Shopping with Dad.

By Advsinwtloss @advsinwtloss
Let me preface this by saying my Dad is not a "let's go to the mall" kinda of guy. He's never taken me shopping for clothing (that I remember).  So, needless to say, I was thrilled when he told me he was taking me shopping today.
Now, I have enough clothing at the size I am now, 22/24. However, I got some clothes that are 18/20. I'm not too far away from that size. I was thrilled to try on the clothes and although they are a bit too small for me, I looked pretty damned good in them!
My limit was unlimited and that on top of loving everything I tried on made it very easy to rack up a big bill. We dropped a good chunk of change at Lane Bryant. I got at least four tops, two cardigan sweaters, two pairs of jeans, a watch, sunglasses and three things from the Cacique size of the store.
At my highest wait I hated almost everything I tried on at any store and I usually was very disappointed. I also hated to walk around the all because of the effort that was needed to walk because of all of the extra weight I was carrying.  Today was effortless.
Another milestone for me. I love to shop again! Yay!
