southernldy's Journal, 05 September 2011

Had to buy new underwear...lol... Also today I tried on a pair of 18W jeans, that do NOT stretch, and they fit!!!! So now I am going through all of my clothes and getting rid of all of my size 20W clothes. I never thought cleaning out my closet and dresser would be so much fun. I am going to box up the good stuff and send it to my sister and donate the rest to Goodwill.

I took my measurements the other night and could not believe how the inches are dropping off my whole body!! That is just sooooo cooooool!!!

Well gotta get back to cleaning out my closet and dresser...he he he...

P.S. My throat is on fire today. I started taking antibiotics (strep is going around) but I am having a hard time drinking water because the cold hurts my throat. I would drink hot tea but I won't drink it without Splenda and I don't need the extra carbs. I already had two cups of coffee with a small amount of heavy cream so I can't have any more of that or I will get the jitters. So now I am out of warm drink options....sigh... :( Any suggestions?

Yvonne19 nothing feels better than putting on new clothes that are down a size!! Let me know when you get into those size 16's and we will celebrate together. I am very fortunate to have a friend who is also loosing weight and is a couple sizes below me. She is passing her clothes down to me. I have several size 16's on stand by as we speak....lol..... I told her I was going to pass her up and then I would have to hand down some clothes to her...lol... Now she is working real hard not to let that happen....lol.... I love a good challenge!

Thank you everyone. I am feeling much better. It took me all day to clean out my closet and my dresser. It took 4 large leaf trash bags to clean out my closet and dresser. I gave 2 bags away to Goodwill, 1 bag was trash and 1 bag will be going to my sister. I will send my sister a box of clothes as soon as the weather here changes and I can no longer wear shorts. She lives in Florida and she can wear them most of the year. I will never miss any of those clothes and I will NOT ever go back to that size again!! It's strange because the scale doesn't really show that I have lost a ton of weight but when I take my measurements I am loosing inches and of course my clothes size is going down. I keep waiting for the scale to catch up...lol... Of course I am in my second week of doing Zumba plus I have so much energy now that I have been cleaning my house like crazy. I have a 2 story house and have been running up and down the steps. I think I am building up some muscle. I can actually feel biceps in my arms....lol..... I haven't had those since my 20's...lol... It feels good to be getting into shape!!
