As I mentioned in my January in review post I have lost 12 lbs. I think I have lost a few more pounds but am refusing to get on a scale more than once a month so I am not sure yet. But I am having this bizarre side affect from the weight loss. My underwear doesn't fit!!!!!
Seriously they are constantly slipping and I am having to excuse my self to pull them up. My pants are having this problem also but for them I just bought a belt. They don't sell belts for underwear....trust me I looked.
At 5 foot 1 inches every 10 pounds I lose is a decrease in a pant size and apparently decrease in underwear size. This is very upsetting to me. Because while I can just go to the local 2nd hand store and buy a few new pairs of pants every month for $10. I can not buy a months supply of underwear every month and I have come to the realization that I will have to settle for a weeks supply of undies. My mother will say that all you really need is 8 pairs of undies to get you through but I have been a firm believer since my college days (when I only did laundry once a month) that any thing less than a 30 day supply is bad.
Think about it what if there was a natural disaster and you didn't have any way to wash your clothes for a week or two. I could handle wearing dirty clothes but for obvious reasons clean underwear is a must.
How often did your mother tell you to make sure you're always wearing clean underwear in case you were in an accident? I never understood this saying I mean really are you going to be caring at that point. Until I was in a car accident and ended up in the emergency room with a gaping hole in my head and a nurse was removing my pants, so they could x-ray my leg along with my face...and yes I had on clean very cute underwear and yes I was concerned about it.
Part of me wants to go eat some cake so that I will not have to deal with the stress this is causing me but I even my illogical mind realises this is a major thinking error.
Surprisingly and thankfully (The BF is thankful also) my breasts are the same size. I don't think I could handle having to buy 7 new bras every month.
