Four months ago, I would open my wardrobe and moan, “I have nothing to wear!” Everything would be a little snug (or in some cases, way too small).
Actually, the clothes weren’t too small. I was just too big.
Also, when you are larger, clothes tend to be pretty shapeless. I just did not enjoy getting ready in the morning.
Now, today, I’m standing in my bedroom getting ready and saying the very same thing. “I have nothing to wear!”
But this time for a very different reason.
All those clothes that were too small, now just fall off me. I can take my jeans off without undoing the button, straps slip off my shoulder showing my bra straps (I hate that), hem lines on tops swish around my hips and waist all baggy-like.
I am in desperate need of a new wardrobe.
I need new bras and underwear.
I need new PJ’s that don’t fall down when I roll-over in bed.
I need everything!
Despite desperately wanting to go on a full-blown shopping trip, I’m actually rather hesitant. Because I know that in just a few weeks more, all the new clothes that I want to buy, will be too big.
And I will have to do it all again.
And my husband won’t be happy. With the spending that is, not the shrinking wife
Anyways, since I’ve kinda reached ‘Situation Critical’ in the clothing department, I did make a quick trip to the shops to buy a few capsule items that will hopefully help see me through the next few weeks.
BEFORE: tops = size 16
NOW: tops = size 12
BEFORE: bottoms = size 18
NOW: bottoms = size 12/14
Cropped trousers, top and sunglasses: Wallis
(Shhh, I told Hubs I needed smaller sunglasses, too )
Slim-fitting jeans and 2 x tops: TU at Sainsburys
So, nothing fancy. Nothing expensive. But I do need some clothes that fit, so here are just some cheap and casual basics to see me through (mostly school runs) over the next few weeks.
I am not done losing weight though. I want to lose another 20lbs and then I will splurge!
There is nothing like the feeling of putting on an old pair of jeans only to discover they are TOO big.
Losing weight is expensive!
