I seem to be in a holding pattern with loosing weight. But thats okay! As long as I do not gain any I am fine with that. I had to put exercise on hold this week as I fell and bruised my hip and backside pretty badly. I had gotton into a habit of stretching and was beginning to see the benifits. Slow and steady is my motto! I plan to return to the YMCA this month and get into the water. This is my next step in being more active.
This week I purged my closet. A friend told me that it is important not to hang on to my "too big" clothes. So I purged! I do have a photo but did not get it downloaded. 3 large trash bags of size 18, 16,14, and 12! I reached my goal of size 10! Its not a perfect fit yet but good enough to say I wear a size 10 again. I have not seen a size 10 since 1986.
I was so blessed this week to catch a sale at KMart. I usually do not shop KMart but went there to get underwear...( they always have low prices on them) and noticed a huge sale on pants, shoes, and tops. I got paid to dog sit this week so I actually have cash! I found pants for $4.20each! Tops as low as $1.75. Shoes for $5! I was able to replace the pants I had to purge! The rest of my needed clothes items I have found at our church clothing closet. Its a bit scary to not have my comfy clothes.
