Today I volunteered to help set up the "clothing exchange" at my church. The principle of this is, bring in a clothing donation, get a credit, and exchange that for "new" clothes. One can buy anything for $1. The goal is not to make a profit, but to get good clothing out to those that need it.
I haven't been doing very well with the dieting and exercise program and have gained about 25 pounds. A good portion of my wardrobe has been placed in a box, waiting for that day when I will be able to wear it again. I took the box, today, and donated it. i will use my credits to get clothes that fit.
Now, you might interpret that to mean that I'm giving up hope. Not necessarily. I just feel that I deserve clothes that fit and flatter and I am not going to wait until some distant day for that to happen. I will have clothes that feel good by the end of the week. It will be nice to have clothes that aren't painful.
