Frugal benefits

I've been doing the weight-loss thing the past few months. (I admit it, it's doctor's orders.)

So far, so good .. nearly 20 pounds off. (We won't talk about how much to go ...)

And I've found a frugal benefit to weight loss -- my wardrobe is expanding! I recently raided the garage-sale pile and reclaimed 2 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of work pants, and a couple of belts. Woo hoo!

I'm hoping to do another "shopping trip" again, soon!

That is so awesome! I've got 45 lbs. to lose, and it is SO HARD with two little ones (aged 27 months and 10 months) at home. Congrats, because I really know how hard it is to acccomplish!

Way to GO, DW!!! Keep it up! You can do it!!

I've got well over 100 to lose, but would be thrilled to get back to what I weighed when we got married almost 18 years ago!! I see so many wonderful plus sized clothing at goodwill, that is too small for me! =( I'll get there!! We just need to encourage each other!!

You can do it too, Coolwhip! Break it into chunks ... 5 or 10 pounds at a time.
