I wanted to do this New Years Eve but I was unable to, I did this New Years Day instead. I've been donating all of the clothes that I no longer fit except for the ones that had my company logo on them. I decided to wrap up our Christmas tree in the old clothes and torch it in the front yard. There is no way that I'm going to be wearing those sizes again! As it burned I danced around it screaming "my clothes, my clothes, my clothes are on fire. I don't need no Water let those M...........s burn! Burn M..............s burn!". If you are close to my age you may recognize the slightly different lyrics to a song from The Bloodhound Gang. Not the genre that I prefer but the song was appropriate for the situation.

Whew! What a relief to click in here and see that you're talking about clothes. The topic title had me worried that we were breaking up.

Big clothes, big fire. Hot times. In your yard, I mean.

There is a big difference in old and a well preserved treasure :)

decided to keep some select fancy dresses and alter them to my goal size later on once I make it. Gonna donate a bunch as well!

You'll be disappointed when you go to the dressmaker. Most things can be taken in up to two sizes if that much. After that, all detail is lost or completely misplaced. .

So you're saying I should be in Madame Tussaud's? You're not doing well here, fella.

Story of my life!

I LOVE this! We remodeled our master closet this weekend where my poor hubby had to make me see that over half of my clothes are hilariously big on me. Poor guy didn't realize that would mean he'd have to sit through a fashion show of everything in the closet! Lol

I am saving stuff made of high quality fabric and things that I can cut down myself.

I have a beautiful size 24 black velvet opera jacket that I plan on turning into a knee length coat if I can find matching black velvet. My old adjustable dress dummy only goes up to size 16 I'm in a 20 now but look forward to sewing some altered formal wear. I think the kids do call this "up cycling"

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
