If you do the rugby shirt idea, may I suggest avoiding the ones with giant stripes. Perhaps choose ones with darker colors. Perhaps a dark cardigan sweater as well. Darker colors in general will add a slimming effect. Avoid wale cord pants. If you wear cords, choose the thinner cords. Your new look really should include a new lifestyle. It would be prudent to seriously consider an exersize schedule, starting a.s.a.p. Clothes alone will not do the job. You may want to consider swimming. It can be a very gentle yet effective form of excersize and will yield good results. Eat less carbohydrates. Eat less in general. No second servings at dinner. No desserts until next spring. Do not eat at least 2 hours before bedtime. Avoid sugar altogether. Watching ones eating habits can assist in losing some weight effortlessly. If you stick with less food and more excersize, you'll be amazed at how fast you'll get into shape, and how many more clothing options will open to you. Start now, and come next spring you'll have literally transformed your appearance for the better. As a matter of fact, I'm going to do it too. 30lbs worth, starting this weekend. Please know that these words, and all other help here is meant in a positive way, and we would love to see 'before & after' photos as you go. Best of luck. You can do it!
