I had about three baskets of laundry to fold. All winter stuff like sweaters and tunics and i just donated them. I won’t need them with warm weather approaching and when it gets to be cold again, I’ll need new clothes so I’ll just save myself the closet space.

I plan on doing that with every load of laundry for the next few months: keep the basics, keep things that still fit but donate the rest so it’s not lying around.

Honestly, there is nothing I have hated more than Plus Size clothing. It is ALL going to local thrift shops.
Today I am exchanging 3 pair of linen summer pants for 3 pair that are one size smaller. I wear clothes but do not beat them to death so everything I give away will be excellent used condition.

I have donated any that aren’t post surgery comfy. I won’t need them Then I got rid of things I didn’t love or even really like but they were the best I could find fir my size. Hoping to purchase clothes I actually like soon enough.

Honestly, you are likely to lose weight so quickly it might be a good idea to exchange them for one of each of the next 3 sizes down! :D

Thank you for saying that. It is very encouraging and the thought of it makes me happy.
It’s getting hot in NC and I still have school for one more month. I actually received 4 pairs of pants and 1 shirt and they all need to go back. Your idea to buy the next 3 sizes down is a good one as we wear summer weight here until Thanksgiving.
Thank you again. Your comment made me smile!

I just donated all my 330 lbs + clothing. I never want to see it again LOL
Luckily I kept a bin of clothes from when I lost a bunch of weight from the past. It's cool pulling out the old clothes that haven't fit me since 2018.

I often donate my things. Sometimes I just give them away to acquaintances or neighbors or sell them. Often I get bored with my clothes quickly, I wear them for one or two seasons, and I want something new. To not spend too much on a complete closet renovation, my girlfriends and I sometimes swap clothes.
Another original way to update things is to decorate them with embroidery or other decorations. For example, I made myself beautiful shorts from old jeans and ordered embroidery with flowers on the side pocket. Maybe you too have done something creative with your clothes? Share, please.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
