If you were like some of us you possibly needed a bigger size and refused to go up anymore. It'll happen be patient.
As you lose more and sizes go down you will be surprised how few lbs. require a smaller size.

I know what you mean. It took FOREVER to go to a smaller size. I'm also 9 weeks out; not sure how many pounds since I don't weigh ~ but probably near 50. At last dr. visit it was 42. I was in a very tight 20 Tall and refused to go to a bigger size. In just the past 2 weeks, my DH has said, "You need to get some new pants, those are getting way too baggy." Now, all of a sudden, every pair of 20's that I put on, are way too big. I totally missed getting to wear all of my Size 20 shorts this summer and am so amazed at that.
I bet it will happen as quickly for you. What did happen is that my blouses (3X) are too big but I still wear most the 'flowing' ones anyway. I have found some XL Tall blouses that fit pretty nicely, but am not spending $$ on anything much yet. If the next 50 pounds go anything like the 1st 50, I won't be able to wear anything for more than a few weeks. Problem is that everything has to be a Tall size ~ and you never find those at consignment or Thrift stores.
