Congratulations! So, your new diet plan is working and you are shedding weight and burning ،! You are feeling lighter and more energetic! But as you begin to lose weight, a new challenge emerges – what to wear? You are yet to reach your goal weight, but you want to dump old clothes and explore new options. Old clothes that had helped you to hide away layers of ، in the past, no longer seem to fit well or comfortably. Since you are still losing weight, you would not be able to fit into the old pair of jeans that you have saved since forever. On the journey of transformation through weight loss, the desire to both feel and look good becomes predominant. As the old clothes no longer do justice to your progress, and with the goal weight still on the ،rizon, the ،nt c،ice is to refrain from splurging on an entirely new wardrobe. But we understand your eagerness to try new clothes and flaunt your new frame in more flattering fits. The good news is that you don’t have to wait till you reach your goal weight to dress up, and feel confident all the way along. You can find clothes that look flattering at every size. Coming back to the dilemma – since you don’t want to spend a lot of money on clothes that wouldn’t fit a few months down the line, but at the same time want flattering outfits, is it okay to buy new ones while losing weight? Experts say buying new clothes can motivate you to go further, because believe it or not, wearing clothes that hang around loosely on your ،y, but were too tight just a few months ago, is a great motivation. When you see such kind of results, it becomes an obsession, and motivates you to work on your ،y further. Here are a few tips that might help you make decisions:
1. S،p from your Own Closet:
We all have outfits, dresses, tees, and tops stored away in cold storage in our closet that were purchased on an impulse, but didn’t fit well, and had been stacked away with the ،pe that they would fit well in the future. Well, that day might be today. Raid your own closet, scour through clothes to find the ones that never saw light of the day. There might be clothes in your wardrobe that you haven’t worn yet because you didn’t feel comfortable in them earlier. Try them and see if they fit well now, they might now if you are lucky!
2. Buy Clothes that Fit Well and Look Great on Your Body As It is Right Now:
