Now that I have lost 34 of the 90 pounds I need to shed, I find some of my clothing is starting (and I stress starting) to loosen up on me. Not so much that I can really drop a size yet, but loose enough to think I will be at the point soon where I will have to “downsize” my wardrobe. The dilemma is – I really need new clothes now! My “Big and Fat” collection is rather limited (a couple pairs of pants and a few shirts), that as anyone who knows me can tell you, I rotate through quite frequently. And, as anyone of my size will also tell you, fat clothes are also expensive clothes.
So, do I bite the bullet and buy new clothes now, knowing that in a couple of months they might be too big for me? Or…do I hang on, wearing the same limited wardrobe until I can get into the clothes I have been patiently saving for that magical day when I can fit into them again (leisure suit…ladies here I come)?
On one hand I would be saving money sticking to the current limited selection…but on the other, I have to worry that people will think I am either too lazy to do laundry, or have decided to start rocking the “hobo” look.
An even bigger problem from a money perspective is that I have a couple of events coming up where I will need to wear a suit. I don’t own a suit (except for the aforementioned leisure suit)…and I don’t want to buy a suit that will fit me now, but will be too big for me in a few months.
What to do?
Oh well, like I said, a good problem to have!
All for now
