NVS - Not stretching clothes

mosneakers Posts: 343 Member
So, I bought some polos online from Old Navy a few months ago (I'm a sucker for clearance items) and they were WAY too small when I got them.
I remembered about them this monring when I was deciding what to wear to work. I tired on the blue one and it was form fitting - wasn't tight, rolls weren't everywhere, etc. Normally, when I would put on something that fit like that, I'd stretch it out - NOT today - I saw that the shirt looked good enough on me to not stretch out the stomach or the arms. Such an awesome feeling!

    LOVE IT! I also buy smaller clothes as motivation to lose! I generally forget about them until they are too big.

    That's a GREAT NSV!

    I'm a stretching pro. I can stretch a medium t-shirt into a large in a snap. I'm hoping to put that skill behind me soon! Haha!

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the good work.

    What a great post! Sometimes its alot more about how our clothes fit than the weight we've lost!
