When did you get rid of clothes?



Recommended Posts

It is a big cleaning day at my house today. I am considering getting rid of some of my summer clothes that should not fit next year.

So those of you have been doing this longer than I have, is this premature?

Right now things are loose but serviceable.

I am planning on keeping enough to make it through, what I hope will be, a long warmish fall.

Every single time i dropped a size. So I was donating clothes weekly or every 2 weeks for months.

I do not keep clothes that are too large. It is just subconsciously giving yourself permission to regain.

I am constantly cleaning out my closet. I have a bag always in the closet to put stuff in for goodwill. In the past 4 months I bet I’ve given away 10-12 bags of clothes!

I just cleaned out my closet again. I have 6 storage boxes of clothes ready to be gotten rid of, but unlike those of you in the US and other western countries, my options for getting rid of the clothes here are pretty limited. When I have some time, I'll photograph most of them and put them up online to see if there are any larger women living in this area will want them.

I am 2 months out and have already bagged 3 bags of clothes and taken to Goodwill. It is fun to see how many clothes don't fit. I've lost 53 lbs so far and 25 inches overall. I'm in xl now and have some larges waiting in the wings.

I get rid of clothing as soon as I can't wear it anymore. I have no plans to go back up in sizes so I can't waste space in my closet saving clothing I will never wear again.

As soon as I went down in size I gave my friends and family my bigger sized clothing.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
