Why are people so nasty?
Monday, April 11, 2011
Well today i feel rubbish.....mainly because some woman in the shop said something nasty to me. I tried on a maxi dress which was a UK size 6. No some 6's i can fit into but normally i am an 8. A size 6 was the only one on the rail so i thought i'd try. It fit perfectly round the waist and hips but the zip wouldn't do up by 2cm around my bust. I got changed and went back to the fitting room assistants to ask if they had any more sizes...i didn't state which size i needed. There was a woman that had come out of the fitting room next to me and she heard me ask so she turned around and said to me, "this is a size 10 but you probably need something bigger then that". I was mortified, embarrassed, cross and upset all at once. It was all i could do not to burst into tears.
I know it may not sound much to some people but up until 18 months ago i was always a size 6 now i am a size 6-12 (UK) so for a woman to turn around and basically say that i looked too big to get into a size 10, i was so upset, especially when i am trying so hard to loose some lbs.
To make matters worse i then weighed myself and i have put on 1lb so today i am 8st13lbs, very nearly 9st.
I feel horrid.
