart.
Don't act surprised if you see me in the same clothes all the time...you've been warned. I consider this fluffiness temporary, kind of like pregnancy. No reason to run out a buy a huge wardrobe for a temporary situtaion. Now if we hit "winter" again (the Louisian version of winter), and I'm still fluffy, then I'll face facts and buy more than the essentials...but until then, I promise to laugh my way through the fluff, and I hope you you can join in the laughter!!
