Putting away winter clothes.....
Saturday, May 07, 2011
I have a love/hate relationship with winter. I really do NOT like cold weather!! Although now that I work for a school, I've learned to appreciate snow days....lol. The thing that I do like about winter is the clothes. At my current weight I like the fact that in the winter I'm not expected to be seen in shorts or sleeveless tops. Today, as I was packing away the winter clothes, I had mixed emotions. You see, I am single and trying to date. I'm almost in a panic that I will need to go somewhere with someone new and feel so big and out of place with all the other women looking sleek and sexy in their shorts, tanktops, swimsuits, etc. BUT, it is what it is!! I'm not going to go into hiding, I'm not going to stop living life, and I'm sure as heck not going to quit. As I was packing away those winter clothes I kept telling myself that when I get them back out in the fall I will be taking them straight to Goodwill because they are going to be too big for me then!!!
With that motivation in the back of my mind I stayed on track with my food and went walking at my favorite spot, a little lake just 2 miles from me. It was a beautiful evening and I love getting out in the fresh air.
