My Mountain of Clothes

Monday, April 19, 2010

Rather than let the rain get me down this weekend. I decided to finally clean out my closet and bedroom. I had lots of clothes that no longer fit, but I had no clue I had as much as I did. I had over 40 pairs of jeans, pants and capri's that no longer fit. I had over 50 shirts. I even got rid of underwear, socks and bathing suits. These clothes were not just a little loose, I looked like I was swimming in everything. It was very liberating! I am not going back there again. So goodbye size 30w, 28w, 26w, 24w, 22w and 20w. I will not be missing you!

I plan on selling my gently used items on ebay. Lots of things still have the tags on them. I am going to keep one outfit for my infamous before and after shots.

    What a great, liberating feeling this must be for you.... maybe you should burn 'em.... just kidding that would just be wrong.

    I did the same thing around the house yesterday, but mostly in my..... dreaded basement & garage "stuff!" Hope my husband doesn't notice... hehe

    I tried selling my clothes in a consignment shop and had no luck at all. :-(
    I DO have a fried who just had bariatric surgery though and she was at 400+ pounds when she started her liquid fast before the surgery and since then (End of Jan this year) she has lost over 50 pounds. I decided a few weeks back that she will be the happy recipient of my "fat" clothes when she is down another 100lbs or so. Thankfully I don't have to try and sell them now and I am so happy that I can give them to a friend!

    I'll have to show that to my hubby the next time he teases me about all my clothes. i tend to have a few favorites and i wear them out then i have to throw them away. My stuff is definatly not gently used. although i should go through my closet to find summer clothes. i had to buy some smaller size stuff at the end of last summer;. i hope they are not to small now.
