Today was the first of what I hope will be many Happy Goodbyes. I got up and got myself ready for work, however about an hour or so later I realized that the dress pants that I was wearing did not fit properly. The good news, they were too big.
Now I like a bit of room in my clothing and I am not a fan of items that cling, however these pants are now loose in the waist, bottom and legs, The extra room made them hang lower on me so they were actually getting wet when I was walking outside.
I have made a decision that I will not be purchasing any new clothes until I reach my 10% target which is fine because I have many items in many sizes to get me through until then.
These particular pair of pants however are going to be retired. I have made a commitment that I am not going to hang on to the clothing that is too big for me, I don't want that crutch in the house allowing me to go back to the way that things were.
While I am never one to want to go give up clothing I am definitely happy for this goodbye.
Today was crazy, I was running out the door this am and could only grab fruit for breakfast. I felt that this had a negative impact on my day and I was starving by the time that I popped into the grocery store at 4:30pm. I realized that I definitely need to store more granola bars and almonds in my bag for times like this. I also want to pre portion some protein powder for situations like this so if necessary I can just buy a single serving of milk and make a protein shake.
A friend has decided to join WW tonight so I am going to go with her to the meeting. I will continue my at work meetings, but I like the idea of some extra support mid week and having someone else following the program can only be a good thing.
