So excited!

I'm very pear shaped and I despise pants lol. Right now the only pants I own, besides some yoga stretchy ones, are a pair of size 14 jeans and then a pair of size 12 cords, with no belt loops. This morning I wore the cords to church and they were so saggy I had to wear a long sweater to cover the bagginess Even though I've only lost 11.5lbs so far I'm really seeing a difference in how my clothes fit. So tomorrow I'm heading to Goodwill to buy some new pants yay! And because I'm so cheap, I even have a 25% off coupon

Awww, Sara, that's fantastic! I can believe it, too! There's nothing "only" about 11# at your weight girl! It really makes a difference. I know once I got down that low, it was a different size pretty quickly. Go you!! Have fun shopping!

You are doing great so see and feel a loss like that! Great job!

You all are making me nuts to get to the Goodwill store. I've been skeptical about the kinds of deals I'll be able to find, but I keep hearing about your smokin' deals over and over. I'll get there in the next week or so and maybe get me some "self-gifts" for Christmas!

Years ago, when we lived in an upscale town near Atlanta, I used to eBay things I got at thrift stores. It was a fairly lucrative hobby (and let me exercise my shopping muscles).

And, hey, when you know the pants are only going to fit for a few weeks (then be re-donated) spending under $5/pair is a plan!

Their prices vary based on location, but at my local one-pants are $3.29 and jeans are $4.99 And they're pretty good about keeping up do date styles. Plus they have a customer rewards program (don't know if it's available everywhere?)-you go in and get a card and then register it online and they send you a 25% off coupon on your next shopping trip Plus, after you scan your card for the first time you're supposed to get a $5 credit coupon. I'm going to use my card today for the first time so hopefully I'll get the $5 coupon to use when I need some new shirts in a couple weeks

Well I'm back I tried on some size 10 jeans and they fit, but it's just not flattering to see a 34 yr old pear shaped me in stretchy jeans that look like a second skin I think another loss of 10lbs or so are needed before I venture into that size again

I ended up getting a pair of size 12 Eddie Baur jeans and then a pair of size 12 Tommy Hilfiger cropped jeans. Now cropped jeans are really not my style, since I normally wear 'mom' jeans lol. But I also found a really cute tunic length sweater (the kind with buttons but you don't button it), and I already have a pair of flats so I'm going to throw a tank top with it and I'll wear the outfit to my Thanksgiving get togethers It's the most stylish outfit I've worn in years-losing weight makes you do crazy things

Thanks for that info, Sara. I'll try to sign up for the customer rewards program and get my coupon. Congrats on your finds. You'll look great for your holiday get-togethers!

I think a size 12 is awesome. I can't wait to be your weight/size again! It's when I finally start feeling more "normal" in my skin again. Good for you!!! You will find those 10s super comfy soon enough!

Congratulations!! I think I will be utilizing Goodwill when I lose a little more.

Can't believe you're talking about how to dress at age 34! I was wearing cropped shirts at age 34, lol. I still wear tight jeans, so when I can fit into a 10, no matter how snug, I'm buying those suckers!
