I will not cry, nor will I hide from this mornings weigh in. I will turn this back around. I am a strong woman and I can do this.

You can do this and will turn it back around. The blouse still looks good, but is definitely on the bigger side. If you lose much more, I am afraid the blouse will have to go. What do the other FS members think?

It looks comfortable. In my past experience I've tended to wear form fitting to show off the loss. To me something that hangs smoothly is more attractive than something so tight it shows bulges.

It looks comfortable and still looks nice and I would keep it for awhile. Probably until you start wearing shorter sleeves when the weather gets warmer.

I think it looks just fine, I have some myself that are a wee bit too big BUT until I lose some of the muffin tops I call them they are still in my closet..

Def keep it. It looks good, and yes a little big. But some days you want a little big. So it is a win win for now

I'd keep it too for now. Like other comment said, some days you want loose, flowy and comfy. Only thing I consider since we're going into the summer months is if you would wear it since it's long sleeves.

All the big clothes I kept were "wash and wear" fabrics, meaning no ironing needed. 😁 So I'll say...keep it even if it's big. I think that'll look good on you with leggings 😉

If the shirt makes you feel good, then keep it! I think it looks nice! And yes, you will turn it back around. You are already on the right path by posting. Plus, you know that you cant actually gain 8 pounds in a couple of days. Its frustrating but not forever.

its a nice color on you, and sometimes you just want something that is a little roomy/flowy. I think it looks very nice.

I feel your pain. I weighed in Thursday and then again this morning - gain of 4 pounds. I was traveling and feel off the carb wagon. Biscuits for breakfast, pizza for supper, etc.... can't look back, can't undo it. Climbed back on the carb wagon, went to the pool this afternoon, and started fresh today. As for the shirt, DONATE IT!!! Yes it is a good color for you, I am sure that is comfortable. But you have worked hard to get where you are. The shirt is the old you, If it doesn't show the great changes you have made, it does not belong in your wardrobe.

Keep it. Looks nice, great color. Just don't wear it with pants that are too big for you.

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. The keep it's have it with 10 votes, so I'll keep this one for one more go round. I truly appreciate everyone's comments. Fishingwidow just so you know the shirt is paper thin so it's one of those long sleeve shirts that I have to wear a cami under. It's definitely a spring/summer wear item, and so I'm fortunate that the temps here dropped back into the 80's this week, giving me an opportunity to go thru some more of those long sleeve shirts that I haven't worn for the purge yet. Supposed to stay this way all week, so fingers crossed that I can get a few more of those out of the closet before triple digits set in.
