My Closet, My Department Store

Monday, October 21, 2013

My closet is fun when I get into it now and then (usually when I am confident about losing pounds, which sadly isn't often!). Like a department store, it is full of quite an array of sizes (all in my favorite colors and styles). I tried on what attracted my attention. Some fit well, some are a tad too tight and trying them on gives me incentive to lose a few pounds. Others are way small; they will only fit when I reach my lowest goal weight. I have my eye on a very pretty purple skirt and top that would be perfect for December parties if I just shave off 3-4 pounds by then. It fits now except the waistband of the skirt is dangerously tight, so tight the button might pop if I eat something. I also have beautiful long-sleeved running shirts that show a bit of spare tire now; it would be so cool to wear them on the treadmill when I present a better silhouette. For now, it is tee shirts only but trying on the running shirts makes me feel good. Ever notice that when they say small, medium, large, and extra large on running clothes they are much stricter than other types of clothing? Even the caps sold in running stores are smaller than others! (I miss my Camo team; can't get on the page for some unknown reason. But I am “posting” on my computer document offline. I am computer hopeless!)

    I don't have a wide range of sizes but I love being able to fit into something that I couldn't before.

    My closet is the same way, there are some clothes that are getting close to being needed to be removed. There are some that I need to lose a couple more inches and they would fit, so they are my motivation. I try them on once a month just to see where I have come in a month. I look forward to going on a shopping spree for new clothes. Keep up the good work and you will lose those 3-4 pounds by December.

    Your closet sounds like a wealth of motivation! I too noticed that work out clothing is more true to size/strict on size than other types, it can be discouraging.

    Hope you're able to make your way back to Camo soon. If you can still check your sparkmail, I can post challenge info into messages for you. If there's anything else I can do, to help you feel more connected to the team, please let me know! emoticon
