I've never bought grannie panties either. Mine were always highcut leg briefs. Though at Xmas, when I was down to 199 for the first time in ages, I bought a while slew of new smaller panties, and tossed all my baggy, saggy, ages-old panties! Woohoo, it was awesome! And now some of those smaller panties are just too big, devastates me! ;-)

Change the way you think about food. Everything else can wait but not my weight!! Mini goals; get back to walking after almost 1 month off, Get back on track.
I'm like you Candace, even at my biggest I like to have pretty undies, matching and sexy. They just make me feel better about myself. I must admit though, some of my smaller ones fit nicely now, no longer strangling my hips lol!!

This is a bit vain, but even at my heaviest, I refused to wear the grannie panties!!! Just looking at them was depressing... I'm one of those freaky underwear people - everything has to match & be pretty, even if no-one but me sees it. lol

I haven't changed the style of my panties but have thrown away the huge pairs I had. About a year ago I had purchased the wrong size but now they are the right size. Soon to be the wrong size again I hope, only to big instead of to small.

As of this weekend, I did. Believe it or not, I was still wearing my underwear I had from last summer, 100 pounds ago! So I bought 9 new pairs, lower cut, bright colors, etc. Can't wait to take my post-workout shower in a bit and try the first pair on!

I have officially retired my "grannie panties" and it feels so good to be able to buy "pretty panties" again, I know strange thing to be excited about but I do tend to walk to the beat of a different drummer.
