I'm not good at loading/copying pictures, as you can see. Can't get the image size I want, and can't get the pictures in the order I wanted to.
I was getting ready to go out the other day and stopped in the bathroom to grab my lipstick. As I went to grab it, I glanced in the mirror, and stopped dead in my tracks. I looked a fright. I had a loose blouse and jacket on and I looked a mess. I went and tucked in the blouse and put on a zip-up sweater that fitted property. What a difference. I felt a hundred percent better. The baggy clothes (in my opinion) made me look heavier. I have some bulges, but I felt more "put together" in the fitted clothes.
How do you feel in the clothes you're wearing?
I've got to make a trip to the local thrift shops...and I've got to start trying things on before I buy them!
(BTW, I have since cleaned my bathroom mirror! )
You absolutely do look great in the fitted jacket. I guess you have moved to a warmer climate? Congratulations!

I still have a belly so I still like things a little flowy. Definitely less flowy than I used to wear though! I do wear a lot of cardigans/wraps/etc because I'm cold always and if it has a zip, I've been going for fitted size but if it's a wrap, I'm ok with looser because it feels more cozy!

I definitely stick to fitted clothes these days. As soon as something gets too loose, I put it in the donation bin. This is good for me because it motivates me not to regain, as clothes are expensive!

I recently transitioned to "maintenance" and have been wearing only fitted clothes. I think it helps me be more conscious of my body, and helps me be mindful about keeping at a steady weight.
