FASHION DISCUSSION: It's time to clean out those closets!
Ladies and gents, do NOT hold on to clothes in hopes of fitting back into them. Most likely, when you return to your target weight, those clothes will be out of style and far off trend. You can look like your BEST at any size. Let go of those old clothes. Donate them to your local charity/thrift store.
If you have clothes in your closet/drawers with rips, stains, and tears (that were not on the item intentionally) then it's time to let it go. Chances are, you'll buy another 'favorite' item and you'll soon forget about your other item. Let it go, throw it in the garbage.
Your closet should be a place of refuge, save for special event items and items of sentiment (wedding/prom dress or tux) if you have clothes in the closet that you haven't worn in two or more years, let it go. Clean out that closet. Make your closet a place of ease not angst.
Bad Memories - So many times we hold on to items because of a memory. Stumble upon an item that brings up a bad time, you can set yourself back a couple days. My brother once got bit by a dog. The dog ripped his pants leg but nothing happened to his really cool winter coat. For weeks, my mom tried to get him to wear that coat, but he wouldn't. Finally, he told her that the coat bought up the memory of being bit by the dog. She never asked him to wear the coat again.
Although that coat was basically new, on trend, and unused, the bad memory associated with the coat made the coat useless to my brother. If you have items in you closet that are marred by a bad memory, let it go. Cleaning out you closet is not only about cleansing your physical space, but cleansing your emotional space. Buy something new and make a new memory.
