Trying on clothes

Sunday, October 27, 2013

An obsessive behaviour I have when I have lost weight is to try on the clothes thats been hanging in my wardrobe ... and this occured today.I haven´t really admitted it to myself but for the last...two years or so I have not been wearing anything but t-shirts or tanktops with a shirt over and black sweatpants, soft and not hard on my jeans has been on the shelves - I have two sizes and have even heistated about the bigger ones.

And it is a joy to wear clothes that I have´n been wearing for two years, they are loose on the hips and even tha smaller sizes of jeans fits well, not entirely comfortable but I guess that if I had them on they would be because the stretch after wearing them for a while...

It was a surprise because even if the scale shows me that I am 14 kilos down I don´t really believe it, think I am somehow fooling myself, I am really distorted in my head.

But nevermind, suddenly I have a lot more clothes to choose between in the morning, that is really nice.

I have also left the "extremely obese" and entered the group of "very obese" I don´t know if you have the varieties in "Obese" in english, in sweden 30 to 35 is "obese" 35-40 is "very obese" and over 40 is "extremely obese".

You nee to have a BMI over 40 to be considered for a gastric bypass and I have now disqualified myself emoticon emoticon emoticon

Now I am hunting to reach "obese"... that will take another 15 kilos down, so it will ot be this year but hopefully in spring 2014.

But whoooah there, I am as usually jumping ahead and fantasising about the day I will be slim... for today I am very happy to have extended my wardrobe!

    emoticon That's always a great feeling when you can find "new" clothes. I just found some I hadn't worn in over a year and it feels great.

    What a great feeling to get into a favorite old pair of jeans!! emoticon

    I know what you mean by " I am really distorted in my head."
    Even now, I don't see myself as the size I am. It worked both ways doesn't matter if it's when I was a size 24 or now, as a size 6; in my head I was a size 14. I think it's what allows us to let our weight creep up if we are not "paying attention" in other ways. The clue is when you get that "unexpected" glimpse of yourself in a mirror or window and are surprised at what you see. Photos too; do they really add 10 pounds?? Funny that everyone else looks normal!

    So glad you are continuing in the direction of your happy/healthy place and leaving the unhealthy labels behind you! emoticon
