Online shopping crisis! :( - April 12th 2013, 12:22 AM

Okay, maybe it's not that big of a deal but I bought a bunch of stuff online last week, and I just got them today. The problem is two of the skirts don't fit me, they're to small Im trying to loose weight anyways, so should I keep them and make them my goal weight (they're like 3-4 inches to small) or should i just find a way to return them? Even though i really want tow wear them xD

My best advice is to return them for a bigger size if you want to wear them. It will probably take some time before you would lose enough weight to lose them. While keeping them could be good motivation, it really depends on whether you're willing to wait to be able to wear them or not.
So really, it's your choice.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I agree with Nicole, if you really want to wear them, then return them for the bigger size. If you do not mind not wearing them for a while than you can just wait until you lose the weight to where they will fit.

I've had the same thing happen before. I'm honestly a very lazy person, it's hard for me to gather motivation to workout.. although I really do want to be in more shape.. but having something I really like, but can't quite fit into, would give me motivation to get where I want to be. But it's really all up to you.

Return them and get a larger size.
If you do end up losing weight, you'd have to replace all your bottoms theoretically anyway. Why keep the small skirts as a reminder? To make yourself feel bad?

If I was you, I'd return them for a larger size because it's better to have something and be able to wear it now, even if you could use them for motivation to be able to fit in them. Or, alternatively, you could return them and wait till you've reached your goal weight before you order them again.
