I have to move in a few weeks and I am tossing these clothes out. I don't wanna have a safety blanket. Even heavier I never had fat jeans(for bloated days never had that problem). Not giving myself wiggle room. I wore a tank dress today and had to wear a jacket over it cut bra band was showing then the tank part was loose. Chunk!!!


Curse you iPhone!!!

Throw em out! If anything, the financial side will help motivate you to stay at your ideal size. Keeping them "incase" could just make easier to put weight back on. See it as permanent and throw them out, instead of keeping them as if its temporary.
And congratulations girl!

Hi NCC,

I know you posted this a while ago so I hope you have sorted out your wardrobe, but if you are still looking for some tips I thought I could share some of my experience.

I have been gradually lost 70lbs through the past few years and still have some clothes from 30-40lbs ago too. It can be hard, but I definitely would say its best to get rid of everything that can't be modified with belts, ect. I'm glad you found a friend who could use your clothes, that's what I've done with some of mine that have gotten out of fit and it feels better knowing that at least your friend can continue to spread your awesome fashions!

I would also say that when you buy clothes, keep in mind that you may be changing sizes again soon so look for items that could be easily modified in the future to be smaller. One of my favorite items that seems to last through several size changes are jersey stretch dresses with empire waists. I have run through several sizes and because of the casual structure I can still wear them after continuing to lose. While I absolutely love structured clothing, I think it has been helpful for me to purchase items with more stretch and a little tighter so that they still fit as my body changes.

Hope everything's going well, and that this was somewhat helpful!

It is time for me to inspect my closet more closely now. I have got four bags now as months have passed. I started dumping in february because it was time to clean out and give away now because it's not going to fit. I dont want to have to start all over again *wails*

Congrats on losing so much weight! you're already on the right track,but for"just in case" i'd keep only a 5day work wardrobe of the bigger clothes and donate the rest.I think if i had to replace most of my clothes i would cry.

We are clearly in the same boat. I'm anywhere from a 10-16 depending on the brand/cut. It's super frustrating!

My belly and arms are causing the issue from some. But confession I have been getting in my own way lately. I realize that as I get smaller things change and I don't want them to. Idk. Feel like a screw up I should be further along than I am now...(in a size 14 in the hip, it's the shirts that are driving me up the wall)

I have this same problem. I seriously hate getting dressed. Earlier this year I bought two pairs of pants for work for 200 dollars. I wore them once. They don't fit. It pains me to part with those pants, but before the year ends my closet is getting cleaned out.

I went out shopping Black Friday and manages to snag a TON of clothes on sale. My entire closet is well on its way to being revamped. Next up...spring/summer fashion
