A unique and different problem for me.

Monday, March 04, 2013

So I have lost 56lbs so far and am now facing the ANNOYING issue of baggy clothing. I purchased a few maternity pants a size smaller and they seem to work nicely for my pants issue. As for tops, I don't really want to spend hours sifting through clothing racks at goodwill - "Ain't nobody got time for that!". So do I just go ahead and spend a some money on some nice work tops?? I have to look semi-presentable! lol. These baggy, faded cardis are just not doing me justice at the moment. And my 22/24 tank tops are getting baggier by the day.

I know. It's not a horrible problem to have. I could be going the other way like the old days.

    Congratulations on outshrinking your wardrobe! My personal solution to that problem is to shop the clearance racks. There are often some great deals to be found. Best of luck to you!

    That's great! I like to reward myself with a new top or pair of pants once in a while if I have done well...I just wait until I see something on sale that I really like

  emoticon That's not really a problem, as far as I see it! Get yourself a couple of items - it motivates you more than you can imagine! emoticon

    I totally understand. I just invested in some summer dresses that will work for the next 30 lbs or so to avoid the saggy pants issue. Try

Congrats on the weight loss!

    I'm looking forward to having that problem. I have a couple pairs of jeans that are getting loose, but I still have some clothes that I used to wear, and I'm looking forward to wearing them. My plan is to invest in a couple new things when I know I'm down sizes, but I'm hoping that I enjoy having this problem when I get there! Good for you!

    So I always like to splurge and buy a new work outfit when I go down a size. It just makes me feel better.

Have you tried freecycle or even a similar sized friend? You are going to keep losing so you just need that in-between clothing until you get even smaller!

Have fun! emoticon emoticon
