Need new clothes!

With all the weight I have been losing, NOTHING FITS! Grrrr!!! I feel bad on one hand because clothes like my fairly new off-white pantsuit fall off of me. None of the clothes I have bought in the last two years fits. My black pants don't fit, khaki's don't fit. I know it's a good problem to have, but I just don't have the money to replace this stuff all at one time and so keep wearing the same stuff over and over again. (Not that I really go anywhere lately.) Usually I have to use a safety pin or add a belt, which looks ridiculous with some things because my seat of my pants are "bunchy" then. If I could go out and work, then I could buy more stuff at once, but with the health problems, that isn't going to happen anytime soon. So will have to be patient and get things as I can.

I have bought a couple of new pair of jeans, and a couple of underwear and bras over the past month and a half. I shouldn't complain . . . Jon needs new pants and clothes because his clothes are OLD! I will have to just get things as I can, little by little and eventually build my wardrobe back up again. I have a lot of clothes already, and most are nice, but I will never be able to wear them again, and they will probably end up going to Goodwill. But I am NOT getting fat again just to fit into them.

I mentioned before that I did get a Danskin outfit today to wear to physical therapy. It's a clingy outfit and it's been over a decade since I could wear anything remotely clingy. It feels so good to be thin again. I have been losing a couple pounds a week, still. I do hope that when I reach my goal weight that I will stop and level out. I don't want to look anorexic, and Lupus does make some people lose too much weight.

I wish I was having that problem, I need new clothes but not for that reason.

poodles, being on Prednisone for two months now, I should be gaining weight, but it's probably the Lupus making me lose weight more than anything. I do hope it levels out when I reach my goal weight...which won't be too much longer. I was a skeleton when I was a kid and teenager and don't want to go back to that.
