making progress...

I'm happy to report I am down two shirt sizes!

As you know, I recently started a new job.  I've been getting by with my old work clothes, because I absolutely refused to spend any money on clothing that won't fit me in another few months.  Not to mention how much money I've spent over the years buying clothes that looked good in the store, but looked terrible when I got home.  (Yes, I'm bad about returning stuff.  Let's not go there.)  Or things I bought that were passable or good enough, but made me feel dumpy or old.  This weekend I went to the store to return a sweater I bought for a dinner I wasn't able to attend. While there I decided to see what they had on clearance and found several dress shirts on the cheap.  (Just gotta say it's totally ridiculous how much these plus size clothing stores charge!)  So, not only did I spend less than $15.00 each, the shirts were two sizes smaller than normal!

About a year ago I packed up all my clothes from when I lost 80 lbs on Medifast.  (I did Medifast from December 2009 through about September 2010.)  When I was done I couldn't believe I had 5 tote boxes full of almost-new clothing.  Mostly summer stuff.   So, when summer comes I will be all set for clothes - provided I am down another 50 lbs by then.
