Closer than I think...

Saturday, April 20, 2013


I spent today decluttering and organizing my clothes and I realized something. Not only will I have an AMAZING wardrobe as I lose weight, I am not that far from being able to fit at least 70% of the clothes in my closet and being extra stylish.

I feel like I've completely let myself go, despite working out hard and eating better. BUT, I realized most of my clothes are only a 1/2 size too small. I bet a solid 10 pound lost could get me back into most of them comfortably.. And because I have sizes 6,8,10's I can look stylish all along my weight loss journey. (That's my positive spin on it.)

I'm giving away a lot of clothes and trying to move away the ones that don't fit now. Like I'll put ALL of the 6's and 8's in some boxes and revisit them in 15-20 pounds or when the 10's get too big. If I don't get to them within the next few months, I'll give them away.

I can bless someone else with them.

All the clothes that are from high school (I STILL have some, that look cute and fit somehow Lol) will be given away no matter what. I'm on a mission to de-clutter, de-stres and simplify things.)

So moral of the story is: There's no reason for me to give up or feel overwhelmed. I have NOT fallen that far from glory. LOL. and... as long as I get the pounds moving in the NEGATIVE direction... I'll have some cute clothes to wear. I can go shopping in my closet!

And, since I've been doing this ALL day... I'm sure I've burned some calories.

Ok, back to business.
Later guys!

    i just did the same thing. Looked for ideas online on how to declutter my closet. One idea was to hang all the hangers one way and then as you wear each item, wash it and hang it again, put it back hanging in the opposite direction. After 6 month or a years time, what is still hanging backwards on the clothes rod, toss out to good will or give away to friends. You aren't going to wear it if you haven't worn it in that length of time. (unless of course, those are the clothes you are working towards fitting into) I like the feeling I get from reorganizing and cleaning out closets, even though it's a chore that nobody else sees you've done.
