Last week I was sucked into Cyber Monday and played the “one for you” and “one for me” game. My “one for me’s” were delivered last night. As I tried on each piece to make sure it fit, it dawned on me that my closet is full and more importantly I am out of hangers! This can only mean one thing, I must purge the closet.
Up to this point it never occurred to me that I should get rid of clothes that no longer fit me. In dire need of some hangers I decided to start my mission. I took out some items I knew were too big and some I was unsure of the style altogether, put them in bags and lined them up by the door for donating.
Then the fear set in. What if I gain the weight back and I don’t fit in my current clothes? What if I need them? But, what if I don’t?
Then I remember I had just tried on clothes that are two sizes smaller! This feels way better than THAT felt! My largest size I wore was a 2X. I used to shop at what I lovingly called “Lazy Bitches” (Lane Bryant). Now I wear a size XL and sometimes could probably get into a large.
I’ve accomplished three goals here: 1) purging the old clothes to make room for new and smaller ones, 2) reminded myself to stop the negative talk, 3) donating clothes to those in need.
