Thought it would be fun to start a thread to show off all of the new outfits that IP is just FORCING US to downsize to!
For reference, before IP I started in
Top: size XL (tight)/XXL
Jeans: tight size 16 Old Navy Dreamer Bootcut Jeans (in denial about size 18/20 I am sure, I ripped denim seams)
Today I am wearing:
Shirt: The Limited, size Small - bought this weekend
Jeans: Old Navy Sweetheart Skinny, size 2 - bought when I reached goal
Boots: Victorias Secret - bought over 10 years ago and could never fit them over my calves...they zipped - and over the jeans!!!
You look great, Lizz! I can't wait to get to goal. You and I are the same height and started out at similar weight, so whenever I see new photos of you, it is so motivating for me to stay 100% and keep going! Thanks!
Started IP in a tight 18 pants and starting to buy 2XL tops. Today...size 8 Worthington slacks and a medium turtleneck (a lot of my tops are smalls though!).
Will take a pic later and try to load...
Cindy quote from Lisa: "If we only focus on what we're missing (and how soon we can have it again), we're not learning a thing about how to keep it off, & all the struggle to actually lose the weight is for nothing!"

Size 12 jeans. Some 14 jeans that are cut small, but they are getting loose.
I never, ever put my clothes into the dryer, for fear they would shrink and I'd be embarrassed. Now I put all my clothes into the dryer so that they will shrink and look better on me!
As for boots, I'm in the process of shopping for my first pair of boots that are knee-high. I never had a pair because they never went up over my calves. I'm really excited that I will get a pair this season. In fact, my daughters are buying them for me as a present!

My scrub pants are 2x. Today I grabbed a pair of XL's and decided to try them on. Very comfy. I do have lee-way because of the design of the pockets, but I am shocked I they even came past my thighs. I am not ready to buy new scrubs, I am hoping to wait until after the Holidays.
This weekend I went shopping and got S/M shirts and size 10 pants...and today I bought a new bra that was 4 inches smaller on that band! The lady was like "what was the point of wearing this thing, you can fit two of you in that"
