This is from the “been there, done that, bought the T-shirt factory” files. If you’re like me, your biggest goal in life is to lose weight. You hate your girlish curves and your fondest fantasy is to go to bed fat and wake up thin. Morning, noon and night, your obsession and desire is to lose weight.
As a result, you postpone buying your power business suit because you’re going to have to buy it in a plus size. You’re going to WAIT to buy your plus size business power suit once you get to your goal weight.
Until then, you’re committed to shopping the discount store clearance rack to build your business wardrobe, buying clearance pants, skirts, jackets and shirts that have been banished to the clearance rack for a reason.
You know that shopping like that means you’re a likely candidate for the television show What Not to Wear, but you don’t want to make an investment in your clothes until you’ve achieved your ideal weight.
Here’s the end of the excuses!!!
