if you lose weight, staying in the baggy, gray t-shirts and sweatpants you own will only make you think it is okay to pack pounds on again because you have room to. If you lose the weight, you should want to express it better with your appearance and new style!

    I still wear my baggy old clothes around the house (I'm retired) or to the Y (as long as the pants have a draw-string so I don't embarrass myself by letting them fall to my ankles.)

But being a packrat, I saved lots of my clothes that no longer fit when I gained weight. I've been digging those out of the backs of closets and drawers ---and it's been like having a whole new wardrobe. I bought one pair of cheap (smaller) jeans at K-mart for $7.99. I am hoping they will be too big for me in a month or so; I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them.

If you want to get rid of your too-large clothes, donate them to Goodwill. If you have clothes that would be "professional" looking, there is an organization called "Dress for Success" which provides nice clothing for the unemployed to wear to job interviews. A bonus is that you can take a tax deduction for donating these items.
