Losing weight has so many benefits. I have more energy, feel great, gaining strength, and I'm looking good! And one of the benefits is my clothes don't fit, but this can also be a bad thing.
Just bought a pair of short, pants and jeans in a size 18. They were kind of snug when I got them a month ago. Now, I can almost slide the pants over my hips. I know it's a good problem ~ right?
I can't keep up!! Pants are too big I get small ones, then I need new underwear and oh the bra's, oh the bra's, my favorite article of clothing. They are too big too!! You know I hate buying bra's, this is a problem!!
I wish I could afford getting everything that fits at the same time, but I just can't. So I have to work in stages ~ so something is always too big!!
I know, I know ~ what a problem!!
I am learning, not to get too excited about an outfit, because soon they will be too big!
Sounds like I'm complaining ~ I'm not ~ just trying to figure out how to keep the pertinent body parts covered and not look like I'm wearing a circus tent!
One thing I noticed ~ my size 24 clothes weighed a lot. The fabric was so massive, when you hold them up, it looks like you can cover a window with them. They were huge, so much fabric and they weighed a ton. My new sized 18 Capri's are tiny. They fold up into nothing and hardly weigh a thing.
My husband used to give me grief, because when I would pack a bag for an over night trip, I would have to bring a full sized duffel bag. Jammed packed with just enough clothes for the trip. He would say, "we're only going for the night ~ looks like you've packed for a week!" There were times when I would be a little offended and could not understand why I had to bring to much. Well I am realizing, it was not that I was bringing too much, it's just what I had to bring was so big and bulky, it just filled the duffel to the brim.
Now I'm anxious to go on a road trip. Want to see how the duffel looks, see if the smaller clothes make a difference!
Do you struggle with the clothes thing? What have you done to keep yourself clothed?
