Clothes

Recommended Posts

Has anyone brought new clothes before they could fit in to them since their surgery.  

As most of my "smaller" clothes are in storage and impossible to find I decided that I will just pick up things from Vinnies, etc but that I wouldn't buy them until they actually fit.  I went to Vinnies with my Mum the other day and I couldn't help myself, I brought a pair of JAG jeans in a size 16 in great condition for $1.  Bargain, I couldn't help myself.  I find that I am starting to actually imagining wearing lovely clothes at long last.

I've thought of buying some stuff in my goal size (6) but I'm too embarrassed to. I have a pair of ripped faded jeans from Supre in size XS and I refuse to bin them because I desperately want to wear them again one day. I have a variety of sizes here in bags but as I start shrinking I plan on going crazy buying stuff as long as it's cheap.

I have a stunning wiggle dress from Wheels and Dollbaby - probably around a size 12.  I've been looking at it longingly for the past 4 years!  13kg to go and that baby better be ready to wear!!

Op Shops are your best friend when you are in the weight losing period!  Also, doing clothes swaps with friends :) .

Unfortunately I've put on weight since I've been really sick for the last 7 months, and have given away clothes in the size I now need *duh*!

Denzel,  Yes, I think Op shops will be my best friend in the losing period and as my other smaller sizes are in storage sadly, I will be heading to them for the most part to find new bottoms particularly.  Sucks that you've been sick enough to actually put weight back on and what a pain that you don't have some of your old stuff to utilize in the meantime.  I am sure you will be back on track soon, all the best to you.

Fat2Fit, I had to google what a "wiggle" dress was.  Gorgeous.  You will have to post a photo of yourself in that dress when you reach goal.  You have done so well in such a short period of time.  I have only just started and have lost 4.6kg in 15days and overall I am down over 15kg, so I am happy with that so far.  I am a 53yrs old and 166cm tall and my goal is to fit comfortably into a size 10-12.  I have a very old (over 32yrs old) pair of Lee jeans in a size 9 that I just adored, I don't anticipate that I will get back in to them and I'm not bothered about that, but I do have a beautiful black and white CUE suit, size 12,  that I absolutely loved and am hopeful that I will fit back in to again.

Bogan, half you luck having such a variety of sizes ready to go.  I will mainly stick with the Op Shops in the weight loss phase I think, unless of course I score a bargain on something that I really really want.  I will do my best to be patient.  Good luck with getting back in to those jeans Bogan.
