  • I already tailored this shirt once. I'm going to hafta take it in again, as it's gone from relaxed fit to verging on baggy.

            I don't think that one's work safe. It'd make a GREAT field shirt, though.

            • Two frustrations:
              • Goddammit, how am I supposed to know my period's coming if I don't get cramps anymore?
              • Double goddammit, I keep accruing sick days because I don't catch the department cold when it comes around.

                • I had a funny issue last week. I put on a pair of panties- older panties, under a skirt. I did not pay attention- they were too big and started falling down as the day went on. I happened to be out doing site visits for work, so stopped in a McDonalds and ditched them in the restroom trash and had to go commando. LOL, I had to pitch 5 pairs due to them being too large. And then alot of my old favorite panties now look like granny panties. :-(

                  • My Frustration: Being thinner than my clothes, but instead of them looking baggy and cool like i lost weight they just hang funny and make me look fatter. And I can't afford new clothes yet. POOOOOP



                    or maybe i'm in denial about my weight loss

                    • Sihana, and Maureen, I'm in the same boat. My brother said if I kept shrinking, I'd disappear. I went from size 31, to 28 jeans (men's size). And, as I get smaller in stature, I'm trying to debate skinny fit jeans or not.. I never thought I'd see myself in those, or boys jeans (if there's a set big enough for me...)

                        Oh man, meeeee tooooooo. I've been so frustrated lately with my clothes looking so frumpy on my "new" body. They used to be form-fitting and sexy, now they're all baggy and blah.

                        • Also: It took me freaking forever to find something that actually *fit* to wear to the club the other night. Tried on my favorite pair of pants (the ones that make my butt look hot) and they were falling off my hips. I had to wear my nice dry-clean-only skirt because it was the only one that fit right, and then I got beer splashed on it.

                          DAMN, GUYS, IT SUCKS TO GET HOT AND HEALTHY!

                          • I can't wear my work trousers more than one day anymore, or else they will fall off my butt.
                            They need to be straight-from-the dryer.

                              Finding size 28 or smaller-waist pants can be a pain, but I'd forget about buying pants in the boys' department. Even if you find a pair that isn't cut for a 28-inch pair of hips (e.g. 0 muscle in your legs), they invariably have tiny, useless pockets that man-sized hands can't even fit into.

                              I find I have better luck with t-shirts and polo shirts. Oh yeah, and belts. I only shop for non-dress belts in the boys' stores now. For work (suit) belts, I buy the reversible ones in whatever size they have and unscrew the belt from the buckle (precision screwdrivers are required), cut off a big piece, poke new holes, and put it back together. Takes less than 5 minutes to make a 44 into a 28.
