  1. I don't know if anyone can help me sort things out but i just signed up for this program yesterday and put down that I have a body type C, but I put that down because i know i used to be a type c when I weighed 238 pounds. However, I now weigh 106 pounds and think I might be considered a type A. How do I find out what type I am and if I screwed up how do I fix this? I don't if our body type stays inherently the same or if it changes. Help! I am also unaccustomed to wearing more stylish clothes and feel a bit like a fish out of water. I don't know what my colors are yet as I am waiting for that to come back. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

  1. I think you just send customer service and email and they will change your body type. ~Gwen

  2. Wow on the weight loss! I went from 220 to 114 but could never dip down to 106! How tall are you? It would take so much hard to work to change that much I don't know if this is your problem or not, but once I lost weight I still chose clothes to hide my body...MSP will help you to get over that.

  4. Thanks ladies--I have submitted a request to customer service, but heard nothing back as of yet. I am 5'4" and yes, I am very wary of showing my arms and my thighs because I have so much loose skin. I can't afford to have it removed, so it just sort of hangs there and it is extremely embarrassing!

  5. I signed up as a C, but after a few weeks, realized that I am really closer to an A. Customer service changed it for me and I am very happy with the A choices...All of the past weeks were changed, too, so it was fun to look back and see how different the clothing choices are for the different profile. I find I am much more tempted to buy things now. :)

  6. Thank you Kim! I got switched yesterday and am so happy. I even bought a new dress! woohoo! It looked way better on me than what I would usually buy!

  7. Congratulations, ladies on your weight losses. Those are some awesome numbers!!!! Now just keep it off. In my experience, that is the hard part! Janice

  8. Karen, that's great! Congrats on the weight loss, and have fun building your new wardrobe!

  9. Thank you! I am finding myself paralyzed as to what looks good on me! I hope that as I get into this more, I will know what to do! It is hard on a tight budget too!

  10. Karen, if you're like me, it might take you a little while to catch on, but don't despair! Read the style articles and look at your personal profile suggestions every week, and you'll start to see patterns. You don't have to change everything at once...even little changes, like adding a necklace, will make you start to feel better about your style. Good luck, and be sure to keep us posted!

  11. Thanks Wonderer--I will do just that!

  12. Snaps for loosing so much!!! I have a stubborn 30 lbs that I wish would budge. I am 5'6' and working toward 145 lbs. I am a medium frame, but I have always been "body dense." I would look fine in my clothes weighing 145 lbs, even though many of my friends are made up of air and light! LOL! As for wardrobe...this winter I looked up and discovered I had nothing to wear. I mean nothing. Apparently I forgot to shop for the last 5 years and my wardrobe is/was a mess. I have been in the process of a huge closet overhaul. I know, keep good basics, ditch dated or worn and torn stuff. Well, with my closet that meant that just about everything was yuk. I went shopping at Nordstrom and bought a good core of clothing. The sales lady there was fabulous. She brought me styles and things to try on that I would never have considered before. I was there for almost 3.5 hours, but at the end of it all...I had good items to wear. It was a little pricey, since I was out of just about everything clear down to the skin, but having the sales person help me was great. Nordstrom has a free personal shopper service that you can sign up for if you are interested and have a Nordstrom nearby. Other stores might have a similar service if you ask. Shopping can be overwhelming. When we are not at our goal weight, it can be downright frustrating. I try to get 2 tops for every bottom, that way it looks like you have more in your closet than you really do. Been changing my scarves, jewelry and footwear up and it helps create the illusion that you have more in the closet! Once upon a time, I used to like to shop and be fashionable...now I'm working to find my lost fashion mojo...LOL! Take heart, we are in this together!

  13. "forgot to shop!" I am still laughing!!!!

  14. Thank you Vivian for the idea of the personal shopper. Right now I have Nordstrom taste but a Goodwill budget, so I will have to wait until my ship comes in and hopefully it won't be the Titanic again! I appreciate your idea though and good job with your weight loss!
