Today’s meeting was about cleaning out your home so that it helps you with your journey. Keeping healthy choices in your kitchen – not eating food (or keeping) food in your bedroom but also about cleaning out your clothes. As we lose weight things obviously no longer fit. Our leader asked us if any of us still had clothes that don’t fit (as in too large) in our closets. I know I’m guilty of that.
We need to not keep those clothes anymore – we hope (and work hard) to not get back to that point where we need them. Goodwill Industries and consignment shops are the perfect solution. Let others benefit from your healthy choices and weight loss. So on this perfect fall weekend go ahead and clean out your closet of clothes that no longer fit – donate them so someone else can benefit.
Another benefit of consignment shops and Goodwill is an option for that transitional period everyone goes through on their weight loss journey. If you haven’t reached your goal yet but have lost enough that clothes aren’t fitting correctly, stop at Goodwill or consignment shops to pickup some clothes that fit now without paying full price.
While you are at it clean out your pantry as well. Weight Watchers is still collecting 1 lb of food for every pound you lose as part of their Lose for Good program. So if you’ve held onto any food you aren’t using why not let someone who is less fortunate benefit as well getting rid of that tempting item from your pantry.
Fall is the perfect time for cleaning out closets, pantries and all the other baggage we have that may slow down our weight loss journey. So take a few moments and do some good for yourself (it can count as activity points as well as getting rid of things that no longer fit or you no longer eat) as well as someone else.
