Weigh-In Wednesday: clothes-ure

It was decent week, especially considering the week was a step back week for training so I only ran 15 miles total. I'm down another .8 for 11 pounds gone. (MFP doesn't total from this go-round.)

I was really bored decided yesterday to start going through my closet. I boxed up around 100 pieces of clothing to send off to Goodwill. Some were items too big. Some still too small. Most were crap I just didn't want anymore.


I think the hardest item to box was a pair of size 14 Silver jeans. These were "reward jeans" from many years ago when I'd lost about 1/2 of the 50 pounds I eventually lost and they've been folded up on the top shelf of my closet for years. I'd been in an 18 and treated myself to these $80 jeans when I'd lost about 20 or 25 pounds. I'm back comfortably into my 8s and even a couple (vanity) 6s but I have at least 10 pounds to go.  I doubt my size will change much more with another 5-10 pounds but you never know.


Those are my 8s on top. Puts into perspective how far I've come (and I wish I'd saved a pair of 18s for comparison). I will never wear a size 14 again and it was time to say "good-bye".  Closure.  Or "clothes-ure" as the case may be.

Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!
