body changes and keeping clothes

Hi everyone!

I don't post here often, but I love the support I see in this community.

I've been feeling pretty down about myself lately. I have come a long way in loving my body, which is great! But this has been harder to maintain as I've been gaining weight. I am not sure how much I gained because I don't weigh myself. I assume I am gaining weight because of how my body feels/looks and how clothes fit. What bothers me the most is my clothes. I love a lot of my clothes, and I don't want to get rid of them.

I tell myself I'll lose weight just to fit into what I have. I tell myself the fabric is also clingy and rises up so I only need to lose a bit. I hate this train of thought! I don't want my confidence to be hold until I get back to a certain weight. 

How do you all deal with body changes? Do you get rid of clothes that no longer fits? 

ETA: I don't plan to lose weight. I wrote this to find support emotionally, and advice on clothes that no longer fit. But not support in how to lose weight.

The holidays may be over, but I'm still getting presents! I wore this outfit with my new brown boots and obi belt to my friends house.  I was looking through her clothes and saw this beautiful scarf that happened to match quite well.  My friend graciously gave it to me upon admitting it wasn't her taste. score!
