My New Old Clothes

Saturday, August 03, 2013

A couple of days ago I went upstairs and pulled out the big suitcase in which I packed up my "skinny" clothes a couple years ago. I don't have a big closet, only two old-fashioned wardrobes, which I have to share with my husband, and one dresser. I didn't have room to keep those things plus my "fat" clothes in my room, besides which, they were just depressing me. But after losing 17 pounds, and several inches, I thought it would be fun to see if any of that stuff fit yet. What fun! Now granted, this is all old stuff, not great and some of it pretty worn out, but still! It was very cool to try it all on and be able to zip all the zippers, etc. Some of it I can wear now, and some will fit really well after another five pounds. I also tried on my "really fat pants" that I have saved from when I was at my highest weight ever. I keep them just to remind myself! That was long before I found SP, but I actually weighed 56 pounds more than I do now. I can hardly believe that I lugged that much more weight around on a daily basis! It sounds absolutely exhausting! Those pants are humongous on me now, just like all those "before and after" photos on the commercials. I feel very thankful.
