Do You Have "Fat Pants"?

Do You Have "Fat Pants"?

I have a few pairs of jeans that I keep around that are labeled my "fat pants." I don't really know why I feel the need to hold on to them, but a big part of it is to see my progress so far. I know I am not alone here, so what about you guys...

When I lost a bunch of weight, I donated all my fat pants except for one pair--the smallest I had at the time. They fit normally except when I had my period; I couldn't wear them then. I only saved them to remind myself of how much progress I've made since then. Sometimes when I'm feeling stuck or like I've hit a plateau, I put them on. And when I realize that I can pull them down without having to unzip and unbutton them, it motivates me to get out there and work out harder and bust through the plateau. Works every time!

Nope, I throw out all my now-too-big clothes so I will be motivated to never allow myself to get back there but need to fit into my smaller clothes instead.

I have all my fat pants. At my biggest I was a size 16. Now Im a 10 and plan on staying this way if not getting smaller. I was told by one of my very good friends that I should save all my fat clothes for maternity clothes instead of buying maternity clothes use what I have until well.....I cant.Keeping the fat pants also reminds me of who and what I was when I wore them and that I never want to go there again!

No...my weight doesnt fluctuate too much...so i basically have pants that fit and then a i have 1 or 2 pairs that are a bit of a tighter fit. So i guess that means i have "skinny jeans" and not fat pants. lol... I dont want to encourage myself to get fatter by keeping clothes around to accomodate it. Not a good idea. If i feel a bit of heaviness coming on...i do something about it and hit the gym a bit harder. :D

I have them. But, I just bought a pair of True Religion Jeans and now I am soooooo afraid one day they won't fit and I paid so much for them. So now this pair of jeans is stressing me out so much!!!!

My pants fit about the same but I only own a few pair. I am more of a skirt girl.

All my pants are fat pants. I have been the same weight since high school. :(I look forward to real, honest-to-god fat pants.

I lost about 40 pounds and threw out all of my old pants. I now wish that I'd kept a pair just to remind myself on low-self-esteem days that I AM much healthier now

This is a funny poll lol ... actually no and since I was once all the way up to a size 22 I should have a few.. but I through them all out. Someone told me once if you keep them and know you have looser clothes you dont worry about over eating lol stupid right.. but if my jeans now get to tight I LOSE WEIGHT .. not go into the closet to get my fatties.

About 6 months ago I went through a VERY bad breakup, and about 2 months ago I was admitted to the hospital for about 30 days due to a really bad car accident. So, due to those two things, I haven't really been watching what I eat, and I haven't been able to go to the gym (Dr.'s orders), so, in the past 6 months I've managed to gain 15 pounds. So now my fat pants are the only ones that fit!But I just got cleared on Friday to start working out (slowly) again by my doctor. So hopefully in another 6 months, my clothes will fit again! :-)

I just moved, and while I packed I took out all of my clothes that no longer fit me. In the past year I've dropped about 50 pounds and I still had those "fat" clothes. I grabbed all of them and donated them to Salvation Army. That way, I can't feel like I can backslide and just start wearing my old clothes again. I use my tight and sexy pair of jeans as a status update on my weight, I'll put them on and instantly know if I'm gaining or losing weight. It's a challenge to not have that safety net of fat clothes, you're more on your toes about staying your preferred weight.
