I’ve gained some weight from Vryalar (an antipsychotic that I’m on). So, David and I went shopping for new clothes, specifically jeans, yesterday. I usually buy my jeans from old navy because they carry size short (I’m only 5’4 and petite), but come to find out that they no longer carry short length in my size in stores (2/4)! It was very frustrating. Then, I went online to buy some size 4 shorts online and they were out of stock! So I did not get to buy the clothes that I wanted to. I’m going to have to look at Thredup and other second hand stores now I think to find jeans that fit me. It’s so frustrating though that my favorite store no longer carries my size!
On the plus side, lingerie fits me better now that I am no longer an extra small/small. I can actually buy bras from stores other than specialty lines like Victoria Secret. The problem with this is though that I have to buy all new bras, which is really annoying. I’ve been the same size for years now so I hate the fact that I grew due to the medications I’ve been on over the past year. I went from 113 pounds to 132 in a year due to a combination of different antipsychotics: Olanzipine, Seroquel, Abilify, and now Vryalar. I’ve got to find a way to stop the weight gain, though, because I don’t want to buy size medium clothes like shirts and stuff like that. It would be too expensive. My New Year’s resolution is not just to exercise more but to be more active in general. But I can’t guarantee that this will happen because of my physical health problems. I’m seeing my psychiatrist on Saturday and will talk to her about this then.
I’m really tired out from yesterday and am about to go and take a nap! Thanks for reading. Feel free to comment below.
