Just a little vent about clothing sizes. Spotted a pair of slouchy drop crotch pants on sale online. What size will I need I wondered? Got out out my handy dandy dress maker’s tape measure & checked the size guide. OMG it said I was a MED/large or a size 14 (US 10/12). WTF!?! 😱 Is this the children’s size guide I thought but even if it was I’m only a size 10/12 in children’s wear. Nope, definitely adult sizing.

It’s an Aust company I’ve bought from before (XXS fitted knit dress & XS sweaters) just not pants. All my pants are Aust size 4 or 6. How could I be a size 14 in their eyes?

I know I had some dessert at Christmas but not enough to cause a weight gain of 4 clothing sizes. 😉

GRRRR!

I know everyone thinks they have the best husband..... but I truly do. Valentines Day and I get these.... These have been my dream shoes forever. They have already started to "earn" their cost..... hehehehe

Headed to dinner tonight with a new pair of shoes.... now to figure out how to not scuff up those red bottoms to bad.

Sizes are crazy in the US. I can be anywhere from a 0-4..... Which i think in Aus sizes is 6-10 i think. Best thing to do...... cut the dang tag off and just enjoy the fit

It’s not so much the size on the tag that bothers me but the frustration about choosing which is the correct size to buy & avoiding the return process. I hate online shopping.

Aust sizes are two more than US so a US 0 is an Aust 4, a US 10 is an Aust 14.

Oh & yes your husband is the best @BayougirlMrsS. 🙂. I’ve heard some people put clear contact or sticky tape on the soles of their Louboutins & some brands put on a clear peel off protection on the soles but it makes them slippery to wear. I tried to walk very carefully with mine but ended up just giving up & letting them get scuffed. Still sad though.

I would so wear both those. I told hubby last night, they are shoes that i will Never get rid of and so if they get scuffed, so be it. I'm going to wear the with sasssss and pride...... and hope i don't fall.... hehehe
There are NO stores that sells them in MS. and all the stores we have gone too didn't sell them..... but when we went to Hawaii two weeks ago...... there they were size 36..... Needless to say i carried them on the plane.

Happy Spring! Spring has sprung here... Thought I'd try out my new white jeans purchased but never worn after two years of a Covid dormant closet! Anyone else feeling like white lifts your spirits and lightens the soul?

You look lovely ❤️

Yes spring is here!
The birds are all actively mating or nesting (loudly), the bugs are biting, plants are vining and I have the urge to wear pastels again.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
