This is one of those, “*THROWS HANDS IN THE AIR* I GIVE UP, I JUST DON’T KNOW ANYMORE,” kind of moments.

Maybe I was really bloated last month.  Maybe I got really lucky this month?  I don’t know.  I JUST DON’T KNOW.  A 7.5″ negative difference in my waist is huge – that’s not something that you can do by accident unless you have something stuck between yourself and the measuring tape, y’know?

The difference in my bust and the bra band: again, I don’t know, because I still feel like my breasts are trying to escape from my bra the whole time.  But then, I always feel like that.  I’m still wearing the 46DDD (US) that I bought from Lane Bryant in 2009, so it’s got little to no support left in it.  The other’s a 46G wire-free from… somewhere.  UK measurements.  The two are not the same.  The G-cup should technically be bigger, anyway, and yet I have more sideboob with the G-cup.  GO figure.

Basically: I hate my body, but not for the most obvious of reasons.

I just wish it made some goddamn kind of sense.
