Last weekend I was alone in the Petite section of a department store. My two shopping companions dropped me off and then took off to the Women’s section. This is a fairly new phenomenon and I’m still getting used to the fact that I am wearing regular petite sizes again.
There was a study done a few years ago that revealed women don’t consider themselves fat until they start wearing a size 16.
But you know, I didn’t consider myself fat when I was a size 16. I considered myself chubby. And I never felt unattractive which is atypical. In fact, I feel as cute as I ever did â€” I just have more clothing options now.
But some people seem to think I am vastly cuter now. I am getting quite a few compliments on my my new shape. Apparently I look just fantastic â€” which makes me ask (not out loud) â€” did I look horrible before?
