Oh okay, so it's not just my glasses that are dust magnets? :)  Not to mention my toddler wants to yank them off my face when I'm holding him.

Mine are usually okay to wipe once a day (unless I get something splattered on them, of course) but I hear you on that last part.  DD was okay for the first few months, probably because I think she assumed they were just part of my face.  Then one day she snagged them and pulled them off...and suddenly Mommy has a cool toy that she absolutely must have.

Did you get any particular coating on the lenses? I have the most trouble with dust, lint and fingerprints if I wear a pair with Transitions or anti-reflective coating.

I didn't pay for anything extra, so I don't think they have any special coating on them.  I just got Target's "best lenses" that come standard.  I have a microfiber cloth that came with my camera that I also use on my lenses.

Some ofyourproblem isjustgetting used to you glasses. I've been wearing them most of my life and I find that when ever I get a new prescription I spend the first few days cleaning them all the time, noticing everything.  After a while I go back to cleaning once a day.  Well except now as I have a 7 month old who loves to grab. ;)

My glasses get almost opaque before I clean them.  I'm terrible about it.

In other things that drive me nuts; my clothes are all too big for me.  This is a good thing, really. I've lost 17 pounds and almost 6 jeans sizes.  I started out at a 20.  16's are a little too big, but I can't quite get into 14's yet.  Even though I'm thrilled with the weight loss, the fact that I can't find a darned thing to wear tonight (first real "date", with an actual man who's picking me up and paying the tab and everything) is driving me insane.  I don't want to go out and buy new stuff because I don't plan on stopping the weight loss until I lose another 83 pounds.

Ahh okay, I suspected that might be part of it because of the people I've known who have worn glasses for years, they don't take off their glasses and constantly clean them.

Congratulations on both the weight loss and a date!  Woohoo! 

I'm also wondering about that - I'm doing very well right now on my diet and have lost enough so that my clothes feel looser, but not enough to buy a whole new wardrobe.  What am I supposed to do when I do lose a substantial amount but still not at my goal weight?  Start pinning things?  Alterations?  Suspenders?   :D  It's actually quite a happy problem for me.

I would recommend buying a few things in your current size-it doesn't need to be a full wardrobe, but check out sales, or resale shops, or places like TJ Maxx or Marshall's, because having clothes that FIT is an awesome thing, and really helps keep the weight loss going! Or, if you have a close friend in a similar size where you are now, see if she'd be willing to loan you a few things. I've got a couple of friends who are my go to people as we all fluctuate up and down-our clothes get passed around to each other all the time, as needed. Congrats on the weight loss!

Thanks for the congrats and the tips!  I reread what I wrote and I missed a very important phrase.  This is my first real date in several years.  The single-mom-of-medically-needy-kids gig doesn't leave much time for dating. I'm probably freaking out needlessly, but I've been ripping my closet apart trying to find anything that doesn't look like a tent.

I'm down 40 of the 50 I needed to lose...I've found Goodwill to be a godsend!  All my in-between clothes have come from there with little expense and no regret when I take them back because they're too big!

I'm blind at home most of the time.  I just take my glasses off when I get home to keep toddler fingers off them!

I've been tempted!  But scattered baby and cat toys + no glasses could = disaster.  ;)

Every so often, buy yourself something that fits you well at that time.  That way you always have something that fits your body and makes you feel good.
