Saying Goodbye

Sunday, October 10, 2010

It has been a long time coming but I finally cleaned out my closet. I am going to take all of my big clothes to my mom and sister when I go up for my sister's wedding at the end of the week. Now my bed is piled with clothes and my closet looks nearly empty. I have to say, this is a bitter-sweet goodbye. Some of the clothes I have had since before my kids were born. Some of them were passed down by my mother-in-law when she started losing weight due to cancer. She passed away nearly 8 years ago and getting rid of the clothes is difficult but needs to be done. It feels good though.

While digging through my closet I found a suede coat I bought the winter of 1996. It was my first year of college and I did not want to wear my high school jacket so Scott and I splurged on a nice coat. I wore it that one winter and by the next winter it would not zip. I wore it the next winter but it had to be left open so I usually swiped one of Scott's jackets instead. Guess what? It fits!

I stood in front of the mirror with a pair of my size 24 slacks I bought two years ago when I started working at CASA. It was like a commercial. They stretched out on either side making me look much smaller. When I put them on, they fall around my hips and threaten to fall off if I move.

I am saying goodbye to everything that has a 2 in front of it. I took out all of my clothes that were larger than an 18. Even my scale read 200.6 this morning! I am hoping in another day or two I will not have a 2 in front of anything.

Goodbye 200's and size 20's; hello 100's and size teens!

    Good for you. I am so happy that you are able to say good bye to all those big clothes. Christmas and smaller sizes is just around the corner. And the suede coat wear it with pride.
