So the good news? I’m within 5 pounds of my goal weight. And that feels awesome. Looking at myself, I sort of feel like I have more than five pounds to go, but that’s really more of a reminder that I need to do some toning rather than simply weight. The part that isn’t so awesome? Some of my favorite clothes aren’t fitting so well anymore.
I end up having a choice to make. Do I wear my old clothes that are too big and look a little frumpy – which ironically also makes me look heavier? Or do I buy new clothes, knowing that they might also not fit shortly and I’ll have to buy new clothes again, something my budget really can’t afford.
Overall, I’m thrilled that I’m a Shaklee Blogger. I’m impressed by what this program has done that me working out and watching what I eat on my own wasn’t able to do. I’ve figured out some things about my body that I didn’t know previously, like the fact that I don’t eat enough protein for my body. Shaklee, for me, has been that last puzzle piece that fell into place to really make the differences that I was working so hard to create.
Which means I now have a clothes dilemma.
Do I look like this?
Or this where even my freshly washed jeans don’t stay up and create an oh-so-attractive droopy drawers look?
Or do I give in and buy more clothes to augment the ones in my closet that I’d been holding on to for “someday” that has finally arrived?
What do you do when you lose weight? And what do you do about your old clothes that are now too big? Do you follow the same philosophy that I do?
