A True Sign That I'm in Maintenance

These garbage bags are filled with clothes to be donated to Goodwill.

They're taking up precious space in my hallway.

The bags are not filled with clothes that don't fit me.

The clothes still fit me.

Sizes small, 6, 8, XS, etc.

These clothes are either just no longer my style or are perhaps a little worn out.

Still perfectly good clothes.

When I was a fatty and had to get rid of clothes, it was usually because the clothes were too small.

As I lost my 115+ lbs, I shared with you about donating clothes that were too big for me: you can see one of those old blog posts here.

But to get rid of clothes that still fit?!




PS: Did you see that I moved all of my tickers up to the top of the page? Check it out.  That four year bandiversary is just around the corner.


  1. Congratulations on long term maintenance:)

  2. Craziness, right!? I just did that too and was thinking how weird it was! Loved your post!

  3. I was just noticing some of my summer clothes are getting old and ragged, and that's a new phenomenon for me!
    Good for you!

  4. Maintenance: An undiscovered country. Bodly going where you've never gone before me.

  5. Amazing!!! I want to be like you when I'm a grown up lap-bander :)

  6. I love this post. Thanks for always being a strong force for inspiration in this community.
