A victory is a victory, no matter how small. I like to shop at a certain store that has the plus size clothes on one side of the store and the non plus size clothes on the other side. Previously I found myself on the plus size side but today I fdiscovered out how the other half lives.
When I entered the store I hesitated. Which way do I go? Should I start on the plus side and see how that goes or do I go to the other side and feel embarassed if I can't find anything that fits? I drew in a deep breath and headed straight to the "regular" sizes.
I could always see the other side where the "regular" size clothes hung but I felt that if I looked too long over that way people would snicker at my foolishness. They would think I was crazy for thinking I could fit into any of those items and they would probably wonder if I was shopping for someone else. Funny thing is, I have had the same thoughts when I see someone like me shopping outside of the plus section.
In the dressing room I started to doubt my decision but when I slid on the first pair of pants I knew it was going to be fine. Everything I took in not only fit but it looked great. Leaving the store I had 3 pairs of pants and 3 tops that I can wear to work this week that won't look like a sack hanging on me.
Now I have crossed over to the other side and I am not looking back!
