Get Rid Of Your Clothes As Soon As They Are Too Big!
Members Were Sparked
I've struggled with weight all of my adult life. I'm also a bit of a penny pincher, so in the past when I would lose some weight, I'd hang on to my clothes "just in case".
Almost 2 years ago, I started this journey for the last time. I've had some ups and downs, but I get rid of any clothes the minute they feel 2 big or I don't like the way they look. I know this has made all the difference since this is the first time in my life I've sustained any kind of weight loss & it's been over a year.

As you lose weight, get rid of the "fat clothes," the clothes that have become too big on you, and never turn back.
Make a pact with yourself never to buy bigger clothes again. Unless you simply want to keep one item for nice "proof" photos of your former self. This is a huge motivating factor for me to keep my weight where it is, and not allow myself to backtrack. It's my "no-turning-back" policy
I get rid of my old clothes AS SOON as they are too big. If the remainder of my clothes begin feeling too tight, I know it's time to buckle down and lose a pound or two - or else I won't have any clothes to wear! This forces me to maintain my weight or keep losing.
