Outfit Help & Progress Pics



My husband pointed out that it is sometimes hard to see the difference in my progress pics because I don't wear the exact same clothing in the B&A. So today I put on the same outfit I had on the very first time I snapped a pic of my flabby body for this blog. Does it make it easier to see the difference?

Thanks for the suggestion, dear.

The following are three inspiration pics that I am considering for my 199 reward outfit. I have already decided on the jeans (below), but not sure where to go with the top. I think I can make top #1 myself so I guess am trying to decide between a structured jacket (#2) or a softer sweater for spring (#3). If you have any input, I would love to hear it...
#1

#2

#3


Here are the Sweetheart Jeans from Old Navy. I will get a size 14 and work my way into them. I am wearing a 14 dress right now but 16 pant.



What's that you say? I should just get them all? Genius.

I like #3. The jacket looks to confining to me. I love #1.

#2 will definitely showcase your hard work whereas the sweater doesn't have as much shaping and has the ruffle down the front to add visual size - I'd do #2

#2! Go for the jacket and cinch that disappearing waist!

Actually I think i will have to scrap #3 because i don't think I am supposed to wear something that long since I am only 5'4". I really like the colors of it though and the ruffles...

If I go with the jacket I will try to find one with capped sleeves...

Holy Hell Yah - get them all!

Love the jeans! You deserve them...

I love the jacket! Its so cute & stylish!

I picked those same jeans to be my goal jeans. :)I found a pair on clearance in a size 8, which is sort of my long term goal & scooped them up. Crazy thing, considering I'm wearing a 12 or 14 right now, they fit! The lady told me they run big when I was paying, but seriously I think they must be mislabeled or something...

You can definitely see the difference, especially in your hand with your ring (weird thing to notice maybe).

I say go for the jacket. Looks awesome!

I say WAY TO GO! And I also think you ought to go for the structured jacket. I think they are more slimming anways. Stacey and Clinton from What Not To Wear are always raving about structured jackets. And the one you picked out is adorable! Where did you find it online? And the first top with the flowers....so cute! Where did you find that too? Cute taste!

and the jeans..love em! Might have to get me some!

#1 is fantastic. Can I have it in every color. I also disagree that you can't wear something long. I am only 5'4 and I love long tops and dresses.

#1 and #2 are my favorites. Your rockin hot body will look great in them!!

I love choosing new clothes. Choose the one you like best. If you don't feel good you won't wear it as well as you can. Length is not the issue if it is balanced. Keep on having fun while you choose your well earned reward.

I love both the jacket and the sweater. Personally, the flowery shirt is ADORABLE, but I'd never be able to pull it off- my head is too big, I think! You look wonderful, and I love your outfit choices!

I see a big difference in the pics! Congrats

I love pic #2!!

what a difference, you look great. It's true you seem to notice the difference more if you wear the same clothes...hmmm might have to steal that idea for my weigh ins..lol.
the jeans look great and the jacket is gorgeous. Good luck in trying to choose between the three tops, me...well i'd buy all of them lol

I'd say number two! All are pretty, but the dress is the kind of style you see in a lot of plus size dresses, show off your new body a bit more, go for the jacket!

Rosa said...

I admire you so much because I lack the gumption to buy clothes when I am transitioning. I have to learn to work with my present body and make myself look good.

You look FANTASTIC and congrats on the weight loss.
