As you lose weight, make sure you give away, donate or sell your "fat" clothes. Keeping them around only signifies you don't think your weight loss will stick. The added financial burden of having to buy bigger clothes again may be just enough to help keep you on track!

IN THE LAST 6 YEARS I LOST 108 POUNDS AND GUESS WHAT I DID WITH MY "FAT" CLOTHES?I STORED THEM IN THE GARAGE....JUST IN CASE!!WELL I'VE BEEN HEARING ABOUT WHEN YOU LOSE WEIGHT GIVE AWAY OR SELL THEM.BUT,I NEVER COULD!

AS YOU LOSE THE WEIGHT AND YOUR CLOTHES GET BIGGER
Throw away your fat clothes (actually give them to charity and if you have the energy put them in your garage sale) Go to thrift stores and consignment shops to buy yourself clothes in your new size. I have found some great bargains, a few never worn clothes, and saved lots of dollars for a celebration party or vacation when I meet my goal. I would rather spend money on a great vacation then put it into an outfit I may only wear once or twice. 236
I gave away all my old "skinny clothes". I am not buying any clothes right now. When I get down to size 10, I am buying a whole new wardrobe9 I am giving away all my clothes that are too big now. That way, If I start to slide up the scale, I have more motivation to get myself back in check
