New, old clothes
Sunday, January 18, 2015
As I slowly put on weight over the years, I put my too-snug clothes on higher shelves in my closet. "I'll fit them again soon," I always told myself. And I'd have to buy new clothes, which I did mostly online in the sale or clearance pages, because I didn't want to go to a store to try on clothes and look at myself in the mirror, and also "I'm not going to be this size for long, so I don't want to spend much on these new clothes." So maybe half the clothes I bought fit, and the other half were too snug, and they went into the higher shelves of my closet as well.
Now my clothes are too loose, and I'm checking out some of the clothes I stored away. I wore a new pair of jeans yesterday that I bought online but could not quite squeeze myself into when they came. They fit almost perfectly now - very comfortable, and in fact almost a little bit loose. New clothes without going shopping - now that's a treat!
