Clothes that fit last year don't this year... In a bad way. It's not a good thing, but I'm facing it. I've been telling myself all summer that I need to get with it and lose the weight that the stress of the past year helped accumulate. I tried all of my jeans on and they are not very flattering. Time to face it and lose the weight. No buying new clothes!

If I don't wear a belt, I am sad the rest of the day because I am hiking my pants up the entire day so that is a good thing! I few more pounds and I can fit back into my "skinny jeans" emoticon

My clothes are feeling very comfortable. I am looking forward to them becoming looser though.

Most are new because I just couldn't wear the baggie old ones any longer.

They still fit tight but working on cleaning up my eating, and lost at least 1 lb so far. I bought some new clothes in one size up a couple of weeks ago and hoping they are too loose in a while. I do have clothes in the size I used to wear. I hope those are too loose in a few months.

Poorly. But instead of buying clothes the next size up today when I went shopping with my best friend I just offered fashion advice instead!

Great! Last summer I was a size 13-15. This summer I'm a size 1-2. I even gained 13 lbs and still fit comfortably in my size 1, 2's.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I'm still a little lousy at buying clothes for my "new" body. I didn't just lose weight but my body type changed completely. I went from a plus size hour glass/ apple shape to a pear with a much smaller chest lol. I don't know what to try on so I end up trying on everything then buying nothing lol. I'm also not quite the size I want to stay just yet so I cringe spending money on stuff for my in-between sizes.

A pair of summer pants that were too snug last summer are just hanging on me this summer. I should probably stop wearing them, but I hate to buy more this summer when I hope the new ones will be too big by next summer.

My clothes are fitting better. Not much weight lost but took measurements today and have made some progress. I guess I will keep up what I am doing along with improving my consistency with tracking.

My current closes fit well and I am very happy. Have slowly started getting rid of my larger clothes. Before I always kept them, and had stored clothes from size 20 to size 8! I am now wearing 4's or 6's depending on whether the brand "vanity" sizes or not. I have finally taken the 20-12's to Goodwill. The 8's and 10's I still have. It is more superstition than anything. I am afraid I will "jinx" myself by being too cocky and getting rid of all bigger sizes!

I have some pants that I can pull off while buttoned they are so loose. I have some that didn't fit in smaller sizes so I just need to take the time and go through my supply and get rid of the too big and start wearing the ones that now fit.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

Awesome! It's a great feeling! I've had to replace everything! Shoes surprised me. I went down about half a size. I also had to buy new bras, underwear, swimsuits.... it has been fun shopping again!

My clothes fit tight. I've been eating junk food everyday and walking a bit, but my Doctor says if I keep on going this way I'll be over 300 lbs in a year (I'm 265 lbs. now).

I've put weight back on. I'm not wearing those pants again until I lose some of it. Now, I've put this weight slowly back on over a long period of time. But I can't get my weight down and stay down. I lose a pound or two and gain it right back. So frustrating. I have about 5 pairs of work pants that I could be wearing, but I can't fit into them any more.

Most of my clothes still fit, though admittedly they fit a bit looser than they did earlier this year. I guess I can lose quite a bit of weight without really changing much in size (but then, I was only just barely above a healthy BMI when I started this weight loss journey).

Not only my clothes needed replacing (I looked funny in baggy jeans), but my shoes were too loose!!
