I'm looking for the perfect bathing suit. No bikini necessary - maybe a darling "short short" suit. Shorts will be a minor pleasure instead of an embarassment this year, thanks to quality time spent with my bicycle! Size 8 would be great...but I could live with current size 10.

I wonder if I should start on the upper body? Hmm. How to add the upper body workout time to my schedule. Hmmm. Arms still flabb-o. A tank top would still be a no no, I think!

Great question. I have a pair of jeans I want to look really good in, some shorts and tops that were WAY too tight last year. I guess it is more of a "whole wardrobe" thing. I lost 25 lbs 6 years ago and now it has all come back. I am in NO MOOD to buy fat clothes again--I want my skinny wardrobe!

I have 3 goal outfits. The first is a dress for work. It's very fitted and just a little tight. My ultimate work outfit is a suit I bought 2 years ago that is now too tight.
On a more basic level I want to look great in jeans.

Here's a new one.... I have to buy a business suit (!!) or some such thing. Hoping I can find something nice in a size 8! I don't think I've bought anything that could classify as a "business suit" in at least 15 years LOL I don't even OWN a dress!

Nice Jeans Size 8 and a cut new shirt. Maybe a new pair of shoes, purse, bra and underwear too! Oh, what the heck throw in some jewels too! Then maybe get a new haircut and color. Then get the nails done and my eyebrows waxed. Then have my husband take me out on the town.

This question really motivated me. I have two goal outfits. I want to look good in a bathing suit this summer (it doesnt have to be a bikini). I also have a really really cute pair of jeans that look nice right now with a jacket over them but my goal is to be able to wear them on their own with a tee shirt inside them and feel good.

Im getting married in May - not a huge formal affair, so no big ol' gown, but I still want to look fabulous in whatever dress I do decide to wear. I'm not shopping until March, when I should be well within my goal range and still have time to make any alterations I might need :)

That's the problem M2Robinson.... finding a place that will do a good job. I've had alterations done on some of my other clothes in the past and most of the time they end up ruined and unwearable. So I really don't know who I could entrust a leather coat to around here. Maybe a saddle shop, I don't know.

For me, it's my blue jean capris with an embroidered rose on the pocket and that tube top that still has the price tags attached! I'm going to fit comfortably in those babies by this spring for sure!

My favorite jeans from 2007...before they go out of style. I want them to not just button but I want the to be just a little bit loose..so you can't see my front pockets down the leg. And I want to be wearing these in March.

How about jackets? I am SUPER picky about my coats, even more so than my clothes. I have two leather jackets that I LOVE, and one of them is now too big. I don't know what to do about it. It took me almost three years to find the perfect winter leather coat and I don't want to give it up! I'm afraid altering it to fit might ruin it! But I might have to search another three years to find another one I like as much!

outfit.. how about wardrobe?

the pants I had worn 4 years ago from V Secret - not too low but nicely form fitting.

my leather pants I bought but never wore.

shorts that are not down to my knees where I feel self conscious each time I sit down.

and many more!

Great idea for a thread. It's interesting to see what everyone's outfits are!

Of course, a hot bikini on the beach is a incredible visual motivator when you live in northern Wisconsin and it's below zero! But I really what to get back into some jeans I bought about 3 years ago when I was running lots and felt really good about my body. And I do NOT want to have to buy more work clothes in bigger sizes.

I have drawn my line in the sand.

Well, I don't own it yet, but I want to ROCK a sexy bikini on the beach on our next trip to Maui (or possibly New Zealand and Australia)

And kick A$$ in some skinny jeans!

I just want to get back into all of the great clothes that I bought 6 yrs ago and can't fit any more. Particularly work clothes. Ther is the really cute pair of capris I would like to wear again...

In my "heyday" I had a pair of vinyl pencil leg pants I loved. Well, I grew out of those and BOUGHT A LARGER PAIR!! Can't fit in the larger ones any more, but I don't think I would wear them again anyway. Just a different age thing... I think I could go on and on about this one really. It seems that I am a bigger clothes hound than I realize emoticon wow...

Ok so we all have that special item of clothing that we have in our closet or seen in a store that we said "1 day I will wear that again, or be able to buy that".
What is that goal outfit for you?
Jeans - A Dress - Leather Jacket -yes guys I know you must have something in mind as well :)

My outfit is actually a black bikini -lol -not much to it - but i wore it 3 years ago and looked awesome - going away next month and want to wear it again without worry about any bulges and making given those youngens a run for their money -lol

So Tell me - do you have something you can't wait to fit into?
