    Hiya Sparkle,
    I gave all my clothes to the local charity shops (sizes 24 down to 14s over time) Marie Curie, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research and Cats Protection League. They were all delighted to get plus size womens clothing, as it sells very well apparently.
    Some shops will even collect it from you, if you'd struggle to get it to the shop.
    Well done on your loss, getting rid of the "fat" clothes is a great idea to prevent slipping backwards, good on you!

    Just noticed you're a fellow Scouser!
    There are loads of charity shops in Old Swan, not far from me and the cat one is in Wavertree High Street.
    You're halfway there now, keep it up! xx

    Why don't you put them on ebay?? I bet there's loads of people who don't like shopping for those sizes but look out for things on line... just a thought. x

    I only sorted my wardrobes out this weekend, something I had meant to do a couple of months back. I gave some to family and friends and what was no good for them went to the local charity shop. There were brand new dresses still with the price tags on them never worn.

    The feeling when you get rid of them is tremendous. I made myself a solemn vow I would NEVER get back to the size I was.

    I've given all my size 20 & 18 clothes to someone who sends them out to Africa.....hope there are some larger ladies out there...if not, they can always use the dresses as tents, maybe?
