Time to Give Away Clothes?
Monday, September 09, 2013
I have lost about 50 pounds (it varies by the day). I still have about 6 more pounds to my goal weight but as I have previously blogged, my dedication and motivation to keep losing is seriously waning. I decided it was time to take control when my size 12 clothes weren’t fitting and I had to buy a few size 14 items. I am now down to a size 4/6 depending on the store (I even have one size 2 skirt that I never wear but I had to buy). In the 18 months since I started this journey, I have given away all of my size 14 clothes and most of the size 12. But I basically have clothes in every size from a 2 to a 12. Boxes and boxes worth.
I’m about to buy my first house and I’m doing a preliminary pre-move inventory asking, “do I really want to move this”? And as I looked at the boxes in my closet, it seems silly to move all of these clothes that don’t fit. Especially in this case, when it’s not like I hope I’ll fit into them again one day. In fact, I hope I never fit into them again.
But I also know that life happens and weight loss and maintenance isn’t easy and there’s a 95% percent chance that those clothes WILL fit again. And I don't want to have to go buy new clothes when I had a whole wardrobe full.
So what’s a girl to do?? Do I give them all away? Do I keep some? Thoughts, advice, suggestions??
