I have the same problem -- I'm down two to three dresses sizes. I have trouble telling what looks good on me now... Does it really look good? Or does it just look so much better than before that I think it looks good when it doesn't? (hello skinny jeans!) I also can't see myself compared to others. I would have been really good at placing myself in a line up before... now I have no idea how I look compared to other people!

Anyways congrats on the loss and on the new clothes! Keep up the good work!

Same here, I have noticed my clothes fit a bit looser but I don't want to buy clothes for my "in-between" stage. Although I need work out pants that don't fall down with my workouts.
