It's All About The Panties

Yesterday, we took a road trip to Little Rock, which is a thirty minute drive from our house. The occasion was to take our fifteen year-old son to meet his cousins for a two-night sleepover. My brother and his family live in Bryant, so we usually meet halfway to save gas and time.

This time, however, I wanted to go to the mall in Little Rock to buy panties.

I know it sounds crazy to drive an hour round trip to buy panties, but I'm peculiar when it comes to my undies. You see, I discovered these particular panties several years ago, during a shopping spree at Lane Bryant with my daughter, Rachael.

My employer had recently changed their dress code from jeans to business casual and I needed clothes to wear to work. I had outgrown the business casual clothes in my closet. My daughter assured me I would find nice clothes at Lane Bryant. She was right. My favorite purchase, by far, was the Cacique panties.

I know it sounds unusual to blog about a pantie purchase. But yesterday on the way home, I told my husband, "Today was my last day to shop at Lane Bryant!" My husband said, "You should write about this in your blog!"

Six weeks ago, my daughter and I went shopping for workout shorts. We bought two pairs of shorts each, in sizes extra large, large, and medium. Today I tried on the size large shorts and they fit comfortably!

I'm real excited to be on the road to 'Smallville.' It's been a long time since I felt this good about myself.

Hahaha I love Lane Bryant. I can never find pants there that fit, but I can always find underwear and lingerie. I can't wait to shop at a "regular" store though. I want to be able to walk into any store in the mall and find something that fits!

I'm also on the road to losing weight. I'm not sure how much you've lost, but congrats on losing a pant size! I can't wait to get there too. I'm down almost 12 pounds but the size 18's are still a little too tight for me! Yeesh! Maybe it will come in the next five pounds?

Tkhudson, Thanks for reading! We share the same feelings about shopping for 'regular' clothes. Congratulations on the 12 pound weight loss! You'll get there. Just keep plugging away.
