With a little apprehension I tackled something this weekend that needed to be done….
It was time to go through the closet. I am really tired of tugging on my jeans throughout the day. I know it is time to downsize – the pant size that is.
I was pretty sure that I could do a little closet shopping for smaller sizes, but I hadn’t taken the time to explore. The majority of the clothes in my closet were things I had not worn in years. So one by one I started to try them on.
Guess what?!? Almost everything smaller fit. The picture above is the pile of clothes that I discarded in my quest for pants that did not have to be tugged on throughout the day. At the end of it, I only had 2 pairs of shorts and 3 pairs of pants that were slightly too tight to wear yet.
Everything else fits!!!!
That means when I keep losing I will really need to go shopping!
I do know that it felt so good to pull on so many things today that actually fit and were not too tight. It’s funny how sizes are so different. I got rid of all of the size 26’s and most 24’s. Most 20’s and 22’s fit but a couple of 24’s weren’t too loose.
This was something I had never done. I have never gotten rid of the clothes that were too big. Today I did.
I’M NEVER GOING BACK!!!!
At least now I don’t have to worry about shopping for a bunch of clothes before our vacation. I just need a couple of things to get through this size/stage.
Now on to catching up on weigh in’s. I hope to get back to regular posting this week. I have been sick, traveling and altogether too busy. So all of my good intentions have just not happened.
I will be honest, exercise and eating well come before checking in here.
So I have 2 weeks to catch up on. After a small loss 3 weeks ago of .6 pounds, I pulled off a 3.4 pound loss the following week.
Then, I traveled to Dallas for a weekend conference filled with free food and social events. And I still lost another 1.2 pounds.
So that is 4.6 more down since my last weigh in post.
I have been sick almost the entire time. So the exercise department has been a little hit or miss. I think I keep going back too soon and then I end up feeling worse for a couple of days after.
The upside is I exercised 2 of the 3 days I traveled and 1 of the days Mike was gone. It really would have been more if I hadn’t been sick. I had to talk myself into not exercising to let my body recuperate.
Now getting back to a normal week, but I am still sick. I am planning to give myself another easier exercise week which means I really have to watch the food.
