Afraid to buy new size clothing

Have any of you been too afraid to buy new size clothing just in case you gain weight back? I tried on a pair of slacks this weekend that was a size below what I normally get and they fit. I was too reluctant to spend the money on them just in case. My sister says I need to get more confident and go for it. I'm just so unsure of myself right now.

(((Wendy))) -  I know how you feel.  It's tough when you've struggled with your weight to trust yourself to keep it off.  I think you should go for it anyway though.  When you start wearing clothes that fit you well and people start commenting on how great you look - I'll bet it will help motivate you to keep the weight off!

Congrats on fitting into a smaller size!

I know what you mean. I'm really too afraid to go shopping at all. Anytime I do, I have to go up a size. I honestly think that the sizes are changing but maybe I'm kidding myself and that is why I'm in the shape I am in.

I look forward to the day when I am trying to decide if I can pull off a smaller size.

Hi - I know how that feels - having to go up a size. I could practically open a store with all the sizes of jeans I have. I'm looking forward to getting out of my "collection" and getting to buy a new smaller size! :) - Karen
