Don't let the title fool ya--- this post has nothing to do with breakfast foods covered in maple syrup. Actually, this post doesn't involve covering anything in maple syrup. I am thinking if it did this would prolly need to be a whole different kind of blog. (Excuse me for a second, while I remember the point of this post...................................Oh, yeah!!!)
So I have been hanging at 203lbs for almost 2 weeks now. I got my period a week ago and got all bloated and gross feeling so the whole weight loss thing has slowed down to a crawl. These last 4 lbs before Ohneederland feel like they are mocking me, but that isn't really what I wanted to talk about.
I am currently rocking a Size 14 Misses jeans and Large tops (Thank the Lawd I am still rocking some DD bra action). However, it has been almost 15 years since I have seen 203lbs and I am pretty sure that I wasn't wearing a 14 Misses jeans or Large tops the last time I was there. As a matter of fact, I am almost positive that the last time I saw 203lbs I was filling out every bit of a plus size 16. I will acknowledge that the last time I saw 203lbs I wasn't taking Zumba classes till my face melted off but still.....really?
I think I have to call bullshit of some of these sizing standards. I am starting to think that in the past 15 years while I was stuck spinning my wheels at Lane Bryant the rest of the fashion industry decided to monkey with the sizes in "regular" stores. My main argument for this is that I still have a lot of the "skinny" clothes held over from my lowest weight. Many of those clothes are size 14 and still have quite a ways to go before I can even get them snapped let alone actually wear them.
So like I said, WHAT THE FRENCH, TOAST?? What are you guys experiences with sizes? Are you as confused as me as to what happened over the past few years?
