Non Scale Victory I Never Expected

Monday, April 08, 2013

Woo Woo. There's actually a post I've been meaning to write ... and I'll get to it sometime this week - but I just had to post about a surprise NSV I got yesterday.

Shoes! My shoes! My (slightly high) platform wedgies that should have fit so well but that I have never worn because they don't - they hurt my feet and legs - don't! All this fitness and strength training I've been doing coupled with carrying around less weight overall made these cute shoes not just fit but feel great!

I'm wearing them today.

Warm weather is here at last after the longest coldest spring I can remember. Yesterday afternoon I had a few hours alone and I pulled out the two big tubs of summer clothes and went shopping. I tried on tops and skirts and dresses and shorts. I tried this with that and that with this. I tried belts and jewelry and shoes and that's when I discovered that shoes I used to think about wearing but did not - because they made my feet hurt or my knees - didn't do that any more. My strong legs and good balance and toned muscles keep it all together and those shoes are just fine.

and there is another Big Pile of things to give to the Goodwill. Only one thing is just perfect for my cousin - it's really more her sort of red than mine. She's cherry red. I'm tomato.

And I sat down with Himself and pointed out that we own clothes we never wear. Anything we think we like gets 12 more months and if we don't wear it by then - out it goes - no matter now nice it is. This is a no loitering closet.

Happy Monday to you all! May you have a NSV this week.
