I'll try to make this brief. I've been on diets on and off for over 50 years. I recently lost approx. 20-25 lbs., which really makes a difference in my slacks and belts - the rest is okay. I cannot rationalize wanting to lose any more weight at this point. A few of my pairs of slacks fit okay but others would start sliding down immediately, or at least when I start really walking. First I tried buckling the belts tighter, then having new notches made, then starting to replace the more ill-fitting slacks, including shorts, and added a shorter belt. I've also discarded items that have some wear but not necessarily at the point where I would have done it were the item to fit better. Maybe I've gotten more and more sensitive to fit but even some of my new slacks don't seem to fit that well and I still have to fiddle around with the belts, etc. (which may be uncomfortable). Naturally, I want the clothing to look and fit as well as when I was last heavier. Looks and comfort are both important. In the past sometimes I've had clothing "taken in" but I decided not to get into that this time around. Those of you in this situation - what do you do with the older clothes? Keep them around with the newer stuff? Hide them away so you'll have them at the (perhaps unfortunate) time when they might once again fit? Do you give them away or toss them so they're out of your life? As I try to purchase better quality-type clothing (though not the most expensive) I like the idea of the items lasting in decent condition as long as possible, so I might feel sort of guilty in ridding myself of a garment "before its time." Anyway, what do you do?
