Wow - did I ever relate to all of your comments! I had some great clothes that I wore in the fall (live in VA - warm climate). Well, when spring rolled around....the clothes didn't fit! And WORSE yet - couldn't wear those winter layers to cover up!!! Golly...EVEN my underwear is tight!
Now that's motivation!!!!

You guys are awesome! Thanks for the support! The suit will work just fine..I always get the Speedo crossback because it has plenty of coverage and support and it holds up really well.. I already feel better after going to the gym for the last 7 days in row and finally seeing the scale move a little bit..But again.. THANKS! Have a great day!
First thought I had was - the bathing suit is not the right style for you. Even when my weight was down, the suit that looked good on me in college would look all wrong for me as I grew older. I live at the ocean so bathing suits are required wearing. Two things I learned - do not order suits online unless they are a style you already have tried on and know looks good on you and second is you will be amazed at what 2 weeks on a good eating program and exercise can do for making a suit look good! You hit something like what I ran into 2 weeks ago. I have the awesome pair of "city shorts" that I loved to wear last summer - I was heavier then I had been even then but these at least looked good on me. I went to wear them to an event 2 weeks ago and I could not get them buttoned. I was horrified. But guess what? Just with the little time I have been here I tried them on and they fit - not as well as they should but I know I am on the right track- you will be too! You go girl! Gale
I can't wait for the day when I can fit back into all the clothes that have found their way to the back of the closet over the course of the past year. But what I am realy excited for is having to go out and by all new because even the old ones will be too big someday. I just wish losing weight also came with a magic fairy to make money grow on trees or to fill my closet with all the latest duds! Keep up the good work everyone and we'll get there one day at a time.

I have shirt I wore last christmas that I love and only wore once, I tried it 2 weeks ago and it got stuck, STUCK! on my arms. I cried, and then weighed myself, cried some more, and then joined up with spark and feel much better about myself. So I'm keeping that shirt to fit back into one day.

Do you ever watch those shows where the person trying to be more healthy chooses an outfit or bathing suit and then they buy it in a smaller size? Then they always look so good fitting into it at the end of the show?? That's going to be us!!!! I love fashion, however those fashion peice don't always come in my size or they don't suit my size. It is motivating (like you said) to plan to buy a new wardrobe! I better add that to my goal list.....SEXY clothes....here I come!

I really didn't know what else to call my topic.. could have been "dealing with emotional eating" or "sharp drop in self-esteem". But I had a challenge yesterday that would have knocked me down a month ago. Bathing suit in a box. Going to Mexico in two weeks. Look NOT GOOD in bathing suit. Have to deal with it. Read my blog for the full story, but I am sure that someone else out there ran into a stumbling block and had to address those emotions that have brought us to this site in the first place. How do you deal with the set-backs? Lets share some ideas!
