Better than new clothes…

Prom dress... 12 years later!

Prom dress… 12 years later!

What is better than new clothes? Old clothes that fit again! I have a drawer of clothing that used to fit me back in university and even back in high school… I knew that it no longer fit, but I just couldn’t bear to get rid of it as I hoped to be able to fit into it again at some point… I am pretty sure that there are many people out there with a closet or drawer like the one I have…

Well, as you know, I have been working on losing weight, and though I have not lost much since the New Year (currently 15 lbs down since January), I have been going through my old clothes, and they fit! I even found my prom dress today. Guess what? It fits! Most of the other clothes I have are t-shrits that I really liked, like the Boston Symphony Orchestra t-shirt that a friend bought me for my 18th birthday when our school band went on a trip to Boston… Nothing fancy.

I do have the semi-formal dress that I wore to the music department party, two years in a row, I might add… The boyfriend of a good friend of mine pointed that out really loudly at the second semi-formal… “See, Katherine doesn’t mind wearing the same dress two years in a row!” I don’t think that he convinced her that it was ok in that way.

So, that has been a recent thrill for me. Not buying new clothes, although I have purchased some great new show clothes, but fitting into the old clothes that I wore when I was 18. I don’t know what I weighed then, so I have no clue if I am back to the same weight, but I must be close to the same size for sure!
