Pants on the ground... pants on the ground... looking like a fool with your pants on the ground!

Yep... that is me today. Thankfully my pants haven't fallen on the ground yet. LOL!
The scale is finally moving in the right direction and with the scale moving, I have also noticed inches coming off. It is very apparent in my pants and my shirts/sweaters are getting bigger. I was able to buy a couple new pairs of work pants in size 14. All my other work pants were size 16. Well the size 14's are now getting loose as well. And just last week I bought a new pair of jeans in a size 12! HOLY COW... I bought a size 12 and they actually fit me!
But needless to say... I haven't replaced my whole wardrobe yet. So today I am at work in my size 16 work pants. Before they were loose... I can slide them on and off without unzipping or unbuttoning them. But they would stay up because of my hips. Well now... they are not staying up with my hips and the legs of the pants just look silly. My butt of the pants is just sagging and they are starting to look like clown pants.
Bad problem to have right....?
Well I do need to go and buy some new clothes but I am a little nervous to let go of my size 16. Why you ask? I am trying to figure that out myself.
I think it is because I have been on this roller-coaster for so long. Losing weight, then gaining some back again, then losing weight.... etc.... It is hard to think that I won't gain the weight back again.
Plus... (now I know this is weird) but I tend to go larger size clothes because then it hides my problem areas. I am shrinking but my stomach is no where near flat. My thighs in my opinion are still huge. So if I wear baggier clothes, it covers up the not so good areas. But in return, I start to look frumpy.
I am going to make a goal for myself this week. I am going to clean out my closet taking out ALL of the size 16 pants. I will then do inventory and see what I need and at least pick up a few pairs to get me through until I can hopefully be down in another size.
I am not sure what I am going to do with all the size 16 pants. I may hold onto them for a while in a storage bin or maybe just donate them right away. Not sure yet....
What about you? Do you get nervous if you move in sizes? What do you do?
