OK, so I'm gonna be quick.
I am actually sorting clothes and beginning my packing to move journey. I'll start with my INTERESTING RESULTS... I found my weight loss journal/scrapbook in an attempt to take my measurements and make sure I had a STRONG reference point for this journey.
I found the measurements from a YEAR AGO. They are as such, I have gained 8 lbs since then. BUT I have a total of MINUS 0.5 inches. So, I'm thinking though I gained weight overall some of it must be muscle. ALSO, and :::warning TMI, men, close your eyes/ears LOL::: my bust has grown THREE SOLID inches. What in the WORLD is happening. [NO birth control and NO pregnancy.... just big boobs all of a sudden] lol. And everywhere else lost inches or at least some centimeters. :-D
Bust in 2010: 36 inches
rib cage below bust 31 inches (2010) .
Bust in 2011:39 INCHES!?!?!?!? [ i triple checked]
rib cage below bust: STILL 31 inches
Went from 34C----34 D that's tight.
Now I know that was TMI... but I wanted to explain because I that means if I hadn't had the breast growth I would have had a higher net loss of inches.
Either way, for a year of turmoil and stress... the NET + 8 lbs and -.5 inch isn't that bad. and I'm happy to know where I am so I can go where I'm headed with a CLEAR PLAN.
My closet clean out plan. I'm currently wearing size 10 pants, size 8 dresses, medium/large shirts. I used to be in size 8 pants.
So I'm keeping 10 size 8 pants and 4 size 6's. That means I will be giving away almost 30 pairs of jeans. OR MORE. But I think of how more useful they will be ON someone's body versus in a bin in my closet. and I'm NOT taking all this baggage to my new house.
Any tips for where to take the clothes? I'm going to give a lot away to charity but I have a LOT to get rid of... and a little money before a move never hurts... IDEAS!?
