Spring Cleaning....Cleaning out my closet!!!

Friday, April 09, 2010

I spent part of Monday afternoon and last night cleaning out my closets. I went through and tried on each and every article of clothing to make sure that it fit properly and if it didn't I put it to the side!! I'm proud to say that I have weeded out quite a few clothes. Many of them are still wearable and I plan to donate them. I'm passing some of them on to my mother and I asked my godsister if she wanted some. I have a brand new dress with tags that I bought last August for a wedding, but didn't wear...and it didn't touch me anywhere...I didn't have to unzip it to put it on lol....

Some of the clothes were just old...I was a size 18 for at least the last 12-13 years (since I was 14-15) and even though I've tossed clothes here and there over the years....some things are hard to let go. My mother is bent on altering a few items that she feels are too nice to get rid of lol. I also got rid of some shoes. If I'd known that losing weight would have felt this good...I'd have done it years ago.... emoticon

Yaaay for Sparkpeople!!!! emoticon

    This is exactly where I was last night! I haven't lost so much that I can't wear things yet...but 20 is definitely too big! I'm seriously considering altering 3 articles right now (cheaper than buying new). Although I LOVE not fitting into clothes from a different aspect other than busting out of them...I hate shopping so it's not something I'm 100% happy with (maybe 99%)
Congrats on your success!

Pants on the Ground!!! Hurray!!!!

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Hurray for pants on the ground!!! Nahhh, not the song...MY PANTS emoticon!!! Today, I wore a pair of pants to work...and I kept having to pull them up...they were dragging the ground. They're too large now, so they kept going up under my shoes!! I had to wear them pulled way up. Once we go on Spring Break this week, I'm updating my wardrobe...putting away the much too large winter clothes and sliding into some new spring outfits. Yaaaay!!!!

Spring = Motivation

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I've gotten so lax on my on me emoticon , but I feel like with the change in seasons...I'm going to do so much more. Walking was my number one exercise and then it got to the point where it was too dark to walk by the time I got home from work. I started doing workout DVDs, but my bedroom is so cramped, I hardly had room to move around. With my father recovering from his stroke and my parents moving in with me, that took away some of my already small living space...and exercise is now just a memory. But longer evenings = brisk walks and no worries of getting hit or being tooo chilly. I have 7 more pounds until I reach my goal. I hope to be there by mid-April and then down hopefully another 10 by my birthday at the end of May and maybe even another 5 by the time school is out on June 10!!!!! That would be so wonderful! Ahhh spring!!!

Happy Friday everyone!!!!! I FEEL GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, March 19, 2010

I feel so great today....which is strange because I worked 12 hours yesterday...and I lost my debit card @ Wal-Mart...I cancelled it when I realized it was missing. They had found it though!! Anyway, I woke up running to work late...and thought my rough yesterday was going to continue into today. It didn't though...I feel great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

On Fridays, we can dress casually. All of my dress clothes are falling off of me...they're more expensive(not expensive...but just more so than my casual clothes lol) and I want to wait until I get to a weight and size where I'm satisfied before I run out and buy those. Plus, with the change in's sorta hard to find winter clothes...and the last couple of weeks have been quite cold despite it being almost spring. I have gotten so many compliments today on what I have lady told me I looked as if I were down to a 10!!!! WOW!!!! I wish!!! But that made me feel great. I have the windows open, it's nice outside, and I feel GREAT!!!! emoticon

My Goal is in Sight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (SN: Lady who wants to be world's fattest!?!?!?)

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I'm only 7 pounds away from my original goal weight. Of course, along the way, I have decided that I want to go beyond that goal, but hopefully, by my 27th birthday, I will be at least 47 pounds lighter. emoticon One thing that I have realized is that it doesn't take a whole lot to fill me up like I used to think. I guess that was a result of being "supersized". I have learned that I can go to McDonalds and get the 4 pc McNugget and a small fry...and not be hungry when I'm done. emoticon I was so used to getting that 10 pc and large fry that I didn't know any different...and of course, when I scarf it down in a matter of minutes, my body didn't have enough time to let me know that I was full, so I thought that was what I needed. Thank goodness SparkPeople has taught me portion control!!!!

Did anyone else see the article online about the woman that wants to be the world's fattest woman...she weighs like 600 pounds (43 stone--she's from the UK) and she wants to weigh 1000...she already has the record for world's fattest mom or something because of how large she was when she gave birth. She eats 12,000 calories a day. It is totally ridiculous...her poor child is going to have to grow up without a mom after she dies from heart failure emoticon it's really a crazy story.

    The fattest woman deal is really sad for the child(ren). I don't feel sorry for this woman's ridiculous goal. Is that really news? emoticon

    As cruel as it sounds. I cannot wait until she dies. She has no right to be alive.

But on a lighter note...Congrats on your success! And happy early birthday!
