zephyr1973 I too am guilty of keeping clothes. I have started a bag in the corner of my room. If I try something on and it is no longer wearable, in to the bag it goes! When the bag is full, I bring it to a consignment store or goodwill.
Our bookkeeper comes in once a week to work and she said something that really hit home "you aren't wearing your big people clothes anymore, your shirts *fit* your body and it's great to see!" I used to wear clothes that draped my body rather than fit, and I want all my clothes to fit! It'll help keep you conscious of your weight!
