Shop In Your Closet


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have a lot of clothes in my closet that I grew out of over the last couple years. Now that I'm losing weight, I tried on all my clothes to determine how tight they are and lined them up in my closet accordingly. Now, as I lose the pounds, I go shopping in my closet -I save both time and money!

Once I hit my goal weight, I'll treat myself to some new clothes as my big reward.

    This is very important to do. I actually had a jacket that was almost new because I had gained so much weight so fast. I missed getting to wear it on my way back down because I forgot I had it and when I found it again I had lost so much weight that now it was way too big.

    I unpacked smaller size scrub tops that I had forgotten I'd packed away. Love them!

    It is so much fun when that happens! It is like a brand new wardrobe!

    I think that this is much more emotionally rewarding than buying new clothes because it neutralizes the 'trauma" you experienced when you realized that you couldn't fit into them anymore, LOL. Plus you get to save money!

    This is so much fun. It seems that every week I can get into a new pair of pants or that a new shirt will fit properly again. I was so excited when I realized I could button my winter coat without sucking in my stomach.
