I wanted to look great in a thong and thigh highs and a pair of heels. Last year I threw away all my granny panties and filled my drawer with thongs... and a few pair of thigh highs. I remember how excited I was to put them on for the very first time! :blush:

I have a gorgeous white cotton top with a blue floral motif on the front that I bought on holidays in Greece over 10 years ago - I have never worn it!! It's about a size 16 and I'm currently a 20-22 and that top is my first goal..

Being summer in Australia at the moment, I'm hoping to wear it at some point over the summer, and particularly when I go on a 4 day trip with some girlfriends at the end of February.

I can't wait to be able to wear boots that go to my knee!!!

What do you wear now or what do you want to be able to wear one day that you couldn't wear as an overweight person?

I can ! and I do. again. Lord I missed them. I have hobbit feet so I just discovered born brand.

I wore so much black as a heavy person, and NO bright colors, hearing my moms rejoinder that "Black hides a multitude of sins" playing over in my head, so now that I'm finally down 100 lbs (45 to go!) I bought a great red blazer, and got TONS of compliments! Such fun. Also loved shopping a consignment store today and got a white winter jacket--another color I'd not wear back then.

I still want to wear one of those cute close fitting workout tops, instead of avoiding anything that clings and shows my jiggly middle!

I have two goal outfits. The first is to lose those last 8 lbs for my wedding dress. The second is to wear a swimsuit and own it but that's going to take a thigh lift first.

I've never really been into lingerie because, well I've not had a boyfriend to wear it for in all my adult years. When I was the size that I could wear lingerie I was still a Virginia lol! SO....LINGERIE!!!! Something really sexy and the something really slutty (for when I DO have a man of course????)

Girl your supposed to wear to now! That's how you get your man. Lol. Nothing like wearing jeans & a t-shirt then wearing something really sexy underneath! It gives a girl a certain confidence.

Now that I've had my breast reduction, I can't wait to get cute (not the loud, ugly ones) sweaters in holiday colors. I really want to dress in the spirit of the season, without looking like a prehistoric Venus.

I always wanted a really nice leather jacket when I hit goal. I had my circumferential body lift 2.5 weeks ago and last night ordered a beautiful black leather skirt in 2 petite from talbots. I have black to the knee high heel boots that are leather. I still haven't found the perfect jacket but I am a classic ann Taylor kind of girl. Right now motorcycle jackets are more in style and I like clean, tailored looks. I'm thrilled with my skirt purchase. It will look beautiful with a cashmere sweater or a pretty silk blouse. 2 petite (sigh)... :)

A bikini. This is a bit unrealistic, but one can dream.

I want to wear a tight LBD, body con style.

I've dreamt of wearing almost any and every dress from Modcloth.com. I've window shopped on that site for literally years. There was no way I could pull off those styles "before"!

I'm 3 lbs from goal today, and I play with the idea of treating myself to a Modcloth dress. Can't bring myself to, though...

  1. I can't imagine being able to pick one.
  2. I've never ordered clothes online before and would fret and fret about picking the right size and the headache to return.
  3. They're pricey for me, even if I can find the exact $100 Modcloth dress for $65 on ebay...
  4. Since I've flown through sizes in the past year, I've only been shopping at Goodwill for clothes. My Goodwill rocks, and I find the very best stuff. Can't beat $3.59!

Still, I'm drooling over these two: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ryu-Anthropologie-LACE-DRESS-W-CROCHET-MIDDLE-BELL-SLV-/261674870336?pt=US_CSA_WC_Dresses&hash=item3ced09a640 and http://www.ebay.com/itm/Modcloth-Ryu-Mocha-Cream-Lace-Turtleneck-Dress-Size-S-M-L-NWT-/171471154500?pt=US_CSA_WC_Dresses&var=&hash=item27ec7a2d44.

I am definitely realizing I wasn't the only one that held on to clothes hoping one day to fit into them again. I have a beautiful deep maroon dress that I would LOVE to wear again.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
