New Dress

Well kind of. I have been shopping at the Goodwill Store because I need some clothes, but I also know I might not be in them for awhile so I don't want to spend a lot of money. Here is a dress I found that fits and is a size 20! I love it! Best of all, I only paid $5.00 for it.

What a pretty dress! Very business/casual! :) I love it on you, too! And $5?! AWESOME!

I only ever buy used clothing, except for underwear ;) teehee

I think its important to buy new clothes as you're losing weight, and using thrift stores is a great way to keep the cost reasonable. It also helps if you have a friend who is also losing weight but a little ahead of you on the curve, and she is shrinking out of the sizes you're shrinking into.

I've found that I need to celebrate my wins with dieting by looking good, because that makes me feel good. Wearing clothes that are baggy and no longer fit just makes me feel sloppy - and then all I want to do is eat ice cream and chocolate chip cookies and not work out.
