juice fast day 15

Thursday, May 09, 2013

I can't believe that I am telling you this... not a very nice visual, but last week I was home alone and was wearing one of my pants that I knew that I no longer fit but hey, I am alone and I didn't have anything else clean. They just fell off as I was going up the steps. I had my hands full, so I wasn't able to catch them. One of those Youtube moments. I just stepped out of them and once getting my arms emptied went back and tossed the pants in the trash.

LOL, sorry, this just brought to mind a story about my grandmother whose elastic broke on her panties while shopping (those were the days when women only wore dresses) and she nonchalantly stepped out of them, continued to shop, leaving her panties right there in the aisle. I guess I take after her in more ways than in looks. I bet the panties got some strange looks until someone got rid of them.

So I guess I could become deep and say that the old pants represent the shedding of my old self. hmmm, I like that. The pants were more than tacky. To tell the truth, the old self was a bit tacky also. I am liking the new me underneath. I wonder what the new layer of me underneath this layer is like. I am sure I will love her.

stay strong

    I love the comparison of "shedding your old self"!! What a moment of inspiration.
    Thanks for stopping by on my blog. To answer your question, yes, I am juicing 1 -2 meals per day. I'm scared to commit to a "fast" cooking for hubby I know I would be setting myself up to fail, I started on March 1st and have lost 25 pounds, so for now, I'm happy with juicing "my way".
    We are all choosing to put ourselves on our own list - and winning in the process.
    Congrats to you!

    Way to go on your weight loss !!! LOL, when I was a teen my mom made all my clothes from scratch. The elastic wore out in my pants and they fell off me at school. I was sooo embarrassed. It's great that the juice fast is working.

    Now that was funny!! I could just picture your Grandma casually going on here way and leaving her panties behind! emoticon I was just thinking yesterday when I was wearing a pair of cotton sweat pants (how big would I really have to be to actually fit into these and why am I wearing them?) I was complaining the other day that nobody has noticed that I have lost weight..... well who would notice with all of that extra fabric I am carrying around. I do have one new pair of yoga pants that actually fit and I think I look pretty good in them. Why can't I get rid of all of those clothes that are just too big? We do crazy things!! emoticon emoticon
