This Sparked Me!

I don't know why I was holding onto the larger sizes I had in my closet.
I found it so freeing to let the old me go.
I want to be a new me. I am almost there. Wish me luck. emoticon

    A large lady I came across won't let go of her outsized clothes, saying she'll just have to buy new ones. This is just planning to put the weight back on!

You could also post on your local spark team that you have clothes in a certain size available. Those of us who are actively losing weight are undergrowing our wardrobe and anticipate doing so again and again as the months pass. Buying a new wardrobe every few months is expensive, especially if we don't intend to stay there long!

    Just wanted to remind you - that you can claim these donations on your taxes a well - you may have to find out what $ amount the governments puts on certain items - but it's worth it to look into this - there is a deduction you can put on your taxes - you might want to look into it - every little bit helps.

    Thank you for that! That's exactly what I need to do!

    I did this when I lost a lot of weight. I had two practically new suits, but after the weight loss, I fit into my old suit again. I immediately took those suits to donate them...didn't want an excuse...

    Congratulations!!! I've been going through clothes too, and giving them away as I go. There's this church in my area that gives to people in need.
