Shopping After Weight Loss & Shopping Review

Some of you may know that since April, I have lost over 65#.  So, none of my old clothes fit me very well, if at all.  And that includes coats for the cold weather.  Most winters in the past, I didn't do much outside...except let the Pups out the door to go potty and wait for them to come back in the house.  But, this year is very different.  I have to take them out every time they go out...and I have to shovel, sweep or snowblow the snow in our courtyard, on the porch, the sidewalks and the driveway and believe me, the fall type jacket I have, doesn't keep me very warm!!  So, again, I went shopping...
on-line at Eddie Bauerafter looking at coats elsewhere and happened upon another Bargain!!  A down coat that is both pretty and functional and covers up everything I need covered up to stay warm.  This beautiful coat was on Sale, too.  It fits just great!  I love it!  These are my thoughts and feelings, I've not been paid in any way to give a positive review of my purchase.

  1. Hi Jan, Congrats on your huge accomplishment in weight loss. The jacket is beautiful and I know it will keep you warm. Love the colors they offer. Trying to catch up after my time away last weekend. Hope you are doing well. Stay warm and be careful out shoveling snow!! xo
