The thing is, I still have 70 lbs to reach my final goal - and at that point, I may need to buy yet another new jacket - it all depends on how much my shape changes over the next 10 - 12 months...I guess I could have waited until March to buy my new jacket, but I am guessing I will only lose 10-15 lbs between now and then, and jacket I
bought will see me through this season for sure...
I don't think a textile jacket looks any good till it's faded. LOL! Good luck on the "goal". There is no better reason to buy new gear. I work with a chap that just had his MD read him the "riot act"......He's pretty much had to change out his whole wardrobe. In his case, that was double good. Most of his crap was from the 70's! You go girl!
