    Picked up a cold this week and feeling kind of blah. I am about to take the dogs down to the lake for a walk and gave myself permission to stop and have a veggie burger (with fries for the pups) which would have no doubt led to a vanilla shake too ... but instead I am eating soup before I leave. I'm not 100% sure that this soup only plan is going to fly - but - so far it is a victory :)

    Pants still fit, jacket still zips up. Maybe a bit snugger this year but all is not lost. Looking forward to a looser future!

    Probably too much information - but can pull non stretchy waistband jeans down without opening button or zip 😬🥴😉

    I had bought one of those elastic belts that snaps onto belt loops. It let me wear my size 24 shorts until I found the 18s in my drawers. Even the 18s are big. I will implement the elastic belt soon and I don't plan to buy new shorts til just before I go visit family in Canada come mid July.

    I know you’re a busy woman Nic but I highly recommend thrift shopping at Goodwill or the like. I had to replace my clothes at least three times! I now have clothes that are much better quality than what I wore at top weight. Of course, I didn’t do this with underwear or pajamas and stuck with items that were washable. Many things still had original tags and had never been worn.
    The only drawback is having the time to regularly shop.

    I did my big weight loss during COVID....was laughable at times. Underwear literally falling off all the time - and trying to order new underwear online. Bottoms were okay...bras!!!! That was laughable.
    But a really lovely challenge to have! Congratulations, Nic :)

    For right now i am shopping out of my closet. I was down to 208lbs at one point like 8 or 9 years ago, so there's that. Bras are killing me though. I did go buy new underwear as well lol
