I'm still here just haven't posted in a while. I really started kicking up the exercise so I am very hopeful for a size 14 jeans by July. Eventhough a size 16 seems like a much more reasonable of a goal. Hope everyone had a great week and will have a great weekend.

Take care - Monica

Good news, bad news ... I tried on the sundress that didn't fit at Easter and it fit perfectly. But I also ordered some on-sale jeans, and even though I took my measurements first, the jeans were way too tight. I guess they're goal jeans now.

Good morning everyone!

I went to my mom's for a couple of weeks. She bought me a pair of capris that were size 16 and I knew I couldn't get into them so I didn't even try them on. Then we went shopping and I bought another pair of capris. I thought they were 18s. When I tried them on they were pretty snug, (depressing) but cute, so I bought them. When I got home I put on my reading glasses and looked at the tag more closely. They were16s. Then I tried the pair my mom got me and they fit! 14s here I come.

Jazlyn - congratulations!

I haven't done much clothes-shopping recently, but I did need some new workout pants. I took a chance and ordered L instead of the XL I'd been wearing - and they fit perfectly.

Picked up a pair of size 14 jeans at Target today. I can't even remember the last time I bought jeans somewhere other than a plus-size store. Perhaps I'll even be wearing a size 12 by the 4th of July?

Hi Ladies,
I hope it's not too late to join this group. We've had a lot of stressful situations since the beginning of the year but I am ready to get back on track and work on weight loss instead of feeding my stress. I am in a 3X now and I hope to be in a 2X or maybe even a few 1Xs by 4th of July.

I've just restarted Atkins this week, but I've enjoyed the support of challenge groups in the past...

It's difficult to say what size I am right now because every store tells me something different. I also have bought some catalog/online clothes that tell me a different story each time...LOL....but I'll just assume I'm about a size 26 pant/ 3x shirt. It has always been real difficult for me to go down a size at a fast pace, especially in pant sizes...but perhaps my clothes will at the very least be baggy by the 4th of July...LOL. To be honest, I am more looking forward to buying clothes in in the Fall...but I wish everyone here a happy success for the 4th of July challenge

Hi ladies, I don't have a scale but I feel like my tops are getting looser. I'm not pulling them down over the belly as much as I usually do. So that's a good sign. Just have to keep it up. I bought 2 swimsuits that are both a 24 W. One fits comfortably and the other is OH MY GOODNESS I CAN'T BREATHE Tight. So that will be my "working towards goal" suit. How is everyone else dong?

I picked up a couple of tops on sale, and it was nice to go down to a large . . . but sizes are deceptive and a couple of extra larges were snug. I am trying not to buy too much as I have a lot of things in my closet I will be able to fit into for the summer. Pants are always more challenging, but a couple of my very snug favorites are feeling very comfortable. That is a real boost that will keep me on the straight and narrow through my next challenge, July 4. I look forward to buying a pair or two of good fitting jeans later this summer.

What clothing stores do you like the best? For the past couple of years, I've shopped mostly at Fashion Bug....but also at Cato, Lane Bryant (I don't really like their clothes) Catherines. When I was thinner I could shop at Department stores like JC Penny's, but now I'm beyond their biggest size (24) I don't usually shop online because I like to try things on. I did buy jeans through the catalog 'Woman Within'...didn't fit correctly, but I kept them. Also bought 2 shirts through 'Just My Size'....they're cheap ; ) Plus size can be so expensive...I wear my clothes completely out! LOL....I do need some new clothes..

Hi Everyone! I am still here trudging along. I have met one of my goals, and my wardrobe is officially toooo big!! I am also below 250! I am at 248! Now, if I could only exercise consistently!!!! I am losing slowly, but I thank God I am losing!!! I hoped to be a size 20 by July 4th, but it takes so long between sizes for me now. I am currently a size 22-24 down from a 28-26 so I am happy with that as long as I keep trending downward!!!

Going to really buckle down and exercise this month!!!!

Tried on a size 12 and a size 14 Gloria Vanderbilt denim capris today. The 14 was fine, but the 12 was - at worst - a little tight going on, but looked and felt great. When the challenge started, I was wearing a 16!

Way to go ladyn and bianca! I can get into my 16 jeans which was my goal, but I also said comfortably and I am not there yet. 20s wont stay up anymore so I guess that is a good sign. A little over two weeks, hope I make it!

My clothes are at least looser! ; ) Wishing everyone on this thread lots of success! Happy Holidays!!!

Yay, Amber!! I'm not buying clothes either. One reason, I can't afford any. Plus, it would just be a waste since I'm going to lose a whole lot more weight.(Smiling confidently!.)

Bianca- Sounds good to me. Six months away. Too far or just right to really feel good about ourselves?
