Clothing Sizes and "Shopping" in My Closet

For  a while now, maybe a few weeks, I noticed that my clothes were getting looser and bigger (and obviously I've been losing weight and working out) so today I decided to sort through all of my clothes (excluding most pants and skirts because by the time I was done with the tops and a couple of dresses my back killed).

Anyway, I tried on all of my "X-Large" and I was shocked to find that almost all were now too big for me including all of the newish shirts that I bought at the end of May/start of June and was wearing in July. The more I tried on, from deep inside the closet, the more I found just hung on me and my size Large clothes? The size I haven't worn in TEN years? They fit!! Not only do they fit but they look really good. I even re-ordered some of my favorites in the newish shirts in a smaller size (they came today) and they fit wonderfully.

All in all I ended up with 37... THIRTY-SEVEN pieces of clothing that are now too big for me so some of my friends are about to hit the jackpot because I'm spreading the wealth and giving them to my friends who have said they could use them.

I just feel so weird. 10 years of wearing XL or XXL or 2X and XLargeW and all of that. 10 years of looking longingly at the clothes that didn't fit anymore. 10 years of hoping I could someday wear them again. And now I can (most of the brands anyway) and I'm not even half-way to my goal yet (but sooooo close to half-way that I can taste it!) so what will I end up with in the end? Medium? Small? I can't wait to find out!!

So thanks to all of this I will definitely be retaking my measurements this week and posting them on my weigh-in day. It kind of sucks to have to give away stuff I bought less than 2 months ago but being able to fit into the smaller sizes makes me feel a little bit better about it, plus I like good deals so it's not like it cost me tons of money.

So, I guess that's my official NSV for this week! Wooohoo!!
