I did another try on of clothes in my wardrobe, it was very gratifying everything fits and some items are now too big to wear without alteration, 3 skirts are winter ones so I will delay until nearer winter cos I don't want to have to alter them twice emoticon

One item is a top I bought for my wedding anniversary last year, hubby and I went out for a meal and I didn't have a nice top that fitted me, in the wardrobe a dress I bought for a wedding 2 years ago, a blouse I wore on honeymoon, I then dug out the suitcase of smaller clothes and tried those on, in the suitcase a velvet top I wore for the millenium new year,a mock sheepskin coat hubby bought me etc etc etc.
Now I have a rubbish memory both long and short term but I could remember buying or the first time I wore every item of clothing in there, how peculiar is that?...

ps. 2 shirts, 2 pairs of trousers, 1 skirt, 5 t'shirts now fit me again

    I know what you mean. I just packed my size 24 jeans away since I am now in 18's & 20's. I have some skinny clothes I never got rid of and hope to be able to fit into them that will bring back some memories as well!

    Awesome! I too have clothing that brings back memories.
One blouse I got rid of even before I lost weight. I went to the store and nothing fit. I bought a hideous multi-colored blouse because it would go over my stomach and button.
Every time I looked at it I felt ugly, so I got rid of it before I started on my weight-loss journey. That kind of association would not help me or motivate me, it would just make me feel bad about my appearance.

    Oh no I'm not keeping them just in case, cos there will be no need for me to have them, I've been hot tumbling some which shrank some of them a little, wearing belts, taking tucks and have a couple I will alter properly cos I like them...

    Great progress!

Your clothing choices are expanding as you're shrinking!

    Well done, it is so pleasing to be able to get into clothes that have been put aside. But what are you doing with the clothes that are too big? Keeping them - "just in case"? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That's great, Spiffy. I'm actually going to hit the charity shops for some more trousers in a smaller size! I'm still wearing the big ones around the house and garden, but only have about one pair of smart ones. I gave those to my friend years ago when I grew out of them. She's smaller than me, and never bothered to turn them up. She gave them back the other week and I wear them to go out!
I'm really out of the habit of buying clothes. Must make an effort.
