For the past few months, I have been buying new clothes for the winter. I bought some jeans on clearance at Old Navy in the summer ($6 a pair!). They were a little snug, but I was confident that they would fit perfect by November. I have also been buying shirts whenever I see something cheap and cute.

I haven't really talked about it much, but after I got my braces in April, I made the decision to lose some weight. I was just feeling overwhelming unattractive with my fat rolls and my metal mouth. For the past 6 months, I have been a super star dieter. I have been eating less, exercising more, and eater smaller desserts. Yes, I still eat dessert every night. Without dessert, I would fall off the diet band wagon within a week.

After all of this hard work, I have almost reached my goal weight. I am nearly the same size I was in high school. GASP! Every time I step on the scale, I get a little giddy. And it motivates me even more to follow my diet. It has been a wonderful cycle, and frankly, it is not something I am used to. Usually my diets work in the opposite direction - I get discouraged because I am not losing weight, therefore I eat more and gain weight.

With the cooler weather approaching, I decided to try on all of my new clothes I have been buying. I was super excited about the prospect of not wearing a belt with my jeans. But things did not go exactly as I had planned. My clothes are too big. My pretty new clothes that I have been scrimping and saving to buy for months, don't even fucking fit me! The shirts are definitely do able, but my pants are just HUGE. I have mentioned before that I have no ass. This is a major problem when it comes to buying pants. If my jeans are even slightly big, the ass of my pants is all saggy and horrible looking. I need tight fitting jeans to make my ass look good.

I should have saved all my receipts, but I didn't. I keep having crazy, irrational thoughts about maybe gaining 5-10 pounds back. I know I am being annoying, "Woe is me, I lost too much weight." But for me, half the joy of losing weight is getting to buy new cute clothes that fit my new cute body. So, I am disappointed.

Yay! Congratulations! Way to go! What a great problem to have, your new clothes are too big :-)

I've been losing weight too, for my vacation that starts on Thursday and I can now get into my pre-baby clothes......just in time to start trying for another baby. I'm excited to try for a 2nd baby but...I just got back into my favorite clothes!!!

Congrats on the weight loss!
Do you guys not have nice resale shops in your area? And if all else fails, try ebay! You can sell your stuff and get new stuff. :)

I'll guess you'll have to buy the Booty Pop panties now! lol

Congratulations on your weight loss! Clothes that are too big is certainly a better problem than ones that are too small, but I can understand your disappointment in not being able to wear your new clothes.

Impressive! Not too sorry for you for your problem, though. :) You can't try to return them for store credit?

I know this is an old post Christy but if you bought them at Old Navy and they still have the tags they will take them back without a receipt!
