This goal is huge for me!
But I also find myself struggling with this new “identity” beyond the plus size section.
I am now wearing a large shirt which I probably haven’t done since middle school.
It seems like a world of shopping options have opened up but I’m more confused than ever!

Anyone else? Tips?

Here I am!

    Embrace it!! I used to always wear dark colours. Once I got out of plus sizes, I started buying things in colour!

    Way to go 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻

    Excellent job. Let it be the new you and keep tracking your progress. If you start to gain, rein it back in. You got this.

    I had lost a bunch of weight about 4 years ago and I was able to shop in the regular sized clothes. omg!! you are right, it's like a whole world of options opened up! it was actually FUN to go shopping. I have since gained my weight back, but I'm back on track now to get back down to the smaller clothes I had bought. as far as tips... just take lots of stuff in the dressing room and try everything on. it can be expensive so at first get one great pair of pants and find a few tops to go with it to change it up. then as you are able to afford more clothes, keep buying other peices that you need. congrats on your weight loss and HAVE FUN WITH IT!!

    Amazing job! It can take time to get used to a body that’s a lot different from the one you have now.
