    All you need is 1 bottle of Jack Daniels, semi-sharp pocket knife, and a girl who can sew; problem solved. Buy your VFFs now!

    I have better whiskey and better rum (your choice), a nice sharp pocket knife with a ling blade to prevent inadvertent gashes, and I can sew flesh (I have experience!).
    Feel free to give me a shout and we'll work on freeing up those toes.

    It can be frustrating going shopping.

    Today, I went shopping for jeans. I got "super skinny" (that's the label), size 10 (NZ, which is a US 4/6).

    So, I grab a pair and run into the changing room (sprints, yo! LOL kidding), and there are ladies in rooms either side of me. I think nothing of it.

    Until I step out of the dressing room to see if they "fit" properly (no mirror in the changing room, oddly, but mirrors are expensive here). THen, I'm suddenly surrounded by dirty looks.

    now, admittedly, it could be because I was there with my son and I was stern with him. But, it could also be because I was the thinnest woman in the dressing room -- including teens -- wearing the smallest pair of jeans there (admittedly, they do also sell size 8 and 6 NZ -- 8 being a 4/2 US, and 6 being a 2/0 US). But, apparently none of the really petite gals were in the dressing room at the time.

    The jeans were on sale-sale, so I got two.

    Then I went and tried on bras/panties at the fancy lingerie shop (also having a sale), and got three sets of very nice ones. The ladies there were very nice and helpful, though I overheard them saying "man, I wish I'd lost all the baby weight. Did you see her abs?"

    At least they were nice about it.

    Here lies the problem- I caved in the face of my R11 driver! I am lost without my driver! My new driver is on the way from taylormade, but I hate playing without one!

    My scores have went up by around 8 strokes because I can't dial n the added length of my irons. For example- pitching wedge was around 130, now I am hitting it over 150- 6 iron was around 180- now it is flying from 215-225. What the hell? I don' t feel I am swinging that hard, but I hit some balls on the monitor and my swing speed was approaching 125 and a few higher. For all u golfers out there, that is pretty crazy for me.

    Oh well, I will figure it out one day and play this stupid game good, at least I am healthier and feel great- golf is just a game!

    I have this same problem! Distances are exactly the same and for the longest time I was flying greens by 20+ yards. I still find myself making poor club selection choices in the 175-190 yd range. Good luck!

    Where can I buy jumpers that don't assume that women have skinny arms? I have actual biceps now, and can't get my arms into things that are meant to be my size.

    I've always liked curling up and sitting on one leg when I'm relaxing, and now I'm very happy that I can sit cross-legged on my narrow armchair. Unfortunately I've still got a lot more thigh-fat to lose so I still get pins and needles!

    I also need to buy new bras soon, for the second time in 5 months (Started at 38J, now in a getting-loose 36J, soon I think I'll need a 34J!). This is inconvenient because I'm still big enough in cup size to need to order them online, and pray that I've worked out the size correctly and won't have to send them back!
    Start weight: 238 lbs (March 2012)
    Current weight: 205 lbs (July 2012)
    Loss so far: 33 lbs!!!
    WOE: Primal + IF
    Movements: Hiking, sprinting.
    Goal: to see my abs some time in 2013!

    I feel your pain! I just bought a new bra off ebay in what I thought was my new size (I measure as a G), but when it arrived the fit was hilariously bad. Luckily I was able to go to the retail store today and exchange it for a DDD and that fits okay. But otherwise I would have been out $15 and would have been mad.
