Default New formal wear.

Congratulations, you deserve a shopping trip. Just be sure it all still fits after the cruise !

I had to buy a few new things myself for our next cruise. Not because of a huge weight loss, but because of all those darned photographers. I realized that I was wearing the same outfits in too many pics when I got home!

Way to go Lesley! Good luck finding the formals! I am in the same boat, though backwards! I gained 30# can't find any formals that aren't body hugging barbie doll styles.

Lesley,
You a so right on. I wish I had your problem. Mine is the to much weight. Now I have to get new clothes to fit. I'm not buying a lot, just to get by. I have to work at diet, & exercise.
Congratulations on your goals

Default Darn! Gotta Buy New Formal Wear

Wow, Leslie Seventy pounds is a really significant weight loss! Keith lost 45 lbs, and is keeping it off. He went from a 46 waist to his present 38.

I'm another one with the opposite problem and need to follow in your foot steps.

Enjoy your shopping

Judy

Formal wear. Heck I think you deserve a new wardrobe, top to bottom.
Quite an accomplishment.
