I was stressing that I was going to need to buy new clothes, I work in an office for a VP. so I can't continue to try to sinch in my dresses and pants. long jackets hide alot, but I have a mirror... I know some of my clothes need to GO! but buying a whole new wardrob isn't in the budget right now.
So my Mom was mentioning that she had a bunch of pants, suits and blazers in her storage closet; some of them almost brand new. I said "come on Mom I will never fit in a size 10 or 12!" (which is what she is) She was like....just TRY some of them on, at least the blazers, they should fit...to my amazement everything, except some of the pants (which were too SHORT), fit me!!!
I can't tell you how surprized I was to find out I can wear a size 12. and some of them are a bit BIG.
I now have a whole new business wardrobe!!! 8 pairs of pants, 3 skirts, 6 blazers and about 10 shirts. ALL OF THEM look awesome. I thought for sure I was still in size 14. I could ALMOST fit in some of her size 10 pants and do fit in one of the skirts.
Gotta LOVE my Mom for seeing in me what I couldn't, that I really have lost alot of weight. Good thing My Mom still wears HIP and Modern clothes at 74!!! LOL
I was so excited I went and pulled EVERYTHING out of my closet and tried them all on, anything that looked too big and dowdy on me, went into the bin that I will be donating to charity! I even have some SHOES that have gotten too big.
whaaaaa??? I lost weight in my FEET??!!! Wow.
So of course once in motion I didn't stop, I have a few bins of clothing I had stored in the basement. my "skinny" clothes. I went thru and tried them on...and they fit! And the ones that were out of style or too big also went into the charity bin. Maybe someone will like that RETRO look. LOL
My closet now has room for my "new stuff" and is so nice and neat. and I have 2 empty "fat clothes" bins. I decided I am NOT ever going to be in a size 18 or 16 again. if I get rid of that stuff, I won't have the excuse that I CAN get fat again.
So liberating to let that stuff go!!!
