As I sat here watching the rain, I thought I had to do something productive. So on my list of things to get done was clean out a closet. This has been on my To Do list for 2 years! So not excuses, I went to the back bedroom closet and there were a bunch of old "skinny" clothes staring back at me. Do you have one of these? A closet full of clothes with hopes that someday you will get back into them? I had dresses, blazers, jeans, pants, jackets..... all from 10 - 15 years ago when I was in Size 14's. Some still had the tags left on them.... too tight when I bought them. You know.... I'll lose a few pounds and get into these.. yeah right!
So, thinking that I wouldn't have to go shopping for smaller clothes for a while, I started trying them on. And trying them on. And trying them on. My smile got bigger, and Bigger and BIGGER as the Goodwill pile got bigger, and Bigger and BIGGER!!! I ended up with 2 Petite Blazers, a jacket and one pair of jeans. The rest were Too BIG!
I have been in a bit of a funk lately and just couldn't seem to snap out of it. I think my Skinny Angel was watching over me today and decided to sprinkle some "Happy" and "Motivate" dust on me. This has been one of the best Non-Scale Victories I have had so far!
What are some of your NSV's? Let's Celebrate!
