okay ladies, i am having a new problem and i’m curious to know if i’m not alone and where/what designers i might want to shop.
i happened to notice this weekend that the arms on my wool jacket were a wee bit tight. thought nothing of it, perhaps my sweater was bulky or something. then this morning, i went to slip into a suit i hadn’t been able to wear all winter since in the fall i had been “bad.” (no gym and eating crappy) pull on the skirt, fits great, even a little loose (where it had been too tight to wear in decemeber) put on my make up, get all ready, go to run out the door and put on my suit jacket- and it is way too tight through the back and the arms. i know that i will lean out a little when i drop the add’l 10-15#s of fat i’m still toting around, but, is this likely to be a trend which continues? if so, i’m more than fine with it. however, am i going to start having to buy bigger sized suits and have then tailored down, or are there designers who make more athletic cuts for women?
i am following t-dawg 2.0 and following a 12 wk program of a 5 day split coupled with 5-8 cardio sessions a week. if that info helps at all. goals are to drop bf/fit into a size 4 (from a size 8)/as well as to bench my BW and complete 5 chin-ups.
side note: i mistakenly mentioned problem this to some women in the ladies room this morning and they both replied, “less weight, higher reps!” i said that i had a program i really liked and was happy with the results, and this 40 something woman a good 30-40#s overweight says to me, “well just don’t get ripped, that’s gross.” i told her that was what i was going for . . . just kind of made me giggle. but i’m sure these exchanges are the old familiar for many of you.
