I am losing weight and last year's work pants are no longer appropriate to wear. I look like a clown in them. Yet, I am soooooo happy for this:)
I probably have different sizes of clothing to last me at least two sizes. I am currently traveling for work but when I go home, I will try all my pants to label them as follows:
Red: Too big. Wear no more.
Blue: Wearable at this size.
Yellow: Smaller sizes.
Tops are less of a problem because unlike pants, you can wear them a little longer without looking like a clown. Besides I was wearing most of my shirts with a tank top not buttoning them up since they were very tight fitting. Now, I can button them up and most will be OK till I lose at least 7-10 Kgs.
I wear jeans every day when I do not work so, I am wearing them out nicely and when I truly need new pairs of jeans, I already have three pairs in two smaller sizes. So, shopping is not on the horizon yet. After I am down two sizes, I may need some new clothes but I will keep my shopping at a minimum.
This time, I am determined to stick to healthy eating. I do not know what has clicked in my mind but, I am very mindful of what I put in my mouth. I no longer drink soda pop, diet or not. I no longer eat fast food of any kind.
I sometimes crave chips especially when I am going to have my period but eating a small bag of chips once a month should not be such a big deal.
