Got a question... Gender Studies: Do you ever NOT order a particular item off a Medifast menu? Thanks in advance for any response. 2nd question I got is.. I'm a few wks out of.

Surgery.

And my clothes are now big on me. Any tips or advice on how you handled having clothes to wear while you lost weight. I don't want to buy a bunch of clothes at each new size when I, hopefully, will go down another size in several more weeks..

Pls share any advice...

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

Consignment/resale shops, Goodwill, SALES!! It is tough, but sooooo worth it. Good luck and welcome to the Losers Bench!..

Comment #2

Goodwill and thrift stores and garage sales or ask friends to clean out their closets. But what I did most was just sew down the side seams of everything and go in 2 inches each side. I kept doing it til I couldn't anymore. I even did it to underwear lol cause those are not cheap. I don't recommend buying new stuff in the beginning otherwise you just have to keep buying...

Clothing exchanges, Freecycle, thrift and resale shops. Oh, and the occasional trip to the bargain rack at Target. It is a lot easier during warm weather when clothing is cheaper and you dont have to worry about things like outerwear...

Salvation Army has become my friend, I am not planning to buy new clothes until I reach my target weight...

Comment #5

For me it was Goodwill, The Salvation Army Store and places like that. Actually I am still shopping there after two years. So many times you can find clothes with the labels still on them. I have gotten some fantastic jeans there..

Congratulations on losing all the weight. It is so much getting a new wardrobe every couple fo months!!!..

Trish...huney,.

Heres an idea, but you have to understand I am a crazy brit who has been away with work for a few weeks....

All the others on here will know me, so dont take any offence......lol.

DONT WEAR CLOTHES...go butt naked...lol..

I am a bit of a jester I am afraid as you will get to know, but really......

Wearing baggie clothes is a great reminder of what your achieving.. I love to wear my baggy t shirts.....

Just dont spend too much too soon, you will soon notice you get very little use out of clothes at this stage....

Good luck on your journey, enjoy it....

I remember that my husband, who had GBS, bought the next size down in pants and didn't put them on for another week. He then tried them on and they were TOO BIG!!! He had to take all the pants back and get the NEXT size down. He was thrilled and I was thrilled for him...

I think I might actually like the buck naked part, might scare my children and the neighbors though.. poor people, and my boss yeah I'm not thinking he will go for it, my boss is so excited for me but they both (husband and wife) keep looking at my baggy pants and clothes and I can tell there insides are.

Screaming.

.. they are very particular about the way one dresses at the front desk. I have a few more sizes to move down into (had a friend who went through.

Surgery.

She gave me a ton of clothing to move down into) after that I will be in the thrift stores (never liked thift stores I could never find clothing to fit that I liked I am kind of excited about trying now)..

Comment #9

I agree, thrift shops, goodwill, consignment, freecycle.. Fortunately I kept all of the clothes that I grew out of as I got larger, so I'm growing back into them as I.

Lose weight.

And then getting them OUT of the house as they become too big for me. Freecycle is great for this stuff, and doesn't cost you anything...

We have a clothing exchange at our monthly GBS meeting, maybe your area might have something like that...

Comment #12

My surgeon's office has a support group every month twice a month. Each of us can bring our old clothes in for someone else. So if you can connect with someone who has had the srugery already and is a few steps ahead of you, you can really do a clothes swap. It's a good way to get clothes that fit you and you don't have to spend any money at all. I am 3 weeks out and I am already starting to find things are too big now. I mean, my feet and legs are even skinnier than they were a month ago and it's so surreal when I look down!! So, good luck!!..

Comment #13

I dig thru my closet, I have many sizes that no longer fit but now I am able to get in them again...

Comment #14

Thank you all for the good advice and tips!..

Comment #15

Finally my tendency to horde has come in handy. And for some reason I must give the impression of being too poor to buy my own clothes. Anyway, I have been given so many clothes from so many friends that I could not wear and kept them. As I lost the weight I opened up bags of clothes that were like new to me..

Now I have to buy my own clothes cause I am smaller than any of my friends and most of my family. I remember now how much I hate to try on clothes. lol..

Comment #16

I also have hung on to those clothes that I out grew on my way up... so I have clothes ranging from a 20 to a 10 in my closet, I am SO looking forward to passing them on after I outgrow them! Then I will also be going to the salvation army or walmart deal racks... Good luck Trish, save your $$ for the good stuff when your feeling all hot stuff!!!..

Comment #17

Trish, I am having the same problem, my clothes are so baggy on me, and I am in between sizes right now. I know once I get to the next size I will be doing better, I have plenty of clothes that don't quite fit yet...

Comment #18

I've been hitting up my sister's closet and buying things that are on sale, but truthfully, I haven't boughten too much stuff. I've just been wearing clothes that are too big for me. Soon, I think I will go buy some new stuff. I'm waiting to lose 9 more lbs and than I will be in onederland and hopefully in size 18 or 16! No more 20's baby!!..
