Default Motivation clothing

So we all have our own weight loss goals. I know that I have a closet full of jeans that I would like to fit into. But is there a particular item of clothing that you cannot wait to wear? Something when you hit your goal (or mini goal) you are excited to put on? I have a couple of things, but one goal of mine is to wear this coat next winter. The picture really does not do it justice, but it is a nice burnt orange wool coat. I got it for a steal on clearance at the end of winter. The original price was $250, but I got it for $25. So I really want to wear it this winter. So, what is your goal clothing?

I don't have "THE ULTIMATE GOAL" clothing...but I do have couple items that I brought from Korea. One of them is a pair of jeans, very cute, and I ordered it online, wasn't able to fit in, ended up losing weight from stress, then was able to wear it. It was still TIGHT on me, though... My goal on the way to the ultimate goal would be being able to wear that one. And as I'm hoping to reach the ultimate goal by this winter or at least by March of next year, (-70 lbs) that jean would be BIG on me when I reach the goal.

The coat is not my ultimate goal either. It is just an along the way goal as well. My ULTIMATE goal is for it to be too big for me. I don't have an ultimate goal outfit I would like to wear though.

I have this pair of Lucky Brand jeans that I got half price and they're adorable.... all I need to lose is my first goal (meaning i need to be at 179) in order to fit into them.

I've just hit my goals a few days ago. I went out and bought a bunch of new clothes! I hope you all reach yours.

Last year I lost 20 pounds and was in the best shape of my life and went out and bought lots of new, cute clothes to fit my body... Since then I've gained it all back, and now am starting to lose again, but SLOWLY (grrr)... so I would like to be able to wear those "slim" clothes again!

I swear, my closet has sizes ranging from 1 to 8's... it's like there's three different girls sharing my clothes!

Can I name something that I wear, but not clothes?!

My wedding set I had to take them off during my pregnancy (which was over 2 years ago) because I got swollen... I put them on a chain around my neck, instead. And I haven't been able to wear them since. I have a beautiful diamond ring, and a wedding band.. tucked away and it really upsets and saddens me that I can't wear them. I started my pregnancy at 160 and had to take them off in the 170's.. I'm 187 and change now, I'm hoping they fit once I hit my 170's. I hope, I hope.

My actual motivating piece of clothing is a CUTE pair of jeans I wore before my pregnancy/marriage.. when I was 125-130. I still have them. I LOVE them.

And I have a pair of beige-like pants that I bought from New York & Company when I was smaller.. I think they're size 8. They look like these-



I loved them. They made my butt look HOT

I don't have a picture, but I have this pair of jeans sitting in my closet that look freaking amazing on me. I'm weirdly built so, even though I'm not freakishly tall, all my height is legs.

These jeans, man. They're amazing. The perfect length, wash, soft. Amazing times in those jeans. Met my husband in them, hit it big at the blackjack tables in Vegas with them, the list goes on.

I'm getting back into those jeans, my friend.

That coat looks like it will be adorable on.

I don't think I have any piece of clothing on that I'm dying to get back into. The smaller stuff has been put away for so long. I'll have to think about it ...

I don't have a picture but I got a pair of jeans at Old Navy like 8 years ago for $3. They were my favorite jeans ever and once I hit like 185 I couldn't wear them anymore. I want to wear them again!

I have two things (well, technically three) that I am eager to get back into:

#1 -- an old pair of skinny jeans from years ago when I was very fit

#2 -- a pair of short-shorts and a tank top that I used to wear when I would go hiking.

When I can fit back into either of those things, I will be pretty excited about it!

I don't have any motivating clothing either. I just don't want to feel like crap when I walk into a dressing room and I realize that all of the sizes I used to where don't fit.

I have a pair of cranberry crop pants that are a mini goal for me. They're size 18, brushed twill, and when they fit, they look great on me. I only got to wear them twice after I bought them, so hopefully I can get into them at some point this summer! (Already down to 20 from 22, so I have faith that they will be mine before too long!)
