I have spent the last couple of weeks going through and throwing away a lot of items. I decided it was time to say goodbye to the last of my chubby clothes.
I am not sure as to why I decided to keep the clothes for as long as I did. I found a garbage bag and filled it with clothes and then I donated it to the local Salvation Army. Not only am I cleaning out my closets, but I am giving someone else the opportunity to have some clothes that fits them.
I also received a nice tax write off.
I then went in to the store and went shopping. I have to admit it is so much more fun shopping for clothes. I have decided I have neglected myself for way too long. When I was chubby, I just bought clothes because they fit, not necessarily flattering or even that I really liked them. I am getting back in to wearing clothes that fit and flatter. It has to fit or else I won't buy it. No bigger sizes because I like it. I am trying trends that I would never have even thought about. I am even getting back to my love of shoes. I am even going to switch out my purses when I have the opportunity.
I am slowly rebuilding my wardrobe and I love it. I have to try everything on as I have fit sizes 3-6 (I'm a size 4 now) and XS-L (usually a M). I am enjoying this new chapter of my life. A new thrift store opened a couple of towns away...I can't wait to take an afternoon and go exploring.
