First, I want to say I am SO happy to be back on a schedule and routine. I am making smoothies every day, eating good lunches, solid dinners, and am in control of the choices. It feels good to be getting back into the swing of things after so much travel.
Before I left I had a pile of clothes in my spare room I needed to go through. Things I wasn't sure if I should take on my trips, or that I wasn't even sure would still look good as I suspected they might be too big.
So I tried on a thing or two.
Holy Mackerel! That's definitely a boost to the esteem and adds a bit 'o "recharge" to the whole process. No, I'm not in it just for weight loss. My main goal is longevity - getting healthy and staying that way. Of course, one measure of that is attaining a healthy weight. Even if the scale hasn't moved all that much this summer, seeing this sure was a shot in the arm!
I still have some more clothes left to clear out/donate, and I do look forward to it. There's something uniquely strengthening in purging out the old to leave room for the new (physically and metaphorically.)
What a nice way to start the week!
