  • It's a Good Idea with Angela Oberer

  • Toss you "fat" clothes Tip #713

  • Hi there, I'm Angela Oberer and you've asked me this question: "When I lose a whole bunch

  • of weight, do I get rid of all of the old clothes that I have in my closet that no longer

  • fit me, or do I hang on to them because they were really expensive and they're super cool?"

  • Aiee, you asked me, and my answer is "Get rid of those clothes."

  • If you are going to all the trouble to create a whole new svelte, skinny, sexy you, why on

  • earth are you hanging on to old clothes that now no longer represent you, they don't fit

  • you, they are going to be baggy and not hang right?

  • Why are you going to hang on to those clothes? Because hopefully if you are creating a new

  • you, the new you is better than the old you. (Screen says: If you keep them, you unconsciously

  • expect to wear them again.) So get rid of the old clothes, get rid of

  • what's in the past. (Photos of Pat Oberer before and after weight loss)

  • I've lost some weight and these clothes no longer fit me.

  • I'm going to take them to the Goodwill so somebody else can use them,

  • because that's a good idea.

  • Get rid of what's behind you.

  • Okay, so they were expensive and you want your money back. Send them to a consignment

  • store. There are lots of stores that sell slightly used clothing or vintage clothing,

  • where you can go and give those clothes to them, and they will pay you once they sell.

  • If it's not about the money and you don't mind just giving them away, give them to friends

  • or family members who think you are super cool and they like your style, and they would

  • like to have those clothes. The other option is you can take a tax deduction

  • by donating them to a place like Goodwill for example.

  • Where they will take those clothes, sell those in their store, and create jobs for other people.

  • So if you have clothes that you're going to get rid of...hang them on the back of the

  • door, and then take a picture of that item of clothing.

  • So that you have an inventory of clothes you've sent to a thrift store or consignment store

  • or whatever. Maybe you just LOVE that outfit. So now you

  • have a picture of it right? You can move forward and keep the picture. It's awesome.

  • Now that you're all super skinny and you're trying a new you out, try out a new fashion.

  • Because that gives you a chance to maybe try something you didn't try before, maybe a new

  • look, maybe something edgy, or whatever. Certainly you don't want to run out and buy the exact

  • same thing that you had before just one size smaller. Ah, don't do that, right?

  • That's not cool. So, get rid of the clothing that you're no

  • longer going to wear, because it will create space in your closet, it will create space

  • in your emotional energy, cause you're not hanging on to old stuff. And you will have

  • burnt that bridge so you are not going back, you're only going forward. So get rid of your

  • clothes because I'm telling you what, that's a good idea.

  • It's a good idea.
