My Someday Box is Gone!

Over the years I was boxing away clothes that just did not fit me anymore. I accumilated a huge box clothes, ranging from shirts, pants, dresses, and skirts.

My husband kept telling me to get rid of them. He couldn't understand WHY on Earth I would keep clothing that I didn't or couldn't wear. I called it my "someday" box. It has sat in the garage for years. I've visited that box a couple times before only to be set in further disappointment and disguist to find that they still... did not fit.

Well, this last Saturday I decided it was now or never. I am at my lowest weight, and have kept it off- if these darn clothes don't fit me now... i'm getting rid of them!

Opened the box.... grabbed the first thing and put it on. IT FIT!?!! That had to be a fluke... tried on another, that fit also! The only thing I could say was, Oh my God! I got about half way through the box before I literally started shaking from shock and disbelief. Not only was everything fitting, some things were now TOO BIG! I had to take a DEEP breath to continue on the rest of the box... 

I was in complete disbeleif. Every single piece of clothing I had saved, fit me once again- and looked better than I ever remember. I used to dress SO nicely... then as my weight went up, my self-esteem went down. I felt like I was too fat and didnt deserve nice clothes. This was the absolute best experience... better than shopping for new clothes.I realized why I never let go of that box... it was because getting rid of it was like giving up completely. SO glad I didn't!

Now, about 5-7 years later... I say this with absolute joy and pride...

You are SUCH an inspiration to me. I have 25 lovely dresses that I used to adore and I've had to put them away too. I've only been on MFP for 6 weeks but now I'm really going to work at it. Well done!!

Good Going! I was just looking in my closet at my "not yet" clothes and feeling like I might not get there any time real soon. I WILL get there though.

That's amazing, so happy for you! This give me hope; I also have a someday box and I look at it every once in a while, trying to remember what it was like to wear those clothes. I'm determined to fit into them once again.

I have a t-shirt from Grade 9. GRADE NINE!!! I kept it for years and the day I could fit back into again was awesome. Your blog reminded me of that. I sometimes wear it to floor-hockey. It makes me feel like Gretsky. Better actually. :O)

I LOVE this!!! I know that feeling of not dressing as nice because of your size. My sister recently said to me "what happened to my stylish, hot sister?", when I told her that I planned to wear jeans and a baggy blouse to her 30th. I hate not being able to wear beautiful clothes because of my size. I've realised that I don't spend much money on myself at ALL anymore, as I'm always thinking "what's the point? you're going to look terrible anyway!". It's posts like these that give me the inspiration and motivation to keep going! Good on you!!!! :D

That's awesome!! I started myfitnesspal a couple weeks AFTER getting rid of all my pre-pregnancy clothes! Now I've lost 25lbs and look even better than I used to (and that was 4 kids and 8 years ago). And now I have a big ole stack of size 12, 14 and 16 pants that are set to donate!! I want to go shopping but I'm still losing so am waiting!!
