edited February 2015 in Success Stories
So this is a mini progress thread of sorts. I bought this dress in September, 2014. It was on the clearance rack for $3 and I just couldn't pass it up. I bought it in a smaller size then would actually fit me at the time, because it was a little late in the year to be wearing it. One of those it doesn't fit now, but by Spring it should be a good fit purchases.

So tonight I tried it on again just to see how close to being able to wear it. My hope was that I was close enough to it being the right size that I'd be able to wear it to my Family get together around Easter. Anyway, here's the comparison from the first time I tried it on to tonight.

Sept 26, 2014 vs Tonight (Feb 26, 2015)

    Now it looks too big for you! It's not doing your new, smaller curves justice. I guess that's a good problem to have

    Yeah! It suits you better! But by Easter, will it still be ok? Maybe not and you ll have to find even smaller clothes ^.^ congrats!

    I agree, i think it'll be too big. Too bad in a way cuz its very pretty (love the color!) But awesome in a way too! The top looks like there is too much gappy material. You could alter it or have it altered. Much smoother from the back view....very nice!

    I agree that you should have it altered. A few darts in the back will help it show off your shape more. Right now it doesn't flatter your waist or bust - though it does show off your great legs and arms!

    Update:
    After I posted this, I stuck the dress back in my closet and forgot about it until I stumbled across it tonight.

    New comparison pics for you:

    I used MFP to track my food and a food scale to weigh what I ate or at least made at home. A Fitbit to track my activity and to adjust my calories on MFP according to how active or inactive I was.

    For working out, I used a DVD Program called X-TrainFit at Home, Rockin' Body, and some Leslie Sansone DVDs. In Feb, I started going to the gym. Since Feb, I lift 3 x a week, do cardio 2-3 x a week and try to get 10k steps a day (recently increased to 12k).
