After almost 2 years I finally made the decision to get rid of all my 20 to 26 size clothing. I have been hanging on to it "just in case". At size 14, I have made the decision that I won't go back to size 20 or over 200 lbs. It has been really hard to let go but I am ready.
So today I took my things to 2 consignment shops.....BUT they didn't want such large sizes. What a kick in the gut. My clothes are so big that nobody wants them. After going home and crying on hubby's shoulder for a while, I went back out and went to a thrift store that supports "A Woman's Work"
"A Woman's Work provides support for women in the St. Vrain Valley whose immediate financial needs cannot be met by other sources.
We ask only that recipients perform an act of kindness in return."
They only wanted seasonal things so after I gave them my summer clothes, I went to the Humane Society Thrift store. They took everything and even commented how they couldn't believe the clothes had been mine. Made me feel good.
So after all the stressing I came home with a weight off my shoulders. This is it! I am size 14 and I won't go back.
