Pulling out old winter coats (read: skinny clothes!)

It's getting a little cold these days! So naturally, I pulled out the jacket I wore last winter and found that it was way baggier than before. So I figured, why not go into my duffel bag of lost skinny clothes and see if my older coats fit me now.

And... they do! Even a size medium jacket that I haven't worn in so long fit great!

So now I have a whole new wardrobe of smaller coats and jackets and sweaters. I used to hate sweaters. In the winter when I was overweight, I never wore cute sweaters and jeans for a nice little outfit. I would just wear jeans and a sweatshirt, usually with a short sleeve shirt underneath which I didn't care how it looked because I would never take off the sweatshirt.

I have even gone through some of the clothes in my closet and given a whole new round of clothes that are too big to Goodwill. On a couple of different pieces, I thought twice about getting rid of them just in case I gain weight again.. but then reminded myself that it's not going to happen and I don't need fat clothes waiting for me in the closet.

I'm really seeing a difference these days, especially when trying on old clothes. It's not too shabby. I just gotta keep it up!

Woohoo! I gave away more than half my wardrobe, and now it's really time to stock up on new winter clothes... my coats are way too baggy! Well, since I am broke (as usual), I'll have to improvise...

That's awesome. I just made another round at the Goodwill with some of my big clothes. It feels good to get rid of them but I had a moment like you where I was questioning whether I would need clothes in case I gained again. Nope, not going to happen.

Wow, that is so exciting! I know I would find that extremely motivating. I have about 4 coats sitting in my closet that I can't wear right now.

So happy for you. Congrats!

That's AWESOME! There are very few things that feel as good as trying on clothes and having them be bigger than the last time you wore them. How fun!!

What a great NSV moment!
I use to be the same way, sweatshirts and jeans because I could never find any cute sweaters that looked good on me, who are you kidding sweaters and 270 lbs don't mix! I look forward to buying some cute sweaters for this winter and getting rid of all my big sweatshirts!
