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...
I NO LONGER HAVE A "SOMEDAY" BOX! :D
