No matter what size you are, big clothes make you look BIGGER! So you think you are fat and you think buying big clothes is going to hide the fat. Surprise! Big clothes make you look BIGGER! It doesn't matter whether you are a size 2, 22 or 32 buy clothes that fit! Well, at least if you want to look slimmer, smaller, less fat.
Along this journey it is even more important to buy clothes in the right size, that fit you nicely. As you lose weight and you fit into a smaller size, treat yourself to a new top or two and a few bottoms. Don't make the mistake that I made, waiting until you've dropped 60lbs to go shopping and then "weighting" until goal to go shopping. Trust me when I say you want to look good and feel good and nothing will do more for you and your self-esteem on this journey than a smaller size! It will make you take notice of your efforts and the world will notice too!
As you keep dropping down to smaller sizes keep treating yourself to new items along the way. Also, be sure to purge the bigger sizes from your closet, especially when they are 2-3 sizes too big. I want to stress this point again...DO NOT KEEP TOO BIG CLOTHING IN YOUR CLOSET! Get rid of it!
Sound expensive? Shop at your local Goodwill or Salvation Army, Plato's Closet or your favorite used clothing spot. Don't forget to check out the many great sales at your local retailer.
The compliments alone are worth the effort. I'm still getting compliments, ooohs and aaaahs and I haven't lost an additional pound. However, I have been buying more and more clothes in the right size, that fit nicely. I feel pretty, sexy and people notice!
Happy Dropping! Happy Shopping!
