A good problem to have!

I just discovered a problem! I booked a trip last night...we leave on 1/25. I'm super excited....but I have a problem. I don't know what to wear!!!!

I've lost a little over 30lbs since my last trip to WDW. While I had a standard "parks uniform" I could count on for every day in the parks, my pants no longer stay up! I really don't know what I'm going to wear since I'm still in the losing stage of my journey and only own 2 pair of pants that fit!

Thanks WISH boards for helping me have this "not-as-big" problem!

May your "problems" continue!!

I am facing the same thing. If I continue as well as I have been then I will have a major problem with what to wear to work in a month or so. I actually looked at my closet stuffed with clothes and thought "I really hate to have to replace all of this!" But this is my first weight loss wardrobe-- everything I bought when I lost 50 pounds. Because I knew that would still be an "in between" wardrobe I went cheap-- I bought most all of it at the Goodwill. We have a really nice one near us. And I shopped on the clearance racks any time I was out. I also have a friend that is a great seamstress so she altered some of my favorite shirts and has said she can take my current pants in so they will work for a few more months.


Check out your local thrift stores and check out the clearance racks of your favorite stores and online. See if anyone you know sews and might be able to take your pants in. Or if all else fails-- buy a good belt! I bought one that is stretchy -- not really sure how to describe it, no holes, just stretchy fabric so I can adjust it how ever I need to.

Have a great trip!

That's fantastic. Great job! I have lost and gained weight over the years but this year I'm determined to lose it for good. I've kept most of my small clothes in a drawer and I'm looking forward to getting back in them. My ultimate goal is a pair of Calvin Klein jeans (size 10) that I wore before my first daughter was born. They're still in my closet and I would love to be able to slide those puppies on.
