Being Excited and Bummed at the same time

Monday, March 18, 2013

The EXCITED comes from having lost enough weight that your clothes don't fit anymore and you need smaller sizes!! emoticon emoticon

The BUMMED comes from having lost enough weight that your clothes don't fit anymore and you need smaller sizes!! emoticon

What I mean is that clothes I really liked/loved...pretty blouses and sweaters especially...can no longer be enjoyed because they are falling off!! It may sound funny but I miss some of my clothes...lol
Guess there are worse problems do be dealing with:)

    I've been spending a small fortune on clothes, tailors, etc. and building mountains in the giveaway pile. Those are happy problems to have. Remember the line from Apollo 13? "Proud, happy and thrilled!!"

    I was that way too when things first started to be too big. I held on to some of my favorites thinking I would alter them and keep wearing them...but it turned out I found new favorites. And it was kind of good that I had to get new clothes because I found that I updated my wardrobe to more fashionable/now clothing. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    I totally understand! I'm lucky that I can pass some of the cute tops on to my sister (not bottoms, cuz she's 4 " taller than me), so I still get to see them sometimes! But it is nice to donate things that are still pretty that you know will help someone else feel beautiful.

    Now that I'm pretty much maintaining (I might drop one more size, but not especially soon) I'm finally getting more than just a few pieces in my current size. And that is fun! emoticon on the need for that new wardrobe! emoticon

    Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon

    That's one thing that is definitely bitter sweet about losing weight! I have some clothes that I absolutely love and don't want to not be able to wear anymore, BUT it is a great reason to find even cuter clothes!

    Good for you and congratulations on the weight loss. You're just going to have to suffer through shopping for more pretty things. emoticon

    What a wonderful problem to have! Donate as others say and then know that someone will love them as much as you did and be very excited at their find. It will make their day that much brighter!

    Another good place to donate is Good Will. I donated 3 entire wardrob es to them in the process of weight loss.

    I know what you mean though! Difficult to part with some of the clothes, but someone else will love them!

    HUGS and continued good luck

    I recommend sending all the clothes you really can't wear now to Salvation Army ASAP. Make room in your closet for new pretty things to love. While you are at SA, you might browse for things someone else donated that are in good shape to get you to your next weightloss. I hardly ever buy second-hand, but if you are determined to shrink even more, you might find some things to wear around the house or to do your fitness in while you continue to shrink. I have been emotionally attached to some of my clothes too, but I donated a lot in a frenzy of decluttering last year, and to be honest, I don't miss those things. I like having a little extra space in my closet and it's not hard to find an empty hanger now.

    There certainly are! Enjoy your smaller size that you have worked so hard to achieve.
