I Must Be Shrinking

Posted on June 21, 2011 by under Health, Shopping.    

Brian and I went to Old Navy today to pick up a pair of shorts for me so I can use my Old Navy Groupon before it expired. We meant to use it on Saturday when Brian picked up some new clothes, but we forgot all about it. We only remembered to use the gift card that he got from his parents for his birthday. If I would have thought of it, we would have been able to reduce the amount that we charged to our credit card. Brian got a ton of new stuff to replenish his wardrobe since he is down to mediums now.

Anyway, we couldn’t really apply the Groupon to a previous purchase so we figured we’d just have to go back and pick up something inexpensive that we can use our Groupon on. What a racket right? You buy a Groupon thinking that you’ll be saving mucho dinero, but really you just end up buying stuff that you probably wouldn’t have bought otherwise. Are you really saving money? Well, I guess you do as long as you’re not forgetful like I am. I really need to quit buying Groupons just for the sake of buying them.

The good news is that my new pair of shorts only cost me .73 cents. Cheapest shorts I ever bought! LOL. Oh, the other good news is that I can now squeeze myself into size 2s in Old Navy bottoms. Who would have thought? Although, I ended up buying the size 4s. They are a little loose but I got them because they felt more comfortable around my thighs, which are annoyingly huge. Also, I’ve never been all that impressed with the quality of Old Navy garments, so I think they might shrink when I put them in the dryer. In which case they’ll fit me perfectly after.

I told Brian that I’m going to have to try on my summer clothes before we pack them for our trip because they might not fit right. At least I know I’ll have a pair of shorts that fit me that I can bring on the trip. I may just have to settle for looking yagit for a while, until I can buy some smaller clothes. I know for sure that I need some new dress pants for work. My Express 6s that used to fit me perfectly now fit me like my old Eddie Bauer 6s. I haven’t been a size 4 in Express in years so this is quite exciting! I’ve decided to hold off on buying new work pants until after we return from Boston, though. I’m kind of picky when it comes to work pants. I think I might just go shopping on the Thursday or Friday after we return from our trip.

Anyhow, I just wanted to share that exciting news. It’s a slow and gradual process, but I think I’m actually returning to my old size. Never in a million years did I think that would be possible. Now I’m thinking that I just might be able to get size 2 this year if I keep up this level of physical activity. Which isn’t bad really, considering that I’m doing things that I thoroughly enjoy doing and I get to be around hot, sexy ladies all the time. I love, love, love my fellow Zumba girls!
