I am sitting here at a work event and an old Facebook memory from 6 years ago popped up. It looks like I was doing this same event exactly 6 years ago to the day.
I remember the dress I was wearing on the left. I got the whole outfit from Torrid and I felt so good. I was already down 30lbs or so from my heaviest.
I also remember having a hard time letting that dress go when it started getting too big for me. For one, it wasn’t cheap. But also I only got to wear it once or twice before I started to realize it didn’t even look good anymore because it wasn’t hanging on my body right. That’s a legitimate thought and concern that I know many people have on this journey—I know I did!
I eventually had to get over this fear. I also got rid of all the clothes I had hoped to fit back into one day, because the truth is.. when I started slimming down, my fashion sense had changed and part of the fun in that was getting to find new clothes to wear.
If you relate to this at all, my advice to you is to let go of your fear of letting go of your favorite pieces of clothes. It can become a way to limit yourself from reaching your other goals for a healthier, happier you. I still love that dress but I am also happier that I have so many other options to wear!
This dress served me well back then, but it doesn’t anymore. I donated it to help serve someone else. There’s an endless supply of clothes out there waiting to serve you!!
