i don't know if this is a big deal or not, but today i HAD to go buy some new jeans because as much as i wanted to be cheap and not buy new clothes until i'm done, my pants were just simply too big [and some of my skirts too]. it's so weird! i'm not used to clothes being too big! i mean, it's just such a small thing cuz i went from a 16 to a 14, but i couldnt keep my sixteens on, and i didnt want a "pants fall-age" situation!

That is great!! Good job! That is a very wonderful feeling when your clothes are too big! Your hard work is paying off :)

That's awesome! I'm not used to clothes being too big either. It's weird going from always buying bigger to buying smaller.

Isn't it nice when your hard work pays off? :)

Congratulations! :cheer: I had a similar experience this morning. When I put my pants on they were really lose, and I thought, blast, I accidently grabbed my old 18s, but they where the 16s! Hurray, I'm almost ready to get size 14!!

Good for you!!! I'm at the same point--- lots of weight lost already, still more to go... hesitant to waste money on new clothes for the "in between" period... but know I HAVE TO or look awful...

I realized though that I am definitely out of the 20's now and should be wearing 18's... I went to Lane Bryant over the weekend and tried on a lot so I know they fit... now I just gotta suck it up and pay for some. At least a couple pairs of dress pants to wear to work! (I have one pair of size 18 jeans)

It's weird-- I went through my closet and realized that I only had fat clothes and thin clothes (from when I was 215). But my "thin pants" from 215 lbs are only a 16, so I figure at 262 I'm in an 18, I will be able to get at least a few month's usage out of new pants before I'm down to a 16...
