GeTTiNG DReSSeD

You know it's bad when you are getting dressed and you start by clipping on your bra and you say the silent mantra:

I hate bras
I hate bras
I hate bras
I hate bras

while you are putting it on.

And then ...

You pick up the jeans you see on the floor where you are certain you left them last night and put them on, and while you are attempting the zip-up, you say in your head a kind-of-whisper-thing:

These cannot be the jeans I just took of LAST NIGHT!

I with ya...I just bought some new bras with my Christmas money, and they're tight. Grrrr. I'm afraid to get on the scale.

Melissa said...

Ah yes, I went bra shopping yesterday...'nuff said!!

I'll be looking for some new "Foundation garments" (as Tim Gunn would say) this year. Soon, actually, as the elastic on one just gave way, leaving me with little more than an assortment of jog bras to pick from in the morning.

But I can't say I'm looking forward to this...

Monnik said...

I am SOOOO with you on this, sister!!

Sigh.

It's why I brought half a turkey sandwich and some clementine's with me to work for lunch.

That's not going to cut it since I've been on the 10,000 calories per day plan for a few weeks.

that'll be the jean shrinking elf at work again

Scales? It's just a number to start from

I loathe bras. I also loathe the idea of tucking my boobs into my waistband if they droop lower so I keep wearing the bras anyway. sigh.

I don't mind the boob/bra thing, but I hate shopping for jeans - I have one pair that I love but need at least one more pair and am loathing going shoping for them...

Michelle said...

Yeah.... I don't quite talk to myself (yet) BUT I had half a sandwich with black bean and corn salad and hot tea for lunch today. And I'm going to be doing a LOT of "cooking" with my Vitamix when I get home :) Sparkpeople, I'm on my way back!

Yeah, I hear you. I threw a bra across the room earlier today. And it wasn't even like I get the benefit of bigger boobs (I'll be lucky for a C cup when I'm 11 months pregnant). No, I just have all that extra flab. I went running for 20 minutes. It should have been more, but was more than nothing. At least that's what I'm telling myself. My husband left before me and still isn't back because of how his pants all shrank in the waist. Sigh. Okay, must stop kicking ourselves!!

I love the way a nice, supportive, sexy bra looks, and I can't wait to get back into one. These nursing bras are HIDEOUS! You'd think there would be some nice selections for nursing moms since this is a time in your life when you feel very UNsexy?

Sara said...

Or when you try on sweats and they're much tighter than they should be

Nancy said...

Wow -- it's time to start the New Year's Resolution diet restrictions!

Grr...

I can totally relate to the jeans thing.

Not about the bras though. I am of a certain boobage where things get...interesting if i do not wear a bra and all that friction isn't good for anybody (let alone my ego)

I was playing the Wii with the kids yesterday for the first time since before the holidays and the wii fit told me "your weight has changed since last time" I swear the thing goraned when I stepped on the board! Will not be shopping for jeans just yet....

Funny. I don't mind wearing bras but I LOATHE putting them on.

My coworkers still crack jokes because I once told them how I've always fastened my bras before I put them on, and just thrown them over my head like a tank or sports bra.

I will never live that down apparently.
