I'm also sitting here realizing I need to take two pieces out of my watch, it's too loose. Pants are fitting good, I think I am going to need a new size soon and that's always fun. Now I was going through my jeans and I got rid of all 22 and above jeans, but now I have 20's and 18's to get rid of but for some reason I'm having a hard time getting rid of them, especially 18's. I've worn them for so long. I'm wondering if I should hold on to them till I've successfully maintained for a year or am I setting myself up?
I took a bunch of 18/20's to the resale store this weekend. I'm still wearing 16's but they are getting saggy/baggy. I didn't get big money but it was liberating to get those things out of my closet. I said goodbye to the pounds that put me in those clothes and goodbye to the clothes as well. Granted, now my closet is pretty sparse. I think hanging on to the old things is a bad idea for me because if something is a little too tight I have a "go to" pair of jeans or whatever instead of saying "Whoah" what's going on here.
Went shopping in my closet tonight and found some 14's that I can get into and it didn't cost me anything to have some new stuff to wear, but I was dancing around and doing fist pumps I was so happy to see 14 again! So moving out of 16's and into 14's is my NSV for today.
