I'm kind of jumping the gun here, since I've just barely begun my journey to a new healthier me, but I feel like this stupid, silly fear could get in the way.
When I start to think about being many sizes smaller and getting to buy new clothes, the idea of this excites me. However, then I begin to think about all the clothes I have now that I will have to get rid of. For the most part, this isn't an issue.. but there's certain things like a few nice, expensive coats and dresses I have that I fear having to get rid of! Especially since I just barely got one of these coats for Christmas. (It's a Barbour jacket that I got on sale for $150, but they usually run $360... it's something I don't want to have to let go of
Is there a way to combat this train of thought? Or has anyone else experienced similar thoughts to mine? I know my family would be super proud of me for losing weight, moreso than still being able to fit into a jacket, but in the back of my mind I just get this nagging feeling that I'll be "letting my father down" for no longer being able to fit into the fancy, expensive jacket he got me. Argh!
