No Turning Back

Monday, November 01, 2010

This weekend, I should have been finishing the yard, but I didn't. The weather was gorgeous and I should have been outside. Okay, so I let the Rangers schedule influence my decisions for the weekend. I cleaned inside, well to a point. I didn't make any extra effort, but the thing that I did do -----

Threw out ALL of my old/new baggy clothes. If it's a size 12 or up, it's gone. Even a dress I've worn once but bought last year (I think a 14), all are out of my house. There is no turning back. I refuse to buy anything bigger than a 10 and preferably stay in the 8 range. I will not let myself get to that point ever again. The benefits outweigh everything. Just the reduction in knee pain.

I'm still frustrated because I haven't lost since July, but.... it will get there. I have two pairs of pants waiting in the closet to be worn, that and next summer three new pair of shorts that have never been worn because I was always just a couple of pounds away.

November will be my month. I will get over this financially and plateau induced depression and break this plateau. I haven't strayed away from the exercise plan, but I know I haven't pushed it. Now it's time to push it. I've been on this new schedule over a month and my body is slowly adjusting so I'm not going to use the tired excuse any more.

New month, new goals.

    OMG...your blog sounds just like something I would write! I just gave away all of my 14's (last year) and 12's (this year) and a 10 is the largest size I keep in my closest and like you, I want to stay in a size 8 also!

    Congratulations on your weight loss you look great!!!

    Getting rid of old clothes gives one a feeling of new beginnings and of a better future. A job well done.

    Great job in getting rid of all of the too big clothes. That is what you should do. Who wants to gain weight and then have to buy new big clothes? I have done that too.

    I need to get the exercise going for myself. I need to set a schedule and stick to it. I am going to work on that today.

    Congrats!! There is no reason to hang on to bigger clothes. It says that you don't think that your weight loss will stick and that defeats the purpose. Someone else can have your clothes. ;) November will be your month!
