Seasonal Clothes - Adios!!!

Saturday, April 07, 2012

I dont have just a whole lot of clothes. Couple of reasons. We had a house fire a few years ago, so all the clothes that I grew out of that many people who lose weight have a stash of transitional clothes in various sizes to fall back on, I do not have. And since I hate to shop, I just don't have all that many to spare. But I have my favs and some could be considered seasonal. After I did laundry the other day, I was hanging/folding things like turtle necks and long sleeves, and then it hit me - I will never ever wear these things again! And after this summer season, the capris, the shorts, the swimsuit I broke down and bought last year - this will be the last summer I will wear those things as well!!!

I have to say, I am looking forward to going clothes shopping, but I really want to wait as long as I can. And until I reach goal, Goodwill and garage sales will be just fine. But one of my first purchases for my new me, I think will be a swimming suit. I just can't wait to show off all my hard work. I am so not there yet, but when I get there, I can't wait to show it off emoticon

    How very exciting to look on those clothes as something you won't ever need again!

    I am and have been a garage sale & goodwill clothing shopper. However, last year I bought a pair of jean & bathing suit. I hope you share your pictures with us when you buy your new clothes. Very happy for your new small size!!!!

    You know what? I also did the "goodwill" and such for myself also,,,as I lost,,,or at Walmart,,,or clothes that really CHEAPLY on sale,,,,but my ONLY REAL piece of GOOD CLOTHING was A NEW BATHING SUIT last yr !! I just tried it on today,,,and well I haven't really lost,,,,i've gone UP and DOWN due to the loss of my Mum (step) one of my best friends,,,,, a break up,,,,, 3 foot surgeries,,,,, and being confined to bed,,,,, so yeah without the walking,,,and all of this,,,,I've been SO HAPPY to use the SUD's To HELP ME NOT GAIN !! WOHOOOOOO !! In past years,,,,i;d of put ON at LEAST 30 lbs during stuff like this,,,instead I've put on a tiny bit, than lost,,than gained a tiny bit. its WONDAHFUL being a DAWGGIE !!!!! A LOT of my gain is ALSO that I am on THREE Meds,,that have the Side Affect of weight gain. Without those meds,,,NO DOUBT I'd LOSE or if I could walk,,,,I'd lose !!! But well I guess I should be DELIGHTED to just NOT GAIN !!!! Thats SO IMPORTANT ALSO !!

    I don't have much clothes either. I can't wait to get the ball rolling on my weight loss so that I too can say that this is the last season I'll be wearing these clothes!

    You are definitely in the right mindset, and you will achieve your goal. I know when you had that realization that it must have felt amazing.

    Please post pictures when the new you gets here! (And along the way.)
