Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..
Have you looked in the clothing exchange section of the discussion board?..
I was thinking about this too! I've got a lot of dressy events coming up (baby shower, bridal shower, 2 weddings, Easter, Passover w/DH's family) between now and July, and am trying to figure out what to buy so I can get the most mileage out of the clothing as I get smaller and smaller..
I gained my weight (over 100 lbs.) very rapidly (less than 1 year) due to a pituitary/endocrine disorder (mostly during and right after my pregnancy), so I don't have clothes at different sizes in my closet (just maternity clothes, LOL!).
I think I will check ebay and maybe some consignment stores, plus sales. I really do need to try things on though, I'm pretty small through the chest..
This is a very GOOD and EXCITING problem to have!!!!.
You could try craigslist. Sometimes people are selling large lawn trash bags full of clothes for like $35 a bag. Some have really nice dresses (sundresses, formals, etc.).
Hope this helps!..
Goodwill puts their best stuff online at shopgoodwill dot com. Name brands go for very little. (just don't bid against me in the china and silver lol)...
Just bought three summer outfits, $8 a piece from my local Salvation Army store. They look new, and awesome. Although, I didn't see alot of professional clothing..
I've done pretty well in that department at stores, buying new end-of-season outfits for 5-10 bucks. In fact I bought an after-5 dress at The Loft for 9 bucks. I bought long sleeve "work" blouses from NY&Company also for $8 each. Can't beat those deals!.
A lot of end-of-season merchandise from winter is probably gone, at least here in the South, but it's still good to go into some of these stores to see what's there. Even though, more people are shopping these days, the economy is still horrible and a lot of these stores, JCPenney, Sears, Belk, the major department stores are deep-discounting stuff to get rid of it!.
Plus, it's fun to shop when you're losing weight... :-).
Happy Shopping and Happy "OP" Monday!.
I was at my local Salvation Army this weekend and they had a lot of suits and suiting pieces. Their selection of dresses and more casual stuff was a bit more meh (at least to me). I'm just about at the point where I can't make do with my current wardrobe and am finding that I don't really like the older stuff I've held on to so I'll be heading back out there soon!..
Oh - another good thing to think about it shopping through a site like ebates where you get cash back. And if you're shopping in person OR online, use a credit card where you get points or cash back (of course, don't spend more than you would have with cash). If it's cash back, start a savings account just for new clothes...
I did not know that the the Goodwill had anything like that online. I will have to check it out. I just bought a pair of Lee Rider Relax from Walmart one size smaller than where I am now. They are advertised by Stacey London from What Not To Wear...
