    I know I'm not the first to say it, but ... most of the clothes in my closet are getting too loose-fitting to look good on me anymore.

    (it actually is kind of a legitimate complaint because I can't afford new clothes right now--hoping to get a gift card to some clothing store for my birthday)

    On the plus-side, my grandmother-in-law got me a top for my birthday that is 1X and it fits perfectly--I used to be a 2X easily. So at least I think I know what my new size is =P

    I'm actually starting to make and customize my own clothes. Being an almost perfect hourglass, there are SOME conventional cuts of clothes that fit me, and I prefer men's jeans to women's, but it's rare that I find a nice shirt or dress that fits me well, is long enough (in the case of the dress) and in a pretty colour/pattern, so I'll make my own.

    I really miss stress-induced eating binges, formerly a nearly daily ritual -- and I so miss the satiated feeling that a huge S.A.D. meal brings after being hypoglycemic and starving just a few hours following the previous S.A.D. meal!

    It totally sucks that I have to throw away all of those meds I use to take for the G. I. Problems I used to have -- what a waste of money!

    Same, but from the male side of things trying to keep my diet almost 100% paleo before a clothes shopping splurge this summer (going back to the UK to see family, harder to get what I want in India). I get the feeling that if I go through my wardrobe it would suddenly become very....very.... empty.... (I only seem to wear four different t-shirts these last couple of months)

    I was wondering how many people here get rid of clothing that doesn't fit any longer. I personally love to do that once I'm buying smaller sizes. Unfortunately for my wallet I have done that in the past and regained the weight... hence need to buy more "fat" clothes again. Therefore... I mostly shop at second hand stores. Not sure what I'm going to do with the bigger clothes this FINAL time of getting healthy and into anything not a 16/18 hopefully!

    I'm losing good sitting-around-time due to walking/jogging/sprinting 2, 3, or 4 miles a day.

    My arms and legs look like they've been attacked by mean kittens because of the vines I have the energy to yank off the shrubbery even in 90F weather.

    I horrify everyone with the weird stuff I consume such as fermented cod liver oil, konnyaku, and frozen green bananas.

    My hubby is worried I'll hurt myself with all this walking/jogging/sprinting, yard work, and eating of weird foods.

    LOL on the weird foods. My fiancee is slowly going from horrified to fascinated to willing to join in the fun as far as weird foods go. She actually suggested that we buy some chicken livers last time we went grocery shopping (and she's someone who used to NEVER eat liver).

    I am going to see what happens when I suggest chicken feet.

    My frustration is that I'm now having nightmares about SAD food - I dreamt that someone had put a block of butter and a block of margarine side by side so that they ended up fusing together and you couldn't tell which half was butter and which was margarine. D:
