Throw Out Clothes That Are Too Large!

This Sparked Me!

Once you don't fit into your bigger clothes, get rid of them. That way you are reminded if the pounds start creeping won't have 'fat' clothes to go to. Maybe someone else can use them in transition during their weight loss.

    I am struggling with this one. I have been a yoyo dieter and have several sizes in my closet, but each time I go shopping and get something new, I get rid of something that is too big! I think my closet would be empty if I got rid of everything. I have been buying size 4's and getting rid of the 16s and 14s.

    Everytime i try on something that is too big, it goes into the donation pile i have in a bag in my closet. Lightens the load in my dresser for sure!

    I guess keeping large clothes is like admitting that your present self is just temporary and you'll go back to that size eventually...
still, I really can't say goodbye to my wardrobe. I just need to learn how to wear the same clothes in a new way (God save belts!)

    I have been thinking about this lately, too. I have two pairs of "fat pants" that need to go, but would if I have to buy new "fat pants" later. I am so cheap....I would rather keep them. Ironically, I have donated some of my smallest size clothes recently. I guess I feel like I will never fit into them again.

I am going to work on donating my fat clothes, too.

    ♦ Well, I did that back when I lost the weight and now that I have re-gained it I have to wear my husband's sweats... emoticon
