Between not having good selections in the women’s department of most stores, and not buying new clothes while losing weight, a lot of us settle for a kind of wardrobe limbo. You either buy STUFF you really aren’t crazy about or you keep wearing your old STUFF and hiding the new you behind oversized clothing. But with 1 to 2 pounds a week and frequent plateaus, I don’t need to fear that I’m going to shrink that quickly.
So I found this clip on msnbc.com interesting…THE GREAT AMERICAN APPAREL DIET
the concept of making ONLY mindful purchases going forward sounds great.
Invest in items that go with the image I want to project.
So I guess a new goal for me is to stop buying STUFF and determine my STYLE.
I'm fortunate in being so tall and proportioned that I'm an easy fit. The problem for me is that the 'style' shows make me unsure of myself. So now I'm trying to focus on a classic youthful style that doesn't have to much decoration and a little more fitted. It's not easy...I think in terms of what I think is cute and then find out the style people think it's 'wrong'. And I know you're probably saying: 'buy what YOU like', but that's just it. Since I feel out of touch with my size issue, I've been grateful just finding something that fit...forget style. Now if I spend, I want something with style for the long term
