I am so good at finding something to complain about

Okay, so I've been on the South Beach diet for just shy of a year. I cannot express how happy I am I gave it a try. I really was such a sceptic but it actually worked. I reached my goal weight and since then have really only loosely followed the diet. I think cutting out the amount of carbs I was eating and filling up on vegetables instead has been key for me. I still eat out and I still indulge in ooey gooey desserts occasionally and at celebrations I cut myself some slack. Not only did I reach my goal weight but I continued to lose weight and am slightly under my initial goal. I feel great and have a lot more energy.

But you know I have to complain, don't you. Here's the problem. I have all these clothes that don't really fit me all that well anymore. I may have lost nearly 30 lbs but you wouldn't know it because I'm still wearing my extra larges and size 12's. I'm just so cheap I hate to go out and spend all kinds of money on new clothing for me. Some of my clothing I bought just before I began the diet and it's practically brand new! And part of me is worried that this is a fluke and I'm going to wake up one morning needing those size 12's. I really need to go out and do some shopping for me but the Yankee spendthrift part of me is telling me "no!" I need to tell that Yankee to shut up, get in the car and get myself to the store.
