We've had some warm weather lately and after a couple weeks of cool, autumn days it was kind of unexpected. We've already pulled out our room air conditioners from the windows and stored them away. I've been wearing jeans and slacks and long-sleeve shirts. I haven't packed away any clothes yet, but all my light-weight summer clothes are way too big. So this morning as I was getting dressed I remembered a pair of crop pants that I hadn't tried in awhile. They are a junior size 16, but even though I am wearing a size 16, the last time I tried them they were too tight. I tried them again and they fit! So I tried a bunch of other jeans and pants that I've been storing in my drawers and THEY ALL FIT!!! Which means that I no longer have any smaller sizes tucked away. Which is kind of bizarre.
For years I've had several different sizes in my closet. I've had entire wardrobes in sizes 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24. I've had clothes on hangers and in drawers that I couldn't wear. I've moved with these clothes more than once. I've occasionally removed sizes - I used to have sizes 10 - 14 too, but at some point I gave up hope that I'd ever wear them again. As I've lost weight, I've gotten rid of the too-big clothes. Some have gone to the Sisterhood and some to Goodwill. So now I have size 16 and a few 18's and that's it. This means that I could walk into my closet to put on ANYTHING I find there. Everything fits!
Of course that means that when I'm ready for size 14's, I'm going to have to do some shopping. Hopefully everyone will get me clothes for Christmas because I'm going to need them!
