Poll: Should I give them away?

Sunday, July 19, 2009

I am cleaning through my clothes and giving away some items to Good Will. I came across my size 16 jeans. I am currently in a size 14. I bought a size 16 and size 14 jeans after I gave birth to my son three-years-ago.

Question: Should I give away my size 16 jeans or hold onto them?

    If you want to keep them for the big after photo, get a sharpie and write motivation sayings or a goodbye letter to the larger person you were. That way you can't wear them but can see the big changes that you made.

    Everyone has made good points, but let me offer a different perspective. My biggest size was 16, and I got rid of everything. Then the same thing with the 14's. I got rid of them all so there would be nothing to wear if I got bigger again, thus I couldn't possibly regain the weight or I'd have to miss work due to nothing to wear. BUT I wish I had saved just one pair of 16's for my "after" photos. I would have liked to pose in them with my body swimming around and showing off how they're much too big!
    So... IF you are interested in my idea, you could save one pair of 16's but do something like cut off the legs mid-thigh, so they can't be worn again. That's what I wish I had done! I'd love to have a series of photos of myself shrinking out of those old pants.

    Hmmm, maybe I will go to a thrift store and find some 16s just to pose in!

    Do you want to wear them again? I am guessing the answer is no. I have nothing in my closet bigger than I am right now. That way I have now way to go but down.

    Let them go! I am so looking forward to the day that I get to toss some of my jeans. I have several friends around me that are a little larger than I so we are sort of passing our "don't fit anymore" clothes to the next person on the list. This way, I can help someone else and get the clothes out of my closet.

    Good luck!
