Do tight pants make you feel fat?

Or do loose clothes make you feel skinny???

My problems last week with bloating and water retention really started me thinking about clothes. I have some great clothes and while they fit, they don't fit like I'd like them to. I know for some people when their clothes get tight it spurs them into losing a couple of pounds. I'm just the opposite. When my clothes start to get tight I start eating more. That is not good. On the other hand, when I wear something that is loose I tend to not eat as much. I find it interesting how my mind works. I guess we all have to find what works for us, what motivates us, and what gets us going. We also need to find what doesn't work for us and note it so we don't fall into those traps over and over again. This whole weight loss thing really is a journey with lots of curves and hills along the way. This was just a little detour along the way.

My problem is that my clothes fit differently now, even though I haven't gained (or lost) any weight.
Tight pants just make me feel uncomfortable and to loose pants make me feel sloppy.

I'm done

 I fall into old habits pretty easily. I guess because they are something I'm used to even if they don't really work for me anymore....
