Well, I usually love to buy shoes and some new  clothes when I am travelling in the states but there really  isn't any point since my surgery is less than a month away so...I bought  a coach purse  instead!!  LOL  They  always fit!!

That purse will look great with your up and coming svelt body. I had to do that last fall when I went to the states. The shoes I bought then are all too big as well as the pants. Rock that Coach

Very wise choice.
Honestly if you can believe it, sometimes it can get a little "annoying" after a while when you have to buy new clothes every few weeks. (I did say "a little"). ..Usually it's just AWES|OME!!

LOL - annoying??  are you  sure??  I have read posts about how fast you shrink out of clothes and it seems so surreal.  My mom had this surgery 3 years ago and we have been sharing our clothes with each other.  I gave her all my skinny clothes that didn't fit  from years ago and she  gave me all of her not skinny clothes.  The skinny clothes are waiting in a couple of tupper ware bins.  smallest size is 16 so we'll see  how that goes.  I look  forward to the awesomeness though!!

awesome!!

I jsut got a really nice purse that DOESNT fit (seriously, read on) I was given a really nice big black handbag, but the straps dont quite fit on my shoulders very well because of my fat arms... so I cant wait for the day I can say my new purse fits!
