Shopping issues

I've lost a lot of weight...and nothing fits

Nor can I find pants that meet my requirements (pockets, fabric feels good, size/color/cost are acceptable)

😞

Re: Shopping issues

That's a good problem to have though, snafu. Congratulations on the weight loss!

Re: Shopping issues

Have you tried all types of shops? it's amazing what you can find in shops you wouldn't normally visit when you were bigger.

woohoo! Great on weight loss, sorry about clothes. When I began my pet care (dog walking) gig I went from a 10 to a 6 within a month! Threw the 10s out. Bought a couple pair of jeans, pixies from Old Navy that fit ok. But then did some 'athleisure' things. Basically stretchy pants/leggings. Longer tops and nice athletic-ish shoes.

Amazon became my place for shopping. I have prime and pay no shipping.

Haven't done the doggy walking for a bit and I am regretting tossing those 10s now.

Re: Shopping issues

my weight is fluctuating a bit - by about 2 pounds right now.... now I'm worried that if I buy new clothes I'll regain weight and nothing will fit .... again! ARRRG!

Re: Shopping issues

I just went through that this afternoon. I saw a nice pair of pants on 50% off sale online and wanted to buy them but I couldn't decide on the size. I have a similar pair (same store, same cut, different fabric) that I loved... 8 pounds ago. They still fit, but not comfortably and don't look as good. What to do, what to do? Go up a size and be able to wear them now? Get the same size and be able to wear them as my weight goes back down to normal?

I got the same size.
