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!
