I've been buying new clothes lately because I have been going on job interviews and dating a new guy where we go out and do things a lot. And I just need new clothes that fit me at the size I am right now. (Granted I did keep my "skinny" clothes so thankfully I do have some as the scale moves down.)
I like buying clothes now because I can actually fit into them easily and not hate the way I look, which is a new thing for me! However, it is also a little draining financially to buy new clothes and then lose weight and have them be too big and have to buy all new ones.
I have 2 pair of black pants and refuse to buy any more "business" type pants because hopefully I will continue to lose weight and outgrow them. Same with jeans. Shirts are a little different because it takes longer for a top to be completely too big.
But it leads me to think... what about those people that always stay one size? Or even vary just a size or two? Do they just have one big wardrobe of clothes that they can continue to wear until they just get sick of something or it "goes out of style"? (Like my sister who has and probably always will be a size 4... lucky bitch)
But aren't those people more normal than me, for example, who has bought and donated so many clothes in the last couple years due to my weight gain and loss? I know I'm not alone in this, but I definitely think those people who don't go up and down 10+ sizes in a few years are the normal ones, and the ones I want to strive to be like.
My hope for the future is to find a happy weight and just stay there! I would love to be able to buy clothes when I feel like it or just want something new or something catches my eye rather than having to buy something out of necessity for that specific occasion and that specific weight I am at.
