Feeling good

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

I want to thank everyone for their responses and kudos yesterday. I feel now that my week in Michigan, out of my comfort zone, does NOT have to be a diet-breaker. I will follow much of the advice: take a cooler, take recipes that I can cook for the inlaws, write up cards, NOT be apologetic for and speak up for what I need to do.

Yesterday at my new low I tried on some things from "the other closet" and I actually retired a pair of flapping brown pants for a pair that is a size smaller from .... "the other closet!" Slowly but surely things are being moved out of the main closet into the space reserved for the resale shop or Salvation Army. Slowly but surely things are moving out of the "other closet" and into the main closet.

It's all good!

DREADmill time, will catch up with y'all later.

    I too have the "other closet". Maybe I should go shopping and see what might work for me.

    I have one sleeveless shirt that I just love... But it was a little tight at the buttons in front and my arms looked BIG. But I love the shirt. It's sassy.

    I hung the shirt on the wall in front of my treadmill. It really does work for me. Motivates me.

    If I lived alone, I would hang something on the refrigerator door that I had to move each time I needed to open the door. Boy what a reminder that would be!! But I have not YET gone that far.

    Way to go for you Travelgrrl. You certainly have a full plate but you have gotten so many good ideas from others that I really can't add anything other than to just stay focused.

    You have a plan so just stay with it. TC is going to need you strong and in his corner through this trying time but you can do it.

    Lean on all your friends here in Sparkland whenever you just need to vent or to draw on the strength you find out here!
