Recent adventures in Tjmaxxing....

I know my posts have been sporadic at best, and this may be repetitive, but life is just crazy. I've been stressed out, busy, tired, sad, cranky, happy, and just plain lazy. I went through just about every emotion that's possible last week. My saving grace = the pool. So glad that sucker is open.

So I had a bit of a traumatic experience at TJMAXX last week. On Thursday during my lunch break, I figured it was time to get some new clothes. 30lbs down, and I don't exactly have a lot I can wear. This is a good problem, but still a problem. To be honest, even thought I still was stuffing myself in a size 10 prior to operation get skinny, I probably was a solid size 12. The 10's are now way too big. I have maybe two pairs of size 8's in pants, and those are getting big. I was trying to pump myself up to go in the dressing room and put on a size 6 which might still be too tight, when this evil old lady decided she was going to pounce on my ego. I was minding my own business going through the racks, when grandma pulls out the worlds ugliest dress, and turns to me and asks if I am a size 12. My reaction "NO!" Her reply "Well you look like a size 12, and this is such a pretty dress and only $19.99." I quickly run out of the store as fast as I can. Didn't get to try on the smaller size, and so this week I find myself wearing the same freaking 2 pants. Thanks grandma.

OH MY GOSH! How incredibly rude. Old peeps always manage to get away with that kind of stuff!!! I can tell in your pictures that you are much smaller than a 12. She obviously just needed her eyesight checked! Congrats on all your weight lost!

Oh yes, the infamous evil old lady department. Kohl's has had one of those for years. TJMAXX is just trying to compete!

Congratulations on your weight loss!
