any tips on dealing with having to buy bigger size clothing due to weight gain and telling people you are a bigger size (I need to ask for one size bigger in my work pants and i am so embarrassed/worried) thank you so very much xxxx

Honestly honey, I don’t know if there is a single person who enjoys doing this? However, some things I’ve learned to overcome this.

Don’t look at sizes while buying. Grab a bunch of shirts (or pants etc.) and don’t look at the sizes (while I was in treatment they would take the tags off while we shopped) or look in the mirror and see how they feel, too small, too big, just right? And then get the things that fit. 

As for asking for a bigger size… I actually had to do this today bra shopping. But I realized that the lady didn’t know what my previous size was - for all she knew I was buying the same size. Your boss may not even know you are getting a different size. Just that yours are worn out or “shrunk in the wash”. 
Hope this helps!
