BF 31 M 37.3 W 50.5 Everything is going in the right direction.


I went out for breakfast with friends this morning. It was great to catch up and I enjoyed my toasted cheese sandwich. But I definitely need a new wardrobe!!! Most of my clothes are black, white or red, with very few patterns. It suited me when I didn't want to draw any attention to myself but now I want to show off the new slimmer me! After breakfast I went to the thrift store. It must be my lucky day! I found 2 Diane von Furstenberg silk wrap dresses for 12 and 14 bucks!!! You should see the big smile on my face! Holiday season and upcoming wedding sorted! :))

Fab news..... So lovely to go out and buy new stuff... It is only then that you realise how far you have come :-)

Skinny...you would know about buying new things...lol! I am now really looking forward to buying a whole new wardrobe once I have reached my goal weight. In the meantime I don't want to spend too much. These dresses have given me a real uplift! As they are wrap dresses they should be ok to accommodate more weight loss. Clothes look so much better when you're slimmer. I always knew that but now I'm seeing it!

I will go to these shops more often. Especially as I'm not done yet with my weight loss. And once the clothes are too big, they are going back there. I have never felt I deserve to spend much on clothes but I think I will treat myself when I'm done!

Very nice on the dresses, Lara. Aren't you the clever one. I'm sure you'll look stunning!

If you don't want to buy too much until you reach goal - maybe you should put a set amount of money away each time you loose a pound - you can then have a massive splurge on a New wardrobe :-)

That is a great way to reward yourself for all your dedication and hard work. The fact that you made it so affordable is even better. That is great. Keep it up :-)
