Big Clothes - When and How

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

At what point do you get rid of your BIG clothes?

When they are too big?

When you reach your goal weight?

Do you hang onto just 1 top and bottom to use as a showpiece as to how far your journey took you?

Do you keep them all, "just in case"?

Do you get ditch them all so you can't?

    I have always had clothes in at least 3 sizes, but no more. Fat clothes are going out as soon as they don't fit anymore. In fact, that's what I did today. Switched summer and winter wardrobe and got rid of at least half.

    I kind of wish I had saved something from my largest size, but didn't.

    I've thought about that also. Right now for me my 15 lb loss, hasn't made that much of a difference. However, when I get to the point of where the clothes I'm wearing now are way to large, I don't think I'll want to keep all of them. The large t-shirts can be worn out to the ranch when I visit my horse. The pants I won't ever want to wear again. Anything really cute hmmmm ...maybe I will have to shrink it.

    I don't have a lot of clothes, and have always held onto clothing I've outgrown. Let me tell you, I think that is a headset that induces failure. I've always managed to grow back into them. This time around, I'm going to save a pair of my biggest jeans (for documentation purposes:)) and give the rest away. We have a local "home" that supports new immigrants to the country. I suspect they don't get a lot of extra-large donations. My clothes are good quality and I believe they might help someone who needs to look more professional at work, for example. So my advice would be: Wait until you're down two sizes, then give away the largest. And, then, of course, work your way through all the sizes until you get to the size you are happy to live in!

    Have a great week --

    You have to do what you're most comfortable with. I find it easy to just donate things that I know I wouldn't have bought if I were smaller .... you know the "Oh, for that price, I'll buy it, UGLY fat clothes," LOL! Things that I absolutely loved (and were sorta pricey), I put in storage bins up in our attic. At the change of seasons, I usually go through everything; and, if it's still too big, THEN I find it easier to donate. Some items I just seem to have a sentimental attachment to, for whatever reason, and it takes me a little longer to let them go! I will tell you that it feels GREAT to put on something that's way too big every now and then and say, "Well, I'm never going to wear THAT again" just before tossing it into the donation pile!!!
