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.
