- Be mentally and emotionally prepared, because trying on clothes - especially clothes that once fit can be a tedious process.
- Be prepared to make a mess and have many piles ('give away', 'garage sale', 'keep' etc).
- If you have some dresses that are simply too fabulous to get rid of, keep them. But, get them out of your closet!
- Just because it zips doesn't mean it fits. So, if you can technically button up that dress, but it is so tight it just reminds you of how skinny you used to be... pack it up. It's not worth the headache.
