Yes I do and will do in my case I found so far in the past few years my dress size has remained constant while weight has increased gradually or sometimes decreased all in the range of 5 to 25 pounds so it will be a long way and anxiety to 'reach' somewhere in case I choose to wait to buy new clothes ,I am considering this more of a journey so no anticipation ... yes in case I start drastically losing weight then I might rethink but so far has never been the case.
I will get new to me (thrift store, consignment) clothes once the looseness feels more sloppy than “hey I’m shrinking.”
Once I’m at my goal, I’ll get some jeans I really love. I like what I have but I want a durable pair. I found a company that makes them to your size for about $100. In actual durable denim. I rotate two pair for about three years before I manage to do major damage to them.
I do want to get proper exercise clothes now that my gym is reopened. My shorts are a bit too baggy and come off my hips. Fine for kicking around the house, or with a belt hiking, but not in the gym.
Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.
This choice in this moment defines now. What is your now?
Unfortunately, this isn't my first time around with losing weight, so I just "shop my closet". I did a clean-out of the other closets and drawers in the house that held my clothes that didn't fit me (mostly pants) and tried them all on. There were the ones that surprisingly fit me now (yay!) so those got pulled into rotation. Then there were the pairs of pants that were close, but still a little snug. I put those ones in one drawer in my master bedroom, close at hand. The others that were definitely way too tight, I decided that even if I could fit in them, were they a style that I would still wear? If not, I donated them.

I've gotten a couple new sweaters in my current size, but I really feel like a slob if my pants are too baggy or bra is too big. Then Amazon here I come. I have had a few things that were my current size already in my closet (from before I gained), but those are all gone now and I will be losing at least 17# more. I don't seem to be losing as much upstairs as lower, which is ok by me. There aren't any thrift stores around and the Goodwill only has really crappy stuff or totally new stuff that's as expensive as other stores (and doesn't fit my long torso).
