Never Going to See Those Sizes Again!!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Mirage727 is right. It's time to let go. I've given away my 2Xs, 1Xs, 18s, 16s, 14s, 12s, and all but my most favorite 10's. But I've hung on to many 8s -- some I feel okay in, but many are way too baggy and unflattering. Most of the big stuff is winter clothing that I only wear a few days of the year here in central Florida; my summer wardrobe is pretty slim. So I'm picking up on Monty's challenge. I'm going through the closet today and giving away at least 25 clothing items that are too big. I'm never going to see those sizes again!!

    Take the plunge...I would rather have only a few clothes that really fit and flatter than lots that don't!

    Hooray for truly embracing your identity as a permanently slim person. I admit that I've held onto some of my bigger clothes out of a fear of regain. I got rid of all of my bigger clothes after losing 115 pounds ten years ago and had to buy a new clothes as the weight crept back. Not this time! I'm not going back and have resolved to toss my 18s and 20s. I'm never going back there again!

That is the spirit! Makes more room for more size 4's too ;-)

    Good for you-maybe someone else will benefit from your generosity. I have already taken in 2 bags and started a new pile-unlike you, I a anxious to get those bigger clothes out of the house-do not want the temptation to gain any of that weight back if they are there to slide back into!!

    You are so right, you never will! Lately I've been trying on things in my closet more often and I have an ever growing pile on the closet floor. I've already taken clothes to a charity to donate 3 times since last summer!

    I had some beautiful career pieces in sizes 14 & 16 that I donated to a lady who ran a ministry to provide job interview clothes to ladies who couldn't afford them. I still own my size 12s, but they are too baggy now. I have been wearing 10s, but they are getting baggy on me now too. Being able to buy smaller clothes is the most wonderful reward for hanging in there with diet and exercise! I applaude your decision to go ahead and get rid of your large sizes. emoticon

    YAY!!! If you are like me, you will find that VERY LIBERATING. Something about getting rid of clutter makes me feel "light" and open to new possibilities and experiences!

    Smart woman for giving those clothes away. BUT, you can always sell them on Craigslist if you want.

You look GOOD.

    Good for you, Marsha! Eights and sixes are my go-to clothes, and I can wear vintage 10s too : but it took me forever to give away the 20s, 18s, 16s, 14s, 12s!! You will NEVER need them again. You are maintaining for life!!

    Good for you in letting go of the old. No more holding onto them "just in case". And just think how much fun it'll be replacing them with just the right ones.

    Well done for having kept the weight off for long enough that you know you are in this size to stay!!! I can't wait until I get there!
