What to do you do when your skinny pants don't even fit?

Should I buy new clothes when I still plan on losing a little bit more weight?

  • those button pin extenders work well. They add or subtract a pant size from the waist.

  • don't dry them in the dryer.... if you have a setting that doesn't use heat use that, then I do the wiggle lay on the bed to button them dance lol

  • it is hard to lose wieght when its hard to fit all the exercise in a day. i would see if you lose the weight first...then go buy new clothes if you need to and they still dont fit. you could do a garage sale too so you get rid of the old and make money for the new

  • I think the question should be.....What do you do when your fat pants won't fit? LOL I don't even have skinny pants anymore.

  • Wear a belt. I've waited until the pants are either falling off or falling apart, and just buy one new pair at a time, and buy the smallest size I can manage to squeeze into (without looking horrible or being painful).

  • Depends on how much 'a little more' is, and how much weight is a size difference for you. If the amount of weight you have left to lose won't change your size then don't worry about it. If it will go to a local discount store...Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshall's and scour the clearance racks. It's a great way to get transition clothes cheap.
