Default "First" time clothes shopping...

Hi everyone!

So I allowed myself to buy new clothes for the first time since I started this journey. When I first got back on the weight-loss train back in June, I swore to myself I would not buy any new clothes in the size I was at the time. I was so mad at myself that I had let myself grow out of size 16 jeans into 18. So the only thing I let myself have were 2 pairs of 18 jeans, to hold me over until I could get back into 16's... I didn't care if I had to wash them all the time, I was NOT going to buy any more than that.

The past few weeks I've seen them get increasingly baggy. I've been tripping over them, actually... and today I got my paycheck and I set out in search of some brand new size 16's. I also bought a few new shirts. While I don't really enjoy the physical act of clothes shopping, just being able to buy 16's again was amazing.

Now I have some before/during/afters from my journey so far:

Before:

Back in March. Yes, I'm playing darts in a bar and, yes I realize I have a ridiculous look on my face. I was caught by surprise...

During

Maybe about two weeks ago, I put on the same shirt from the picture above. I actually think I got a little depressed that day because I realize my boobs had shrunk more than the rest of me had...

After

Please ignore my face and hair in both of the following pictures. Off from work today, and I was really too lazy to bother just to go to the store...

1) I like this outfit a lot. And the shirt is a size large as opposed to XL which makes me even happier. (Granted, the brand runs large, but still... )

2) I'm calling this one an incentive shirt. It doesn't look too shabby from the front... but I've got fat rolls on the side and in the back that I need to take care of before I'll consider wearing it in public. I already took the tag off so it's not going anywhere - I'm just gonna have to lose more weight, now won't I?

Annddd that's all.

You really are so beautiful! You already look so much more confident and you SHOULD be. Also, I have to say that you carry your weight VERY well. Thanks for sharing the pictures and I wish you continued success!

Aww, thanks! Yeah, I get that a lot. I guess I'm lucky in that sense. I carry it all in my stomach...which is a pain because when you have small boobs and a big stomach, shirt shopping becomes difficult. Haha. But I've learned how to hide it pretty well...

i think buying a smaller size of something you really like is motivating.

You are very pretty....and now you are getting a really NICE figure. Way to go!
