Give Away Your 'Fat' Clothes

This Sparked Me!

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!

    That is EXACTLY what I am doing. I don't need to keep more STUFF around. Our church is having a garage sale, and I'm donating clothes that no longer fit. I don't want to EVER fit into them again!!

    I've been doing this as I lose weight. I don't want anything around the house that I could gain back into. I've gone down 1 size this year and I've only bought a few new clothes. I don't want to get too comfy in my current size even though it's great progress.

I kept my fav size 20 levis just for souveneir of how far I've come. Thy are super baggy on me now. Yay!!

    You are so right. I am having a garage sale in several weeks, mostly my 3-4 sizes of fat clothes. I don't even want to keep them around working in the yard or painting. They're outta here. emoticon

    Hmmm, one would think that is the case. I have lost the same 75+ 4x . Each time getting rid of the 'fat clothes', and having to purchase more. So, this time I'm keeping them. There is truth to the old saying, "different strokes for different folks".

    But my fat clothes will be great for painting, gardening and other household chores -- I won't care if they get ruined!

    I might have to walk around naked--I've been saving my skinny clothes from before I gained this weight!
