Gotten myself down to fitting in a 34" waist jeans, but, my thighs/quads too large to fit comfortably in the legs.

Ate some homemade chocolate-chip-oatmeal cookies with flour for the first time in MONTHS, since Christmas, and THEY WEREN'T VERY GOOD. I am totally unsatisfied. They were too sweet, too heartburny, and I can't believe I was ever so obsessed with them.

OMG, I've gotten sooo frustrated with clothing stores now because of all this statistical marketting BS. Even when I was heavier I liked clothes that were more close-fitting, and now that I'm thinner, it has become almost impossible because I am TAAALL. Close to 5'10". Not runway-model proportions or anything, I still have a broad ribcage and thick muscular legs, but still proportionally a lot skinnier than design statistics apparently anticipate. Everything that fits nice around the chest and waist ends about two inches above the top of my pants, and anything long enough hangs on me like a tent. And dont even get me started on @#(&@)#(&@@ "womens fit tshirts", not the babydoll ones, the ones that are extra wide and extra short which seem to be replacing the babydoll style on all my favorite cheap internet tshirt sites.

Also, as the absolute last straw, I asked for a sewing machine for xmas and have been teaching myself to sew, ideally with the ultimate goal of tailoring things/making my own crap. Yeah its a lot of time and money but luckily I have really been enjoying it

I feel you on this one. I've dropped to a 32 waist, and at 6'3" with a 36" inseam, it's practically impossible to find appropriately sized pants, at least at the prices I can afford. Even shorts are somewhat ridiculous because the "tall" shorts only go down to 34 and 36 inch waists. So I have to deal with 34" inseam pants, and shorts that come to mid-thigh or higher when I sit down (except in athletic shorts). Why can't Big and Tall sections be "Big and/or Tall"?

That's seriously what it felt like, and I thought "how does anyone walk around like this all day?"

Unless I wear a sweater, I get cold. I've lost my insulating layer of fat.

if you are looking for (trendy) jeans, I know that Buckle carries quite a lot in very long lengths

I know they are expensive, but Lucky Brand jeans have a relaxed fit that's pretty awesome- 181, I think. I have a 29-30" waist, but I squat. Those are the only ones I can find that fit decently in both the waist and the thighs. I had a pair of American Eagle bootcut jeans from before I started squatting that I hadn't worn for a while. I tried them on one day, hoping to maybe stretch them out a bit, but they just ripped when I squatted down to pick something up.
