Closet cleaning

Monday, August 27, 2007

I cleaned out my closet before going to Italy - I had a huge pile of clothes for another teacher at school, some things will fit, some will be too small but then we'll pass them along to a third and even fourth teacher.

Yesterday, I went through the closet again (since I'm down another size) and ended up with a big suitcase of clothes to pass along to the same group of teachers.

It is SO empowering to know that I have done this - lost 40 lbs, and 3 clothing sizes. Maybe 4. I got rid of 2X tops. 3X tops. Even 1X pants. All clothes that used to look so cute on me, and now look like clown clothes. Even a series of XL pants that used to fit nicely, and now hang.

EVEN the 18W pants that I was so excited to fit into in March or so - they're so big, I don't need to unbutton or unzip them to get in/out of them. The hips bag out on their own, they are so oversized.

YAY for losing weight, toning muscle, and getting littler!!!!!!!!!!!!

My new goal is to need an entirely new wardrobe by June. I'm now a 16 to 16W. I plan to be in a 10 or 12 by the end of the school year.

You heard it here first.

    On to a littler you my dear!

    Reminds me, I need to try on my suit for next week's meeting and make sure it fits. For better or worse I have suits 4-16 so one of them is bound to fit!

    Oh yeah, the "they must be stretched out" syndrome. I brought pants to Italy, and by the end of the ttrip, they were hanging. Looked horrible. I was embarrassed to be wearing them. They are the pants that prompted the closet cleaning.

    That's awesome Phebe! Do you find that you are surprised at each milestone? I still think "wait a minute. . . these pants are LOOSE? really?!" I keep trying to convince myself that they must have grown! There is no way I'm truly shrinking!
