These jeans, which fit comfortably a few months ago, are now so loose that they are literally falling down. I had to go to Target and buy a belt (which I needed to do anyway; see last week's entry). I probably have a few more like that, too loose for comfort with my reduced wastline. I still need a 38 waist, but I am convinced that if I can just drop five more pounds and focus on my midsection, I can get down to a 36, a size I haven't worn in over a decade. I'm not going to throw out the loose pants, just in case the weight that I lost comes back again over the winter.
I now am at the point that I have to divide my closet up into "fat clothes" and "skinny clothes"
I was also going through my dresser and sorting out T-shirts I can give away. For the longest time, I wore XL (extra-large) shirts, and still do for the most part. However, there were some shirts that were absolutely swimming on me. Those I will get rid of. I'm now to the point that I can wear L (large) shirts, and while they are a wee bit snug across the belly, actually fit quite nicely otherwise.
Normally, I'd be tickled pink about this, but the timing really isn't the best. Dang it, I don't have the money or desire to buy a new wardrobe. With belts and tucking, I can probably still wear my big clothes for a while longer, and just replace them with smaller sizes as they wear out or fall out of fashion.
