Dangerous in Old Navy

Today was nice and relaxing -- something I almost never get anymore. I got out of the house for a couple of hours to run some errands and just happened to go into Old Navy. That is one store in which I could max out a credit card. I am dangerous in there. Did get a pair of khaki pants and a couple more t-shirts -- major staples of my wardrobe (khakis, jeans, t-shirts, flip-flops). I actually enjoy clothes shopping now. Since December of 2005, I've lost 35 pounds and three clothing sizes. Hurrah! Still got a ways to go, but slow and steady wins the race. Jer and I were looking at pictures of me from last year. It was encouraging to see the difference. Maybe I'll post the pictures. Nah... maybe not. I need to go do some sit-ups.

Oh good! Do you think we'd have time to visit a Canadian Old Navy? I'm sure it's just the same, but I want to be able to say I've been to a Canadian Old Navy. LOL

The walking Old Navy ad here (I'm wearing their clothes today, as I usually do, complete with logo T) understands completely! I even have an Old Navy card that I just opened because that 20% off for a new card made a significant difference the last time I shopped there.

35 pounds really is incredible. I've lost about 7-8 since I moved to New York, and I'm happy about that much! I'm hoping to lose a little bit more, but I think not more than 10 pounds. Right now I weigh about 2 pounds more than I did when I graduated from high school, so that's not too bad! I've been a size 14 for the past 7 years, if not longer...

I've actually never been to Old Navy, Limited Too, or any of those other places. I shop at consignment stores and Goodwill. xD

That's where I shopped forever. My family didn't have enough money for me to get clothes anywhere else. All of my clothes were from the resale shop, Goodwill, or given to me. Not until I got a job was I actually able to go and buy my own clothes in actual stores.

When I was young and growing quickly we shopped a second hand stores sometimes. Since I was the youngest child and had two older sisters I wore a lot of hand-me-downs. My family is very solidly middle class, and in many ways we tended to act like it (I will confess that I am a middle class snob, which I am trying to address), so I usually had clothes purchased from department stores during junior high and later. When I got my own job my middle class snobbery increased and I started shopping at places like Ann Taylor Loft. The clothes are cute but you have to shop on the clearance rack!

*laughs* Even though we technically at poverty level, the Lord blessed us so greatly that we appeared to be middle class... or lower middle class. Our Father is good to provide for His children!

And my irritated mother reminded me that she did sew the majority of my church dresses. Forgot to mention that. Sorry, Mom.
