    Hi,

    Last year I thought I wanted to be skinny, so I put myself on a diet for about 9 months. It went well and I got to under a 34 waist, so I made sure I bought a new wardrobe.

    Pretty soon after that I decided that I didn't have the right bone strucuture to be skinny (large head, big bones etc.) and I also wanted to eat more cake so I got back to my previous weight. Since then I have been trying to put on muscle and I will soon be at the point where I have to buy a new (bigger) wardrobe again.

    Does anyone else do this? Or maybe I should wait to buy clothes - I usually find I give up at the gym shortly after buying the new clothes..

    you should want to be in shape to be healthy, not to buy new clothes. i think that's the problem you should be working on.

    Ok first of all

    Jamfadoya said I also wanted to eat more cake


    that is awesome.

    As for the OP, I was a size 34 waist and went down to a 28, at which point I bought an entire size S wardrobe that included items that didn't even fit me. I'd be like oh cute, want, doesn't fit me but eh I'll get down to that size, no prob icon_wink.gif

    I didn't get down to that size. In fact I just started going back up in the course of 3 years. What's worse I had discarded my old size L-XL wardrobe. So I had a bunch of clothes that I barely wore that didn't fit me and no substantial wardrobe in my size.

    I lost the weight again but changed my proportions, so now I fit into the majority of my smaller clothes and yet also fit into bigger clothes too. I'm not sure what the moral of the story is icon_confused.gif

    Don't get rid of your old clothes because theres a chance you might fit them again??

    That's not altogether a bad one, but I feel I'm a genuine clothes hoarder and I've carried around clothes that I have not worn in years and years because someday I might wear them, and I HATE having that mentality.

    Moral of your story: Do what you want to do with your body. Buy clothes to adapt. And sometimes, buying different sizes of clothes in advance can be motivational, but expensive if you don't meet the goal.
