    All my tons of pants and jeans are way to big...Over the last 18 months, my legs butt and hips got bigger and muscular.....the waist got tighter and much smaller.

    Ironic question....Would you keep the old clothes just in case you get bigger again? Or would you get rid of them and donate them to somebody?

    get rid of them, it will make it all to easy to lapse and then have clothes ready and waiting.

    I would get rid of them. You will have more incentive to maintain your physique when the alternative is to buy new clothes in sizes you don't truly want.

    I've still got the clothes from when I was fat, even though I sincerely hope that I'll never be a 40 waist again.

    I just stock them at my parents except for the t-shirts that I use as sleep shirts.

    I just gathered up a bunch of clothes last night to donate. Mostly too big in the waist. Keep a few pairs of pants as a safety net just in case I pack it back on again.

    Donating would probably be best, but yeah I'd keep at least one pair just in case. That's what I'll do.

    It was so nice recently shopping for jeans and buying ones with a waist 3 inches smaller than when I did my back to school shopping last year...

    I love losing weight, haha.

    Went through this same thing, had several new pairs of dress slacks (size 36) wore about 3 times and then lost weight and ended up between a 32 and 33 waist. I could swim in the slacks. I kept them for 6 months or so but when I moved out on my own, I put them in bags and donated them to Goodwill and now I have a tax deduction. Not quite the price I paid but someone will benefit from my weight loss . Out with the old and in with the new. Still buying new too, takes a while to replace that stuff.

    I kind of like the idea of keeping one pair, just to remind you of your accomplishment. The rest I would donate.

    Sounds egotistical, but dress in your new clothes and stand in front of the mirror. You've worked hard for your new look, encourage yourself to see you as this new person. Its fantastic. Congrats on all the efforts there.

    Ok... let me ask you a silly question


    WHY on earth would you want to Keep a set of clothes you wore when you were FAT???

    You Need a concrete reason to possible gain weight in the future???
    Aren't you supposed to make it MORE difficult to lose the positive gains you've done for yourself?
    Get RID of the clothes today
    Buy a whole new set of clothes ... this IS ONE of the reasons we lose weight in the first place to look better in clothes ... well.. and out of them too

    You may go back in the other direction too. A few months I was a medium. Now, a medium is as tight as sausage casing. So, you have lost fat, great! But put on enough muscle and you will be back to your old size ripped.
