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!?

I have done well. :-)
Working out each day, making sure I do SOMETHING active-even if it is just some pushups, crunches, punches, and kicks at 1 am before I go to bed on a particularly busy day!
Off to run on treadmill for 45 mins before my meeting at 4 pm. always a time crunch. :-/ But I LOVE how I feel after a workout. I am getting my body back! One workout at a time!

Well, My status today was about how i had to remind myself that it IS possible for me to reach my weight loss goals.
And, for some of you, this may never be an issue.
But for me, I woke up this morning feeling like all the calories I've counted, all the miles I've run, all the times I've said NO when i wanted to say yes... meant nothing.
Because as far as I am concerned, I am still fat. Yes the dreaded F word. The word that makes me cringe when I THINK others THINK it about me.
I started thinking about how all the people who are meeting me for the first time see me as a big girl. My old friends at least know I was small and in shape at one point. But these new people, they'll never believe I've run TWO marathons, TWO half marathons, and LOTS of other races.
I mean, shoot I barely believe it myself when I see what the scale tells me every single morning.
I don't like to feel like this. I don't like thinking what I'm doing is not working. But, I do realize that at this moment all I can do, is keep doing the right thing. and PRAY my body remembers what it used to be. How it used to feel slipping into my 8's and prancing around like I was on top of the world. No longer caring what others think.
But until then, I'll just strap on my running shoes and keep running until I remember.
