Clothing size deflation made me late.

I saw 170 on the scale this morning, so given my plan this now means that I can wean myself of my diet and go into maintain mode, rather than loose mode, which means I can stop being a calorie counting diet freak and go to the occatioanl resturant with out completely freaking over what to get! Yay! at least until I do this again in a few months. Still got 40 lbs to loose.

I bought a size 10 dress today. However this has nothing to do with the weight I lost and everything to do with the fact that there is size deflation. I've heard about this before, but I never saw it personally or knew the extent. When I was 140 I wore a 14 and maybe the odd 12. Now I walk into Dress Barn (I was desperate) and take the 16 off the rack, thinking this should be my size. No. Ok, try the 12, since there isn't a 14, what? that's too big? the 10? no way. By all rights I should be a 16. That's just way too much change in the past 10 years. It's wrong. Why can't we use numbers that mean things?

This made me late for coraline helping me dye my hair. Luckily I wasn't too late. Now my hair is dyed with red and purple and blue. I'll get pictures up sometime before late tomorrow.
