Day three

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Today I go to see a new pain MD. I am hoping that he will agree to take me as a patient and that he will be willing to help me meet my pain management needs and goals. That makes two MD visits in two days. I am really feeling wiped out...not at all like showering and getting dressed and taking the hour long ride to the MD. The only good part about it is that my dad is driving me. I love spending time with him. He is my superhero.

So this marks day three of my Eat to Live plan. I weighed myself yesterday and I weighed the low number of the five pounds I've been shedding and regaining. If I can break through this lousy five pound plateau and go on to a lower number, I will be so happy. I have 22 lbs to go to get back to Onederland where I was at last December when I did the Eat to Live plan. I really need to do some self brain washing to make myself understand that this is NOT a temporary diet. This has to be a long term manner of eating. Women on this plan typically get down to 105-110 lbs. He promises that once you reach your body's ideal weight, the weight loss will automatically cease.

That brings me to my next question. In my basement, I have clothes from size 18-size 8. My plan for this week was to donate or pitch all my clothes smaller than a size 12...because I was feeling like I would never weigh that little again. But the truth is, if I can stay on track, I will likely be able to get back into a size 5 or smaller. Do I keep those clothes? Maybe I should put all the small clothes into my trunk and a big plastic bin I have downstairs. That way I will clear some space on my clothes rack and yet still keep those clothes. However if I do get down to that size, it will be so much fun to shop for my new skinny body. The clothes that I have of that size are outdated and probably not in the best shape. Maybe I will only keep a select few.

Sorry for my musing. I'm sure you don't care what I do with my clothes.
Have a great and Sparkling day!

    Hope things go well with the new doc.

    I had a few old suits and things I had saved. I tried on an old work suit and it fit, but had these HUGE 80's shoulder pads! It was hilarious! Looked like something out of a sci-fi movie. And a pair of jeans I had saved were actually ill-fitting and too loose.

    A long time ago I got rid of my skinnier clothes that I could probably fit into now. But that's ok because I love thrift store shopping, especially since I want to still lose weight. After losing 21 lbs I have been stuck for months and have not lost anymore, but I am still ok with that.

    Since your thinner clothes are outdated, I personally would get rid of them and then have fun shopping - you will have deserved it!!

    I hope this new pain Dr. can help you!!
    Interesting, but while shopping around at Value Village, I absolutely fell in love with this shirt that was the same style but a different color as one I loved 20 years ago -it was in mint condition, but she reminded me it would be difficult to get on and likely too small anyway.
    I agree with Karen in that you should cull the clothing and pick out any you like, save them and donate the rest. I have always loved the clothing you wear in your photos, it is timeless and classy. I have read its a mistake to keep the smallest clothes you wore as a young woman because it may be unrealistic to think you could fit in them again as our bodies change with age. To keep trying may set you up for disappointment and depression from failing. But it can also be motivating if there is an outfit in there you really loved and want to wear again. You have to do whatever feels right to you..

    I love going through my clothes from time to time. You can do that and just pick out and save the ones that you really think you'd wear again and get rid of the ones that look outdated or you never cared for anyway!! Take one of your favorites out of the stash and hang it up, where you can see it every day. Now that's some incentive for you!! I do that, but I also know that I'm going to have to put up something else instead of what I've had hanging there so long, because it's like I don't even notice it anymore! So I'll hang something up that really catches my eye! Over time, with all the 2nd hand shopping I love to do, I pick up things that are too small and so darling. They can really be attractive!
