One of the ways I have been blessed is in the area of clothing. As you can imagine, losing 69.5 lbs means my clothes don't fit. I have been able to pull a few things together and I've had a few birthday presents get me through. I haven't purchased a bunch of clothes because I'm continuing to lose weight and will be out of them before I know it. So I've resigned myself to having very few clothing choices. Believe me, it's a small price to pay for the way I'm feeling.
Just a few days ago I received a phone call from one of my neighbors. She was cleaning out her closet and wanted to know if I liked hand-me-downs. She said she knows how expensive it is to replace your wardrobe after you've lost weight. Of course I told her I'd love anything she'd pass to me.
You wouldn't believe what she brought over. WOW!! It seems like an entire wardrobe to me. Sweatshirts, t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, sweaters, a vest, swim suits, bras, a robe, pants, shorts, a swim suit cover, dresses. . . it was amazing! These clothes are all sizes 14-16. These are the sizes I should be fitting into in the next 30 lbs and they are nice clothes.
I am so excited to fit into these clothes. Right now they look so small to me. (I'm smiling as I write this.) I felt like a child during school clothes shopping season. Giddy!
