How would it feel to send all my big clothes to goodwill?

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

That's the question Sparkcoach asked me today. How would I feel? Oddly enough not so great. How many times in my life have I released those fat clothes, only to have to buy a whole new set in another year or two?

Frankly, the idea scares me. I don't want to have to do that again. I want this to be it, the final, once and for all, never go there again, last time. I just want to be healthy.

Promise you'll all be there to help?

    I went through my closet the other day and realized I had stuff in there from COLLEGE (which I doubt I even want to be thin enough to fit into) and stuff that looked like it came from my grandmother's dresser. I am committed to getting rid of any item of clothing that doesn't make me feel FABULOUS! Tim Gunn says we only need 10 things in our wardrobe anyway, right? LOL. YOU CAN DO IT!!!! We are NOT going to sit by and let you get away with ANYTHING other than success!

    I have just gone through my closet and gotten rid of anything that doesn't fit or feels good. It might help if you box them up and store them for a year. Then after a year of not needing them, you will feel you are able to get rid of them. It does take courage.

    Me myself I am a clothes hoarder! It was really hard to give up my "fat clothes" and if it wasn't for hubby there is NO WAY I would have been able to give them up! However I did keep 2 or 3 things that I wore at my biggest. and when I feel like I need to eat things that are bad or I get upset and want to head to the fridge I go to the drawer where I put these things and sometimes I just look at them and other times I have to put them on, this is a great help to me! Good luck on your journey and just think when you are done with this journey all the clothes you will be able to buy that at one time you only dreamed about, you can do this, remember YOU ARE WORTH IT

    It was hard for me to let them go. But I finally looked at them and thought, "I'm not the person who would wear those frumpy fat clothes anymore". And I had to stop fearing that I would be that size again. I made a permanent change in my life and had to let go of the things that tied me to the old me.

    I'll be here. It took me forever to rid myself of clothes that no longer fit and I have been at this awhile. In December it will be 5 years. Let go of the fear and the stress and move on. If it will make you feel better, only give away part of the extra items.
You won't be overwhelmed and it may become easier in time. HUGS!
