I did a scary thing today: I got rid all of my clothes that are too big for me. Over the past five years, I've accumulated pants, shirts, and skirts in sizes ranging from 4 to 24. Whenever I put on a couple of pounds, I could ignore it by just grabbing a looser pair of jeans from the bottom of the pile. But this time, I'm not only committed to losing the weight, but keeping it off. So I'm donating or tossing everything that’s baggy on me. Now, if my current trousers ever become too tight, I know I have to do something—fast. The bonus: I have room in my closet for the new wardrobe I'll be able to buy once I hit my goal!
