I've been busy. Finally completed all the decluttering/sorting/packing/c
leaning tasks and got the entire house staged. One one hour open house and one 20 minute private showing later, and bah da bing, we have a buyer.
So there's been a flurry of activity to find a new house, get inspections, have loads of electricians, plumbers, asbestos specialists, and the like tromping through the house giving us estimates, etc. It's been an overwhelming amount of work, and it could still all fall apart because we have buyers insisting that we do a $1000 repair that 5 plumbers have told us does NOT need to be done.
But all that aside, what a month June was result-wise!
Just in June, I am down another 8.2 lbs, for a total so far of 33, over 16 weeks. Just a drop in the bucket, but hey, it’s a start. And I’m making progress. All good.
I also lost another 6.75 inches across 5 measuring points, for a total of 18.25 inches since I began this excellent adventure.
It goes without saying that my summer clothes are not flattering because they are baggy baggy baggy and look like clown pants. I do have smaller tops I’ve switched down to, so at least the top half isn’t as ridonkulous looking. But hey, I am not complaining about the clown pants! At least I haz britches to wear that will, at the moment, still stay up!
I am looking forward to new wardrobes in the new city. I tossed out all the winter clothes as they were way too big already by the time I was packing up, so this fall I get RETAIL therapy! Woot woot! And soon it will be time to replace the smallest jeans I have (that I just bought 2 months ago) with yet another size smaller…YAY.
So, whatever your goals, you can do them! One baby step at a time. It all adds up.
In the past, I wanted to do it all overnight. I would of course get frustrated, and let the whole thing fall apart. But slow and easy makes the journey way more relaxing and doable. And even fun.
The strange thing was stepping on the scale this morning (regular Friday morning weigh in) and seeing that the scale has shifted down another 3 pounds just this week! And I'm not doing anything special, NOR am I on a diet. This thing really works!
I am only 2.5 pounds away from the point I've reached 3 times in the past 7 years and then always ricocheted back up. It is also my lowest weight in more than 20 years. So once I get past that particular number, it will all be brand new territory!
And the fact that there simply is no struggle.....how wonderful!!!!
