I had some serious fun. It was a long time coming, but I finally let loose. Big sale at Tommy Hilfiger so I splurged. First time I've ever had designer clothes. I can't believe how good a custom taper fit shirt fits on me. So much joy.
I bought 2 pairs of pants, a pair of shorts and 2 shirts. My total was $116. With the sale price and a extra 25% off total coupon I saved $118, lol more than my total. I think I did real good.

14 months ago I was wearing a 44" waist. Today I'm wearing a 31" waist. Atkins rocks !

I'm looking forward to a few more sprees to continue creating a new wardrobe.

@PeeFat - Congrats! Shopping can be soooooooo overwhelming when you lose weight. Have to get everything and don't know what type of style or clothes look best on you.
I finally went shopping yesterday (skipped out at lunchtime) and asked the store clerk to be my "Stacey and Clinton from What Not to Wear" and help me find clothes, shoes, accessories. Boy she had fun and it was definitely an uplifting time. To have someone else see you in the before and after pictures and say "OMG If I had a body like that, I would dress that this all of the time!". Definitely a HUGE ego booster!
Congrats again and post pictures Smile

@PeeFat Wow! That's a great success story. I'm looking forward to being there myself. And to think, I was stoked when my progress bar changed to orange! Wink I started out at the same place wearing size 44's that were very tight. I'm now in 42's fitting very comfortably. I'll get there. Just don't buy out all of the 31's before I get there!
First goal: 299 lbs - completed 11/8/14
Second goal: 280 lbs - completed
Third goal: 260 lbs - in progress
Fourth goal: 240 lbs
Fifth goal: 220 lbs
Final goal: 200 lbs
I'll review where I want to be at this point.

I did the same thing this weekend! And I tried on shorts from my closet that were too small to wear the last couple summers and they fit perfect this year. Its like a whole new wardrobe. Enjoy the new clothes!

Losing weight is so hard, even when life is going perfectly. My hat's off to all of you who soldier on through life's trials and tribulations.
