I need to rant, even though I know this is what people consider a “good” problem. To me, it’s not. I NEED NEW CLOTHES. Like badly. I haven’t seriously taken the time to buy new clothes since my weight loss. I have been trying to make it work with my leggings, belting baggy pants, and wearing extra-large cardigans. I am almost at 90 lbs weight loss, but I haven’t gotten a thing.
I already know what you all are saying. “Girl, if you don’t shut up and buy yourself some new clothes,” And I know it sounds crazy, but I am not ready to let go of these clothes. There are so many reasons why.
Reason 1: I am not ready to say goodbye to clothes. These clothes hold memories. I loved how I looked in some of these outfits. Letting go of these clothes feels like letting go of the old me. I am not sure if I want to say goodbye yet. I always loved my size when I was a Size 18-20. I tried to see if I can tailor these old clothes, but I almost passed out seeing how much it cost to tailor clothes.
Reason 2: Part of me feels like I can always go back to that size. Things happen. What if I gain all the weight back? What if this is only temporary and I can’t maintain my weight loss. I lowkey keep my clothes as a crutch. It is something I can always fall back on if I do gain my weight back. However, I can’t live in fear of a what if. I just gotta stick to this lifestyle change no matter how hard it gets.
Reason 3: I am cheap!!!!!!! Do you know how much it will cost to buy a new wardrobe? I don’t have that type of money to just spend on all new clothes. Well, I do, I just want to spend it on clothes. As I said, I’m cheap! Plus, I am no longer trying to buy clothes just for the sake of buying clothes. I want to get a cohesive wardrobe.
One day, I’ll buy new clothes, but that day is not today. Maybe tomorrow? Nah. But when I buy new clothes, trust me, you’ll know.
