Fat Clothes For Charity

19 Apr

Nat came up with a great idea not so long ago – she asked all her clients to handover their fat clothes to her which she would then donate to charity.  No, not to some poor fat stripper named Charity, more like the St Vinnies type of charity.  Ya dig?

I didn’t think I would have that much to give but I ended up with 2 and a half garbage bags full of clothes that no longer fit.  Liberating!  And scary.  I have pretty much an empty closet now.  All the better to shop for my friends, all the better to shop. 

So, I thought I would share with you what I found!

Firstly, I came across this ugly denim skirt that I have hung on to for SEVEN YEARS in the hopes of fitting into it again.  Seven years!  People get less for murder! I remember at the beginning of last year I could not pull it up past my thighs.  Now it hangs off my hips.  But I can’t wear it now because of it’s incredible dag factor.  So off to the clothing bin it goes.  I don’t think the homeless care too much about what’s in fashion right now… right? 

Mind the mess in the background...

It USED to be cool! I promise!

Scary huh?

Well, it’s about to get a whole lot scarier!

This is me at my hens night 4 years ago.


This is me trying on the same dress the other night. 


It literally would not stay up.

Yeah… That’s my bra… what of it?
So, now the fun part begins!  Building back up my closet!  Yay!  (I can hear Justin groaning already…)
On an unrelated note, I will be MIA for a few days.  Don’t worry, I’ll be back!  Just popping down the coast for a bit of a getaway.  When I get back I will unleash the full fury of Project Tighten Up *said in the movie guy voice*What is it?  What is it??  Oh, you will soon find out my friends! 
Until then, remember – strong is the new skinny!  Have a great Easter!

    Woo! You look hot!

    I’ve got two full stripey bags in the boot of my car ready for the same thing!

    4 years ago I was incredibly thin (59kg! not from healthy means, anxiety, not eating, pneumonia, etc), then I put on 18kg, and now I’ve lost 9-10kg of that, so I’m not only getting rid of my fat clothes, but bringing up heaps of my skinny clothes.

    Even though I’m still a fair few kgs off what I used to weigh, I think in measurements I’m pretty close to what I was, as most of my skinny clothes are really close to fitting!! So exciting!

    The best thing was when I found my old designer jeans, to find they fit perfectly. Wooooooo. I forgot all about them! Now they’re starting to get too big! Oops! 😀

    Hi Amazing Tummy, testament to awesomeness! Love the idea I did the same a few weeks ago. It was actually very good to get back the emotional stuff too. Clutter isn’t that good for you and it did clear my head.
    go girl!

    You are looking fabulous! Have a great break xx

    Awesome idea to donate to charity -must feel so good to shed all that excess clothing baggage!
    Oh and the other great thing about losing x amount of weight, is starting to choose clothes that you actually LIKE and are your style, as opposed to ones that just ‘flatter’ or ‘hide’ you. Greatest sensation ever!

    • Amanda April 25, 2011 at 2:22 pm #

      Katey – you are SO right! It’s so much easier to find clothes now. And fun! 😉

      And to everyone else, thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement! You are my rocks! 😀 xxx
