Clothing while losing



Recommended Posts

I used to think Goodwill was a crazy thought, but when you have nothing to wear and know you're going to go through clothes quick, it really is a viable option. If you take your time and go through everything you may even find clothes with the original tags still on them. I've found this several times.

Also, if you go to places like the Nordstrom Rack you will find some really cute stylish clothes for really cheap. Especially on the clearance racks!!

Here's something else I don't think many give credit to... Get a belt! It will get you through an additional size or two. ;o) I bought one for when my 14's and 16's get too big. I only have a few pairs of anything smaller and really, I'm going to wear these clothes out most likely until I hit size 8 or smaller. Anyhow, I've already started needing it. I bought a good quality genuine leather belt and it doesn't look chintzy or anything.

Happy shopping!!

I wear a belt every day! Work uniform. I know it helps, but will only take you so far. I was getting so embarrassed by my saggy pants at work I finally demanded two pair and they felt SOOO much better when I put then on.

I will probably breakdown and go to Goodwill at some point, I hate shopping period!

Another idea is the add on buttons that you can use to make pants bigger....just use them to go smaller. That works for a drop of several sizes. I got a package of nine buttons for $10.

I watched the sales. Kohls often has amazing sales, and if you are on their email list, you usually get coupons for as much as an additional 15% off of the sales price. I got a pair of jeans two weeks ago that were originally $36.00 for just $9.00. I felt pretty good about that.

Don't forget, we also having a clothing exchange forum here on VST as well.

I love Kohls :)

Kohl's clearance racks!!!!! Also, I live really close to an outlet mall, so I invested in a pair of Levi's. I have had to replace them since, but at the outlet store, plus watching for when they have sales. Not too bad.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
