Hi Melani! Welcome to the team. I love watching those two as well. I get some great ideas of what I can do. And some great examples of what not to do!!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Hi everyone! My name is Melani and I joined this team because I love watching Stacy and Clinton in action. Clinton is one of my favorite TV personalities and it is interesting for me to watch how they help others become a better form of themselves. I am currently a graduate student, happily married with a wonderful 5 year old son. Fashion has never been (gasp, I have to say it) at the top of my priorities but as I have gotten older I love to try new styles and accessorize. I am looking forward to being a new healthier me so I can try even more fun styles!

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Hi Divya and welcome!

I've started doing the same thing...asking myself if a new garment fits in the rules or not. I've definitely done better since watching the show.

Hi everyone! My name is Divya and I really love WNTW. I enjoy mostly all of the episodes and watch them whenever I can. Those rules realllly help me when I am out shopping and I find a bargain. I ask myself, Is this in my rules? will this piece make me look good? Because if the answer to either of those is a no, then its not really a bargain, its just money out the window.
Check out my Spark Page and friend me! Ciao!

I find myself checking any purchases against my inner Stacey and Clinton too! And, agreed, better than it was. I could still do better if those two helped me. Hint hint! LOL!

Hi! I love the show and have been watching it since it began. I dress so much better now than I used to--nothing fancy, but no more dowdy clothes for me!

My daughter (12) and I love to have WNTW marathons with the DVR.

Hello! I'm Lauren. So much to tell you! I dance ballet, bake anything that comes my way, and I love fashion shows- especially What Not To Wear. My own personal style is hard to put in a niche, but it's a cross between preppy and military. The thing I like about the show is Stacy and Clinton. Honestly, without them it's not WNTW.

I'm happy to be here!

Hey all! My name is Britta. Back before I understood anything about fashion I thought What Not to Wear made everyone dress the same, but after I became interested in improving my own fashion I realized just how great their advice is. My own fashion is very minimal, I largely prefer solids over patterns, but I have a few of my mom's hippie shirts from the 70s thrown in.

Most importantly, I've learned how to love my body and its curves (I have a, uh, generous behind) through fashion-- a tight shirt tucked into an a line skirt is my best friend.

Happy to be here!

Thanks for the welcome and the reminder of the start of new season. I had thought that it was going to start soon but didn't know when.

Thanks again,

Welcome to the team! I get the not wanting to get new clothes until getting to goal. But, you're right. We need to dress for our body type as is. I know, I know. Easier said than done! LOL!

Looking forward to getting to know you! Did you see the new season starts August 16th? Woo Hoo!!!

Welcome, Sharon and congrats on your weight loss!! WOO HOO!
I am a SAHM also, so I understand exactly what you mean about not wearing fancy clothes. I will say that sometimes I just want to feel pretty and do not when I am wearing my "mommy" clothes. LOL.
Looking forward to chatting with you here about the show and whatever else!

Hi team,
My name is Sharon and I'm from Clarksville Arkansas. I have watched What Not to Wear for 5 years now and love the show. My son keeps telling me that I need to be on the show. I asked him why. He said because all you wear in the summer time is old Rock and Roll tee shirts from the 80's and 90's. I am a stay at home mom and I feel like since I don't work outside the home there is no need to buy fancy clothes just to clean the house in. I started with Spark People in April 2010. I have lost 40 to 50 pounds already and still have 60 to 70 pounds to go. I feel like one of the other members as to I don't want to buy any new clothes until I hit my goal weight. But I have also heard Stacy say that you need to dress in the now.

I look forward to meeting everyone and getting to know you. Until then,
Sharon

Thanks for the warm welcome, ladies.

I know that on the show they are always pushing the makeovers to love the bodies they have, and dress for the bodies they have right now. That is something I am working on. I've felt so bad about my body for so long, it's hard to change that soundtrack that's playing in my head.

Welcome to the team. I always thought that I wouldn't want to be on the show until I met my weight goal. Cos once you have all those cool new clothes, you don't want to lose weight and then not be able to wear them! LOL! I'm glad you joined the team and I hope you can find ways to fit the rules in now.

Hello! I was just wandering through the Sparkteams, looking for a team I could really click with, and I came across this one. I am a WNTW junkie!

My DH doesn't care for the show either, but my DD (who is 8) L-O-V-E-S it. She keeps telling me she is going to be "the next Stacy" emoticon

As much as I love the show, I have to admit I don't take their advice to heart...I'm still stuck in that "once I lose weight, I'll start dressing better" rut...

Hopefully that will all change soon!

Welcome Deborah! I am on the short side too...5'1". They really need to have a very short woman on the show to give us petites some ideas!

My DH doesn't like the show, so I just find somewhere else to watch! Glad you could join us!

I am a secret WNTW watcher - my hubby thinks it's silly. I am short - 4'11" so am challenged in that department. I love color, and creativity, and lots of other stuff.
I have learned a number of things from the show - though I am not all there yet.
I have pain/back/neck/knee issues, so my weight loss is super super super slow.

Thank you for the welcome MDTWEETY and CARTOONB. About the heels I wear them, but sometimes not the most comfortable thing to wear. I use those Dr. Scholl's foot pads for heels, they seem to work pretty good. I'm a big flat person on the weekends. I buy my heels all over, but Famous Footwear has some of the Naturalizes heels that have the cushions inside, those are nice.

Happy Labor Day All!

Welcome, Paula!! So glad you've joined us!!!
I don't wear heels much these days. Being a SAHM, I'm usually in tennis shoes or flip-flops. That's probably why I need to be on the show.
So tell me, have you found any comfortable heels? If so, please share name and where to buy them!!! I have been looking for years...

Hi there! I'm Paula, single 38 and a total girly girl! I love WNTW and have watched it for years. My style is heels, heels, heels. I'm short only 5ft. 1inch so heels are a must. I love fashion and love finding bargains. Can't wait to get to know you all.

I am re-introducing myself since I have been gone for awhile battling cancer. So far I have won the battle and am anxious to get back to good health and good eating. I started my journey with SP in 2006 but was lazy and stayed at the same weight for years until I gained more. Now I am 60lbs lighter and need to lose 60 more. I am ready to use SP and my friends to help me with this journey.

Gloria

Dear God,

I surrender my body&my weight loss to your divine care and love. I ask that you remove all excess &unnecessary weight from my body. Return my body to its most healthy&balanced state. Give me eating habits that support my health and life energy.And,finally,teach me to love my body&to care for it from this day forth. Amen
LIFE stands for Look Incredible, Feel Extraordinary!...Joy Bauer

Welcome everyone!!
TOTALINDECISION: I also am impressed that you put on makeup at home. I have a little one as well and I rarely make time for makeup. And I am actually a makeup junkie, LOL. Sad to report that I even often leave the house now without wearing it. That was never the case pre-baby. I need to work on that.

Welcome, welcome, welcome!

I'm 5'1", so I totally get the issue with shortness.

Wow! You put on makeup at home? I don't! I'm very impressed.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Hi, all. I joined because I love WNTW and I finally figured out that Stacy and Clinton (and everyone else who knew this little secret) were right; if I dress for the body I have NOW I feel 110% better about myself.

I used to have a rather interesting style (read: gutter punk meets Laura Ingles meets Marylin Manson) but as the years went by I never figured out how to dress like a grownup so I lived in my retail "uniform" of black, black, and black once I hit my early 20's. I then moved on to jeans, jeans, and jeans. Now I'm a stay at home mom and got sick and tired of wearing frumpy old maternity clothes that made me look 10 years older. I still stick with jeans for the most part BUT they are dark washed and straight legged, lol, and I try to mix things up with my (age appropriate and figure flattering) tops. I even bought a dress not too long ago WITH accessories to go with it. Crazy. I take 3 minutes to at least put on powder and mascara even if I am not leaving the house, but most days I find the time to do a bit more with the eyes (usually when the baby is busy slobbering all over his teething ring.)

Anyway, love the show and it is great to see a community revolving around it!

Hi, I'm Robin. I live in VT. I was a twig until I was 20, then BABOOM!!! Way too much weight for my 5' frame. So being short and overweight it is often hard to find fashions that work. Love WNTW as it has taught or re-taught me how to address my body issues. No reason to dress frumpy just because you are not at your ideal weight. I cleaned out my closet and turned over a new leaf!!

Hi! I'm Merry. I was exploring the site and came upon this team so I HAD to join.

I'm an Image Consultant/Stylist and a makeup artist. I have been watching Stacy and Clinton forever and am a big fan. While I may not agree with all of their opinions, I still want to keep learning and being exposed to others' opinions.

Many of my clients reference them so it's important that I'm up-to-date on their episodes. I'm very excited to be here and look forward to participating.

Congrats on losing the 40 pounds AND following the rules! I catch myself looking for a "marketing researcher" when I wear my gym clothes to the store. LOL! Is being aware the first step?

I started watching What Not to Wear last fall after I broke my ankle. I had to have surgery, and missed almost 3 months of work. (Thank goodness I had enough sick leave saved, and good health insurance.) So I got to watch a lot of day time TV from my perch on the easy chair, and WNTW was one of the best shows I stumbled across. I also joined SP during that time and started to lose weight. Now I've lost almost 40 pounds and had to buy all new clothes. I'm trying to follow the rules set down by Clinton and Stacy. I'm not wearing sweat suits to the grocery store anymore and I got rid of my Mom jeans.

Hi! My name is Sue, and I've been on SP for about two weeks now. I was so happy to have stumbled on this group. My daughter (13 years old), and I love to watch WNTW. We critique the outfits, laugh at some of the odd characters (fairy wings???) and we both have gleaned valuable style info from the show that we try to incorporate when we shop.
Glad to meet all of you! Have a wonderful day!

Sue

Welcome!!! I love NYC! I so need to take a day trip there with a friend. Maybe this spring!! Be sure to post pics of what you buy when you go. :) (Is there really an S&C shopping guide?)

Hey everyone! I've been on SP for about a month. My goal is to lose 55 lbs before a trip to NYC in Sept or Oct, during which I will be consulting Stacey & Clinton's shopping guide and want to look and feel awesome! Pumped I found this fun group!

Welcome to the team! I am impressed with both of you for running that far! I ran about 1/4 of a mile today and that was more than enough for me! LOL!

Hi, I've been on SP for quite some time but just found this group. I'm a big fan of WNTW although I don't think my style would meet with S & C's approval all the time. I've lost about 60 lbs but it took me about 3 years to do it. I still have about 10 lbs to go. I did my first 1/2 marathon last Sept. and am planning another in May.

Hi, my name is Mary and I live in Northern California. I'm afraid I'd be a real challenge for Stacey and Clinton, becasue I weigh abour 400 lbs. and I'm wildly disproportionate. I'd love to have them "ambush" me.

I'm looking forward to meeting all of you.

Hi everyone,
I' glad I've found this Team.
I have an ecletic style. I combine street fashion , designer clothes and whatever attracts my attention. Anyway, I've been changing a lot as my clothes are either too big or too small - due to my past yo-yooing - and I'm looking forward to a fashion upgrade, with a little help from my ... emoticon emoticon
