    No way do I reach for the larger size -

    My weight / size is ALWAYS on my mind - no way do I reach for a bigger size.

    I do not shop much in person (online alot thought) and I know for me personally. I have a hard time buying clothes that fit properly since I am so used to wearing BIG baggy tops. I opt for XL out of habit when I should be in L or M most of the time!!!!

    I just did that the other day as a matter of fact. Went to Deb's and they have the left side being junior sizes and the right is plus sizes. I was so used to having to go right for clothes that I naturally gravitated toward that area again.

    I used to do that.It is hard to realize that you don't wear that size anymore,after so many years. I will pick my size up now and think to myself-I can't believe I can fit this! It's crazy.

    Default shopping and size

    I was just wondering if when you go shopping do you reach for your "before Phen" size? I have caught myself doing that a lot. I guess since I was the same size for 10 years it's hard for me to believe that I'm not that size anymore. I'm not complaining, just curious if others automatically reach for the "before Phen" size.
