Lets face it, clothing is not cheap… Unless you shop at Goodwill. And even their prices have jumped.
I have found that some people who had every intention of losing 50 to 100 pounds suddenly gave up on their goal… They quit.
Their clothes and not being able to afford a new wardrobe or they just got upset over always having to change.
This saddens me. I long to see people healthy and obesity is a huge problem around the world.
How is it a person can affordably get clothing as they are losing weight?
Well, I did some research and here are 7 tips on managing your wardrobe during and after weight loss.
Weight Loss And Clothing Tip #1: Do Not Buy Over Sized
We tend to want to buy some items over sized because they are comfortable. But during a weight loss regimen, it is best to stick with purchasing clothing that fits.
Those over sized items will be much too over when you hit your goal.
Weight Loss And Clothing Tip #2: Buy For Now
On the other side of the over size angle, some want to start buying clothing for what they want to be.
I suggest you wait until you are there.
The reason I say this is, you may develop some curves you didn’t plan on.
I suggest just buying clothing that fits you here and now and keep it to a minimum, because you will soon lose more weight. And that leads into my next tip…
Weight Loss And Clothing Tip #3: Consider Buying One size Smaller
If you are wearing a 22W jeans now, consider buying a pair of 20W. This can help be a goal for you… “I’m going to get into those jeans in 1 month.”
Weight Loss And Clothing Tip #4: Consignment Shops Or Ebay
Now, here is a way you can get money back to buy clothing that fits. Round up the clothes that are now too big and put them either in a consignment shop in your local area or you can list them on eBay. Starting a store on eBay is not difficult.
Now, you are not going to get all the money you paid for the items, but at least you will collect to be able to buy stuff that fits.
You may want to help out that consignment shop and buy some of that stuff there.
Weight Loss And Clothing Tip #5: Bras And Shoes
It is extremely important that these 2 items fit properly. And believe it or not, as you lose weight, your shoe size can possibly change too. So make sure the shoe fits.
And the bra… Do you know that a vast number of women do not wear the proper bra size? Make sure you have bras that will match your weight loss. You want those “ta-ta’s” firm and snug. Not too tight, but loose is bad too.
Weight Loss And Clothing Tip #6: Shop Within Your Closet
If your anything like me, you may have clothing from (hmmm, I don’t dare say or you will guess my age).
It can be fun to go through the clothing stash. You may be surprised how you can simply do a small hem and have a top that fits perfectly.
And then go find that picture when you were wearing the same top in High School. wouldn’t that be fun to share on Facebook?
Weight Loss And Clothing Tip #7: Wraps
Any item that wraps can be perfect during the weight loss battle. Especially for those who find themselves losing a lot one week, a little the next week and even possibly gaining because of that darn birthday party.
Wraps are forgiving. You have room to tighten or loosen where you tie it.
Don’t let your closet be the reason you give up on losing weight.
These are just a few ideas and I am here for you.
