I kept my more recent "fat clothes" for a year after I hit goal. On the first anniversary of reaching goal, I celebrated by giving them all away. I work best with a goal in front of me and once I had hit my goal weight, I substituted giving away the clothes.

I never understood the concept of the clothes being a safety net. Although buying larger and larger sizes on the way up was depressing and awful, I kept doing it over and over again. It wasn't enough of a wake-up call then and it didn't really seem like it was the kind of thing that would make a difference the second time around. I know whether my eating is under control and the ease of putting on a larger size pair of pants doesn't have any effect on that, at least for me.
