**high five**!!!  

In the meantime, try and wear dresses/skirts that are more forgiving so that you are at least comfortable.  

Best of luck 🙂

Everyone is different, but feeling good and confident in what you wear because its flattering can go along way in supporting your healthy decisions.

Clothes that fit right, even if they are bigger than what you want, can give you the confidence and help you feel good so that you don’t have the “what the hell my clothes are already tight so Ill splurge” mindset.

Just another point of view and something to think about. As long as you are not buying the new clothes as an acceptance that you will continue to get bigger, but instead recognizing that this is alife long journey and at this point in time you slipped up. You still deserve to feel confident and look good.

Ugh, I am in the same situation! I just caved and bought a new bra in a larger cup size (but ONLY one) because my weight gain is most obvious in my boobs and tummy.

I am wearing skirts a lot until I work off a few pounds. I have gained about 12-15lbs since last year, and on a 4’11” petite frame, that is a significant gain in the waistline! Especially at certain times of the month when one is a little more bloated than usual.

Two years ago, I got great toning and weight loss results by using jillian michaels “30 Day Shred”… and I just ordered two more of her DVD’s for variety. I’ve been slacking since I started a summer class, and quit my daycare job chasing kids around and lifting them all day. Gained 5 lbs in 3 weeks!

I REFUSE to buy new clothes a)because I can’t afford it; b)I know I can lose this weight, since I did it before; and c)If I get any bigger, I won’t be getting my wedding gown altered, I will be buying a new one… and I can’t afford that!

@Mrs.Jansen:  Well, how hard it is depends… on how out of shape you are! The first time I did it, (the VERY first day) was very challenging and I was sore for like, 3 days. But, I was stupendously out of shape… like, went from 0 exercising and working in an office all day, to trying to use 5 lb weights. That was kinda dumb of me, haha.

The videos are challenging, but she has an easy version of almost every move that you can do to work your way up (or, if you have bad knees, not get injured). I would start with 1 or 2 lb hand weights if you don’t currently lift at all.

When I started the “Shred” again recently it was much easier, because I’ve been hiking, and until 4 weeks ago was running around after 2 yr olds like a crazy person all day. I also went to the gym occasionally (sporadically) with Fiance.

I’m a big fan! If you are consistent (do it every day or at least every other day), and don’t overeat, you will see fast results and you will see muscles tone up quickly.
