My FLYlady email was suggesting going through the wardrobes and chucking stuff that didn't fit/get worn at all too.
I'd already decided I needed to go through the kids' clothes, they've been given bags of hand-me-downs recently and the dining table was swamped!
All the hints were enough, even for me -
So I spent a few hours going through my wardrobe completely. I hadn't realised how much I had that was too big already! Or how many things I was holding on to because they fit, but I felt awful wearing. Or how many things were simply not getting used at all, just taking up too much space.
Once I was finished I had 2 bin bags full of nwanted clothes to go to charity, and a wardrobe that was tidy and useable.

Being still so overweight, it's easy to overlook how much of a difference I've made to my health/shape/size already. But I *am* nearly 10% down on my start weight, and eating clean and working out.
Being 2-3 sizes down from my top weight already, is pretty awesome. I've still got a long way to go, but I do need to make sure that I appreciate how far I have come already instead of just thinking that I'm 'still' fat/too big/unhealthy. Got to do that positive spin that motivates so well - I'm so much less fat, so much smaller, so much healthier!
|Today, size 18|
I didn't do measurements at the beginning of August, after a month chasing the same lbs up and down, I thought it pointless. By next week I hope to be recording some BIG changes seeing the difference in my clothes!
Having started back at the gym too, I am really looking forward to watching my shape change, and chucking out the 16s and 18s when I go through my wardrobe next time!
