My church does a clothing giveaway at least twice a year and the next one will be in a couple of weeks, so it was time to clean out the closet. I tried on everything in my closet this morning and all of these clothes are going to the church! A lot of this stuff I haven't worn or couldn't wear and some stuff was only worn once and some not at all. I hate to shop, so when I do go shopping for clothes, more often than not I'll buy two or three pairs of pants and 4 or more shirts - just so I don't have to go again for 6 months or a year!
And now I have a lot more room in my closet and a lot more hangers available too! I now have two pairs of black slacks and one pair of brown slacks, and no blue slacks! I have more mid to long sleeve tops that short sleeved and a few tops only for wearing around the house, and a couple that I can wear to run to the store, but not wear to lunch!
Thank God for stretch jeans, but whoever invented stretchy tops should have their head examined. I often wonder if I ever looked in the mirror wearing some of that stuff!
The upshot of all this is that I have started yet another diet/lifestyle change. I need to lose 30 pounds, but it's okay if it takes me a week to lose 1 pound, so it's a long-term goal. I've joined SparkPeople.com again to log my food and exercise and to keep me honest! And that is usually how long it takes me to lose a pound, too - my fat and I have become very good friends -- we won't be saying goodbye quickly by any means!
And now I'm off to tackle the rest of my to-do list today.
Until next time....blessings.
