So all of you baggy clothes wearers out there, buy some clothes that fit and you will look 20 pounds smaller. Just my take on clothes that are too big today.

It makes a huge difference!

No more bag lady for me!

I didn't even realize it until I got home and looked in the mirror. I hate spending money that I really don't have, but I am excited for new clothes. Sometimes you just have to embrace the change and the weight loss.

Here's to saying GOODBYE! to baggy clothes!

I think it's important because it helps us to actually own the results of our weightloss efforts. After I put on the weight, it took several years to find clothes that worked. I kept trying on things that would have flattered my old, slim shape and my reflection in the shop mirror was extremely disheartening.

I eventually got used to just looking for belly-hiding tops. In fact, the one in my "after" photo is one of them and it does my lovely new shape no favours whatsoever!

So, when I recently tried on a clingy top in the sales for a lark, I was absolutely amazed how good it looked. It's exciting to know that unfamiliar, shapely silhouette belongs to me!

It only occurred to me while writing about my year on JUDDD, how mirror-phobic I'd become and how that's no longer a problem.

So yes! Chuck out the clothes that are now too big. Burn your bridges and acquire a few nice things that confirm how you're succeeding. It doesn't have to cost a fortune. My image-changing clingy top was £6 from the supermarket. I've sent some really lovely unworn size 14 and 16 items to the charity shops. Go on, inspire yourself!

In February when I've been at goal for a year I will take all my 2x, 3x and 20's out of storage and donate them. I'm waiting a little longer for every thing between 16P- 6P. I'm too scared.

Carly, if you're planning on a pregnancy, maybe you should keep some of the bigger tops? And stretchy leggings if you have them. For sure, get rid of anything X-size. I sincerely regret not getting rid of larger sizes in the past. Having to buy a larger size should have been a wake-up call. And it was this last time since it prompted me to put on the brakes. Now I'm sitting here with a few size large sweaters that I will only be wearing at home this year - which is kind of nice, I like roomy sweaters for layering and comfy-ness since it gets so cold up here.

That is most definitely the plan... That they never get worn again.

Well, I am hoping to get pregnant in the not so distant future. The leggings I'll keep, but I may need official maternity clothing especially for work. I suspect that even at 8 months pregnant I would look ridiculous in a 2X blouse and size 16 slacks... One might not even be able to tell I was pregnant under all that fabric

Good plan Sirtain.

I think it was when I realised how much time I was losing, having to stop and pull up my pants so often, that I took the plunge and bought a smaller size!

I have the 'pull up the pants syndrome' as well, mine also includes the 'saggy butt area', so new pants for many of us!

I did buy something called 'invisabelt' - there are several different kinds, but google it. These are clear plastic and they work great holding up your pants and are flat so you can still wear your shirt over it (if you aren't tucking it in) and they aren't bulky looking.

I am fitting into smaller pants, but can still wear some stretch Levi's that are 18W!! 33 lbs more was stuffed into those jeans last year. The butt starts to sag after about 30 minutes out of the dryer, but they are way more comfortable than my 14s.

Right before I started JUDDD, I bought three summer outfits. All the size 10 shorts were too small, so I bought size 12s.

Within one week, all the shorts were too big and look baggy on me. But I wore them, could not return them, and I still wear them, enjoying the fact that they are too big for me and are very comfortable!

I just saw this at a boutique earlier this week! Very cool!

I'm feeling kind of squishy in the lower stomach area, which I hope means that section is about to melt off. I'm ready! I think my Levis would fit a whole lot better if that were gone, or at least smaller.

I got stung by a last Sunday. Actually, it was a wasp - a yellow jacket to be exact. On my right index finger. I have had an irrational fear of bees and wasps for many years. Don't know why...so this was a real treat.

I haven't been stung by anything in over 30 years - since I was a kid! I iced it that day, and although I had a red spot where it got me, it didn't swell or itch or even hurt that much once the initial pain faded. But the next evening, it started to swell. All yesterday and most of today my finger has been swollen to probably 1.5 its normal size, angry red, and a bit warm to the touch. It's starting to fade now, although still not normal.

According to info on the internet, this reaction is perfectly normal, and not considered an allergic reaction, just a localized reaction to the venom. It may last a week or more. Funsies.

Oh yeah, I also got bit by a fire ant. That'll teach me to pull weeds for my mom.

No biggie, just wanted to share.

Take care of yourself, Carol!! My aunt stepped into a fire ant bed while she was gardening and ended up getting a flesh-eating virus. They nearly had to amputate her legs. Fire ants can do some severe damage! My sis in law also stepped into a fire ant bed and was out of commission for weeks. The yellow jacket sting doesn't sound fun either.

I've never been stung by a newbie.

Yay for squishy fat syndrome!!! Yup, you're headed for an inches whoosh if not a scale whoosh!

I don't know if people do this anymore and it's probably too late - but we used to put mud on stings when I was a kid and it worked quite well?? When my son got stung by something or other a few years ago, I sucked out the venom pronto (spit it out of course). He sure was screaming - not sure if it was the sting or being attacked by a blood sucking vampire of a mother... It was gone that night though - not from his memory, I think he's still traumatized - by me or wasps/hornets/bees, I'm not sure.

My dad did that for me when I was a kid too, Jacqueline. I got stung on my ear when I sat down on an old bench in a neighbor's tree house.

Thanks for the sympathy JBs! I just needed to whine. If this is the worst thing I have to complain about, then everything is just fine. Finger is doing better tonight. Still an angry red, but less swollen feeling and much less uncomfortable.

I've never tried the mud treatment. Heard about the baking soda/water paste thing, but didn't do it. Thankfully no vampire mama either! She'd do it too, if she thought it would help, even though I'm 46 years old!
