    My hubby and I stopped at a garage sale on the way to the mall. Rarely do I find much for myself in the way of clothing but since I have lost 24 lbs, this garage sale had a ton of clothing my size. I mean these clothes were very, very nice and many still had the new tags still on them. Hubby bought me about $400-$500 worth of clothes/shoes (orig prices still on many things) for $46. Church and grocery store are the only places I go (besides garage saling), so I guess I will have to dress up and sit around the house! :) :)

    What a good reward for losing weight. I think your DH is a real keeper.

    So excited for your "treasure/find". Those unexpected finds are the best treasures. Way to go on the weight loss. I've been trying so hard to get some off. I'm proud of you.....Keep it up.

    If those might wear someday clothing are still in good condition they might make nice quilts.

    The low-carb diet works very well for me.

    The great thing about it was bringing them all home and finding them to fit. One or two even a bit big (to be altered), which is very, very encouraging.
