As everyone knows, I am on a weight loss mission. I am down nearly 70 pounds at nearly 3 months post – op. We had a yard sale yesterday, and I got rid of just about everything in my closet that doesn’t fit anymore, and I am now nearly clothes-less. One of the big problems is underwear! I thought I had underwear in every shape and size, but in rooting through my drawers the other day, all I found was underwear that falls down as I go about my day. What a good feeling.
Not having bought underwear in a really long time because of how much I have had in my drawer, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to buy. I certainly didn’t want granny panties, since that really was something I didn’t get into until well after I had Brighid, when I started getting really fat. But I wanted something comfortable.
Brighid buys most of her underwear at Victoria’s Secret – because she’s so tiny, she’s entitled to nice underwear, of course. But the other day, when I took her in to redeem a coupon she had gotten, she picked up a few pair of her favorite panties – the ones she finds most comfortable. And guess what I learned? They come in MY SIZE!!
I bought 3 pair – just to try them out. The last time I wore Victoria’s Secret underwear was on my honeymoon. They do fit! And they are comfortable!!
I thought it was a big accomplishment when I could tie my shoes so the bows were on top instead of on the sides. But this is even bigger than that 🙂 So nice to find old friends!
