Changing Sizes

Thursday, November 14, 2013

This road to a better me has brought on expected changes, but unforeseen expenses. I didn't think about having to buy new clothes...more than once! Now on my 3rd smaller size, hoping to get to at least an 8, I'm thinking one to two more sizes worth of clothes I need to buy. Aren't any decent resale clothing places in the middle of nowhere, but Walmart has worked well for me. My biggest mindset change is going in to look at mediums instead of large or extra large. I actually bought two pair of summer pjs for $3 each pair on sale and they are mediums (and fit now!) It is hard to wrap your mind around something different when you have done it one way for so long. But it is a good thing, right?! Hope you are doing well on your weight loss, healthy eating, healthy living, life changing, life celebrating journey!

    Good for you! I am kind of in the same boat. I don't want to spend a lot of money on in between clothes. I have picked up a couple of pairs of jeans at Costco for not much money - in a size 10 now and I have size 8 that I can button, but they don't look great yet. I bought them for motivation and figure I'll be in them by Christmas. Not sure what my ultimate size will be. I'm holding off on buying new work clothes since I only wear those when I travel to client sites and work from home the rest of the time. My suits still fit for now, but getting lose. Those are a little pricier to replace. Keep up the great work!

    As Martha Stewart would say yes, "It's a good thing" I love the cartoon. I used to read Cathy every day.

    hey, I'll soon be onto my second set of smaller clothes and I'm delighted to be able to fit into something smaller. I reckon that with SP being free of charge and me being in week 13, I've saved the price of my new outfits by not being with WW, for example.

I'll probably receive Christmas vouchers from my family to spend in clothes shops and this year I'll be using them right away, instead of having them lie around until summer.

    I've had this problem I've gone from a 20 to a 10 or 12. Still have to fight the urge to go into plus size stores or grab a much larger size than what would fit me now. Old habits are hard to break.

    To this day when I go shopping my friend is more likely to pick up pants that will fit me than I am: even though I know I'm smaller, I'll still veer towards the size 12s, because I was a 12 for 80% of my life!

    I was just talking about this today. I donated all of my bigger sizes last year and made a promise to myself I would not buy any more clothes ezpecially pants until I hit my goal, HOWEVER I have 3 pairs of pants left that are worn out and don't fit right anymore. I have about 15 more pounds til goal so I figure I will get myself 3 pairs of pants now and see what happens.

    That is definitely a good thing. I am proud of the work you have done and are doing. Sorry for the outlaw of cash but it is such a Great feeling to have things falling off and know that you need a SMALLER size. Keep it up!
