Shopping Bag Induced Humiliation

I have a confession...

My name is Little Miss Sunshine State and I buy my underpants at Lane Bryant. It's really expensive and really comfortable and stands up to about 1,000 trips through the washer and dryer.

Since I've lost 40 pounds, I can now wear the smallest size underwear from Lane Bryant.
I bought 4 new pairs. This is the bag that the saleswoman put them in.




IT IS HALF AS BIG AS MY QUEEN SIZE BED QUILT!!

I stood there with the bag in my hands. REALLY??? This is the smallest bag they have?
I folded it 4 or 5 times until it was about 12 inches x 12 inches before I walked out of the store.

Because nothing says I HAVE A FAT ASS like walking around a shopping center with a bag that has 5 inch tall letters that say LANE BRYANT.

Hey!
Be proud of the new you!



And use the bag to recycle a case of bottles...

As Bb says, be proud of the new you!

And, in the future, take a canvas shopping bag to the store with you. :-)

Oh my gosh! I haven't read blogs in a while and your last few had me laughing out loud! I got bored with my blog so turned it into a family thing so we can all post what's going on with each other. Maybe I will start a new one at some point, but just enjoying reading others for now. Thanks for the laugh while I am bored at work!

Pretty Things said...

Yay you! But holy cow, that bag! I vote you stuff all the panties that no longer fit because, you know, you rock out the smaller ones, and throw them out!
