    Hello

    I'm about to drop a jean size and wondered what people do with their "too big" clothes.

    Do you keep them just in case you put the weight back on or do you put them out to charity ?

    Cheers

    Got a bag full already to take to the charity shop. I think if you get rid of them then you are less likely to put the weight back on cos you know you'll not have a thing to wear if you do!

    Im glad this has been posted because I was thinking about this. I have always saved them when I have lost weight before but I am so determined to lose this weight that they are going on ebay or charity shop yeah !!!! So I bought a pair of jeans and a top in a size smaller and I have got them to give me inspiration and keep me going x x

    I'm going to keep one pair of my biggest jeans and stick it on the wall :D.

    It's best to not keep your old clothes because if you do start gaining weight, you have no choice but to stick to the plan and get back into those tiny clothes of yours :D

    Yep, I agree - get rid - eBay or charity. If they're in your wardrobe, they're available if weight starts to creep back on and you don't notice so much. If you've not got any "fat" clothes then you're made aware quite quickly if you start to regain and you can sort it out while it's just a few pounds and fairly easy.
    How great that your clothes are now too big!!

    Hiya, as soon as they no longer fit I got rid as I have a tendency to buy clothes and 'slim' into them I have a lot fo brand new stuff which is now to big so have sold them on ebay, also I'm planning to have a carboot sale when the weather gets a bit warmer to get rid of things that i'm not to happy with selling on ebay

    Agree with everyone, definitely get rid of them, as the old saying goes "out with the old and in with the new".
    I am going to sell the new big clothes on Ebay that I havent worn, charity shop for the ones that I wouldnt sell, and for all the old worn out clothes, I think a celebratory bonfire at target with a glass of chilled white wine wearing my smallest newest clothes will be the order of the day. What a fantastic day it will be.

    Charity, but keep a pair of your largest trousers/or skirt just to compare and to remind you of what used to be, you'll be gobsmacked. I've kept the pair of jeans which area shown in my signature for this reason
