shopping for unmentionables

Today I went shopping for bras. I tell you it's worse than shopping for a swim suit (almost). I have been doing the South Beach Diet and I really like it. It is an easy diet for me to stay on and is the only one that has worked long term. (Loner than 2 weeks!) Anyway, I have lost 20 lbs in 3 months. Not fast progress but healthy. So none of my braziers fit me well anymore so I took a trip to town. I think I tried on 30 different bras! Nothing seems to fit well and like most women, I am not exactly the same on both sides. Aggrivating! cupsize has shrunk but not my rib size. How depressing! I've gone down a whole size where I least want to! The good thing is that I am seeing progress in my pant size. I have been a size 14 for 10 years and now I am a size 12! YEA!!!!!!!
To be honest, I just want to be healthy and feel good. I want to be able to run 5 miles and feel good about it. I don't care what pant size or bra size I am as long as I know I am taking care of the body God gave me as best I can. So, that's my news of the day! Love you all!!!

Your boobs would be double the size if you ate a cheeseburger and an ice cream cone every day!


I am sorry I missed meeting you for bra shopping. ETHAN was horrid, so I took the little punk home and had a nap!

Love ya!

(Did you buy a blue one?)

I detest bra shopping. My problem is a lack of something for the bra to support. I'm smaller than an I found a very sturdy "stand-on-its-own" type bra called The Ultra Push-Up bra from Gap Body. It is still too big for me (the smallest size they have is an A cup), but no one is the wiser.

And congrats on the successful dieting! I love success stories! It is a great feeling to feel strong and in control of your own body. :) ...I say as I am about to get up and go get myself a bowl of ice cream!! :)

You guys make me laugh! I have a little sister who is very small. She has a hard time finding bras too. Even when she nursed she was no bigger than an A. I find that I like being smaller. The bras I found make me feel young and perky!
