Thankful for the classics....

So, I know I've said before that ever since I started taking met.formin and thyroid medication I've been losing weight. Like a significant amount of weight. As of today I'm down 42 pounds. That is a lot.

Back in August after the miscarriage I needed something to keep my hands busy so I went through my closet and got rid of a few things that I didn't like anymore. There were several things that no longer fit, so they got packed away in a tub to be re-evaluated when I'm pregnant.

Yesterday morning (-10 lbs later) I was attempting to find something to wear this weekend for a family picture that is being taken. I tried on a few things that were too big and thus began another stroll through the closet removing everything that was too large... another huge plastic tub. While it is great that I'm losing weight, my closet looks SO SAD! I don't really want to go out and buy a bunch of new things considering I'm paying a lot of money in an attempt to have my body change significantly in the next few months.  Plus, it seems like every time I buy something new if I don't wear it within the first few weeks of ownership it needs to be returned because it doesn't fit. Efff! Its a never ending cycle. Right now my options include a few new things and everything else is circa 2006 or older. Thank God I've never been one to buy tons of super trendy clothing! I typically stick to classic staples and then spice things up with jewelry or other accessories- so luckily, even the older pieces aren't too out of date.

I know, not a horrible problem to have but SO annoying!

I know what you mean about not wanting to buy a lot of new clothes when you're hoping to be in maternity clothes soon. I feel the same way! I wish I could say I'd lost 42 pounds though, hehe.

It is a great problem to have, but I agree with you it is annoying. I'm down about 40 lbs, but I'm so resistant to going shopping because what if I get pregnant? Again, like you, I think it's a nice problem to have, but I can take my jeans off without unbuttoning them and my belts are looking pretty ragged. And I did just pull out a pair of pants that haven't seen the light of day since 2006, which made me laugh when I read that in your post. Good luck with finding stuff to wear!

I know how annoying this can be! With my recent weight loss its depressing to watch my closet dwindle away, especially since we are on a very strict budget with all the IVF Cost. It’s a good thing that whole flowey look is in! :)

We are totally besties. (Did I just say that? I hate that word) Anyhow...I NEVER buy anything trendy AT ALL even though I try and dress trendy the 1 time a month when I have to dress up. Even now I try and stuff flare legged jeans into boots because aparently I'm supposed to have skinny jeans. wtf? But more importantly..CONGRATS on such a significant weight loss! That is so hard to do and you deserve to feel great in your clothes. I think you should let yourself buy a cute new outfit for your pic!!
