The opening picture is a scanned copy of a Card that I received in the mail from a good friend — she pegged my emotions SPOT ON with that card–even though I can’t even eat greens yet! 🙂 I just had to share it.
Well — its 11 am Thursday — so I guess I told the truth. Only, I had a meeting at the school for my youngest son — so — this drug out much longer than planned. I did manage to get my walk in today and will probably do some other activity later, but for now, I am very happy with the walk. 🙂
So … Let’s get back to Today’s topic — “THE FASHION SHOW.”
What can I say? Yesterday went a tad haywire, more so than I had expected. I am not exactly sure what I thought would take place when I started my “purge;” I got so caught up in what I was doing that I forgot a few important steps to my morning routine that further threw my day ajar. I had NO idea it would take so long to go through my clothes, nor did I have any idea that this purging exercise would completely wipe me out. I had to take a break before I could finish the exercise; finally, there was no energy to take photos yesterday or attend my Dance lessons (I had to have them rescheduled to Friday). I had more to give away than I anticipated, which was a lovely surprise. I also had an epiphany … but more on that after the “Fashion Show” …..
The trash pile was small and barely worthy of note — so on with the Show:
The give away pile.
You would be surprised how painful it is to stand with your arm in your pants. So forgive me if I poked my gut out! These pants were from when I weighed 275 or so–I refused to step on scales at that time. I kept them; thankfully, even with my latest bounce back, I didn’t make it into these beauties!
This shirt is also from that time period.
Loretta, do you remember this shirt? My arms are still quite large — but DANG — Now, I can put two arms in each hole! The nice white pants don’t work anymore either.
The white pants fit pretty much like these pants. They were my favorite summer pants — wore them to NYC with Collin when he played Carniage Hall last year. 😦 🙂
Oh, well … this is a GOOD CHANGE!
I know you hate for me to stop … but this is the last of the show.
It was good to look and see that things are working. It was good for me to take a moment, and mark in time how far I have come. It helps. I don’t feel so whimpy anymore. 🙂 Mike was just doing his “Math Thing” and mentioned that I had lost this 28 pounds in a month and a half. I had an epifany … a lightening bolt from heaven moment … maybe this time would be different! Why? Well, I lost THREE pounds more than I bounced back in TWO WEEKS less time than I gained. This is the first time that has ever happened before. I do mean NEVER! I have gained 10 pounds in a month. I have gained 30 pounds in one month, but I have NEVER lost as quickly as I have gained.
Maybe …… just maybe, this time really will be different. 🙂
