And the Journey Continues......

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

I spent the majority of this past week looking at my closet. Just staring into space sort of and not really seeing it. I lost a pound this week; however it was a pound I had gained last week so I consider it being even. I have been kind of stuck on this weigh in for a couple of weeks. So instead of having a fit (like I did) and threatening to go have a cheesy hotdog; I made myself go into my closet. I made myself look at all the clothes that were on the floor (during the week I dont give myself a lot of time) Nothing fit....So then I turned to other clothes that I had tucked away for months and years....All this week I have been wearing skirts and dresses that I could not even get past my behind a copule of months ago. This morning I made myself put away my clothes that had been piling up on the floor and the dresser. And then, let me tell you, if I dont go out and get new bras soon I might as well just throw some socks in my present bras. There is not a whole lot to feel up the cups anymore! I put on a necklace that matched a dress that I had not worn ( I bought it a couple of years ago) thinking it wouldnt fit (fat neck syndrome) Guess what! It fit just fine!

So I might have lost a pound that seems to like me ALOT and comes back each week; but the fact remains that my body is so totally different these days. I will just keep trudging along and maybe that pound will find another place to hang and I can continue on without it! It is a good day.

    You're doing great Lavendergirll! AS so many others have said before me, the scale doesn't tell you everything! Stay happy and healthy!

    Good for you! The scale is NOT always the best measurement, especially when you've been at it awhile. Inches show when the scale doesn't.

Doesn't it feel great to have cleaned out your closet? I hope you gave away some clothes that are now too big for you.

When you get brave enough to get new bras, get measured in the store. You will be amazed how good you will feel with a new bra! Get going girl!

    Great blog and a great way of looking at things! Thanks for reminding me that sometimes you just need to take a step back and reassess just how far you have come!

    What a great post Pris!!!

Great and hilarious, too. Your unintentional typo referring to the socks having to FEEL you up had me rolling in the floor!!!

I am so impressed about you turning what could have been a terrible decision (eating a cheesy hotdog) into a very smart. It was such a great move to go to your closet and really reassess where you are. It must have been so exciting to see how much you had misjudged your progress.

I am so very happy for you and can't wait to hear how well you do this coming week! I bet you hit it out of the park.

Good luck!

    Sounds like a good plan and a pound at a time will get you there too!
