Get rid of your fat clothes!

As soon as there's a piece of clothing that is too big for me, I either get it tailored to fit my slimmer body or I donate it to charity. I do not want the "fat clothes" to be there as a safety net like I have in the past. I would kid myself by thinking, "well, maybe I could wear these again when I'm pregnant." Well, I wasn't pregant, just fat again and wearing the fat clothes. This time, they are history. I recommend everyone get rid of their safety net, get rid of them now! If you have a closet full of sweaters you aren't wearing in the summer and you plan to be too skinny in the winter to wear them, get rid of them now vs later. This is an important step to commit yourself to your goals and believing in yourself that you will achieve your goals.

You can do it!

I've kept three suits that when I have money, I want to have tailored (Seeing as they need to be taken in 3-4 sizes, and they're lined, it's not cheap for alterations). Everything else has been given away.

However, last year, I'd given away 90% of my skinny clothes because I figured I was going to be happy where I was, and quit obsessing over my weight. Then in the fall found a fabulous easy for me diet that worked so well that I had to buy a whole new wardrobe... man, I could have saved $500 had I kept my stuff. Oh well, a bunch of battered women got some sweet clothes and suits...

Op here - Oh, I keep my skinny clothes for a long time. It's been so long since I was skinny I find that once I fit into them again, they look horribly outdated. It's nice to be able to fit into them again though. I still have more "interview suits" from college I want to get into before I donate them.

now, please don't take this as an insult. But partially because I'm younger, and partially because I tend to wear things that are classic or simple styling, my skinny stuff woud have been fine and no one would have known they were 4 years old. (I'm only 25) But I was moving, and I have so much stuff as is... figured I was being a pack rat and I needed to let them go. Never again I tell ya, never again...

LOL! Same thing here on the skinny clothes :D Saved 'em and when I could get back into them I wouldn't wear them for anything but gardening. I am getting a couple of my favorite dresses altered, but beyond that I have also done some donating.
