Online Shoppers Don't Have To Put Up With This

The other week while shopping at Plaza Las Americas for a sweater for Jorge’s upcoming Christmas trip (yay!), I stopped by a clothing store to browse a bit. On a high-up shelf, there was a headless, armless, legless mannequin wearing a gorgeous cream-colored strapless dress.

Since I couldn’t find the dress on any racks, I asked a saleslady for help and she asked my size. “Large”, I answered. The saleslady goes into the back and brings back a dress. “Sorry, we only have medium. Try this one on.”

A tad doubtful, I made my way to the fitting room with the medium dress in-hand.

The skinny fitting room attendant looks at me and says, “Are you sure you don’t want a larger size? Maybe something wider?

She then made me hold the dress up to my body to make sure it was the correct size.

Then she brought the large size down from the mannequin “just in case”.

Wow. Consider me humiliated.

Anyway, I’ve been going to the gym for a year and was doing well, but I haven’t been able to lose any more weight for a few months now. I’ve plateaued. (sp?)

So this week I went to a nutritionist and have officially begun my new 1300 calorie diet to lose my recommended 25 pounds of fat! The diet combined with my normal workout routine will hopefully result in fabulousness by April or May.

Let’s do this.

**Note: The medium size fit, by the way. In your face, fitting room attendant!

  1. But it sounded like the first lady thought you would fit in the medium! Whatever, I am proud of you for all the work you have done so far. Even just maintaining a weight takes work. On a different note…I wasn’t aware they sold sweaters in Cancun.

    • We have a lot of international stores from the US, Spain, etc. Since they have “winter lines”, we can find sweaters here at this time of year. (It does get surprisingly chilly at night in December)

      Some even sell beautiful winter coats… not sure how well they do, though.

  2. Ohmygosh that is so rude! Glad it fit though πŸ˜‰ good luck with the new diet, you dont look like you need to lose that much at all! I hope it goes well though! xxx

  3. ahhh! what a hooker! I’m glad the medium fit, did you walk out and show her and then throw your hand in her face as to say “talk to the hand, ’cause my slammin’ body doesn’t want to hear it!”?
    Keep up the good work on your weight loss – just cause you’re not losing, doesn’t mean you can’t maintain!

  4. Psssh…what happened to customer service? Want me to push my “lifestyle” of choice on you? check out the paleo diet…try the 30 day challenge. My father in law hit a plateau and he started eating this way (using the 80/20% idea) and lost 22 lbs in 4 months!

    I’m with Kristen too, you look great! Don’t let her get you down.
