what new clothes will do for you. I've been losing steady now for 10 months with not much fuss from people at all. This past week I bought all new shrits and for the first time people are coming out of the woodwork telling me how good I look. This week has been so good and it's only Tuesday.

I also took two pair of jeans out of the closet today. Both are size 44s. I am wearing one of them today. It's a large 44 because the other ones would not fit at all but hay the tag still says 44 LOL. They are probably around a 46. I got a pair from frenchiepolarbear that were 46's and the waist fits. So I think it's safe to say I can wear a 46 now. That's down from 58s last spring. This week has been so motivating for me. It's seems like my body is really changing day to day now.

That's so awsome!

I can't wait to start buying new clothes. I especially can't wait until I can start shopping in the "Misses" department. I've been shopping in the "plus" dept since my teen years.

Thanks for sharing! What an inspiration to keep going...

All Right Howie!!! What a feeling, Huh??

Same thing for me.....As i'm now wearing clothes that reflect my weight loss, it is more noticeable and i do get comments from coworkers...

There may be big differences in the in size depending on the model..the XXL i sent you used to fit perfectly when i was around 320...However, i have another XXL i once bought without trying it on thinking it would be ok. I was not even able to tie it on.... and it was too late to exchange. I kept it in my closet and now it fits perfect, just like the XL i bought last week...

Now that people know i sent you my old clothes, JILLEGAL, please don't go starting any rumors here..... :lol: :lol:

that is awesome howie. I've been finding me some new duds online that I want to get when our tax money comes in. It's about to become necessity for me to get some new clothes. Last time I checked it's illegal to walk around nude here in the great state of Oklahoma. ;)

You know, I work in a clothing store and get 50% off all clothes.. unfortunately none of their clothes fit me properly so I can't ever really buy anything :( Every once in a while I'll find something that fits really good and looks good, and I do feel like a million bucks. Who knew clothes could play such an important role, eh?

Your so bad Jill. I will take a picture but they don't fit quite right just yet. Jeans are different they can be snug around the waiste and fit and look fine. Dress pants just don't look good yet in that size. Give a couple weeks and they will.
