I've been training for the upcoming Go! St. Louis half marathon (because I'm crazy). It's going generally okay...I think I'll be able to at least run/walk it without dying, which is a vast improvement from two months ago.
Because of all of this athletic activity (and because my activity level during June of last year was zero), I've slimmed down quite a bit. Now, don't get all excited - I haven't lost a single pound (don't get me started on how frustrating this is). My body fat percentage, on the other hand, has decreased significantly (I'm down 10% from the beginning of January), and I've lost quite a few inches everywhere.
Which is great. My boyfriend even commented last night (um, maybe TMI), that my thighs looks less "wiggly and stuff" (he's so sweet).
EXCEPT none of my lovely clothes fit. Most dresses gape at my armpits, skirts fall down my hips, jeans are always falling off. It's really annoying. (I know, poor, poor Ashley). The skirt I'm wearing in the picture above? I tried it on last week (this outfit is from October 2011), and it literally fell off. I bought new jeans in one size smaller at Gap over the weekend and after wearing them once, they are saggy and fall off my hips. It's incredibly frustrating, and makes getting dressed in the morning a real pain. Basically shoes and tops are the only thing that still fit me, and that's incredibly frustrating. I feel like I'm waisting a bunch of money because I have bags of clothes now that just don't fit.
The practical side of me is saying I should hold on to them because they'll fit again eventually - but the vain side of me wants to get rid of them because I don't want to get that big again.
Ugh. What do you do once clothes are too small?
