Losing weight is bringing me down ...
And it is creating more work for me.
I had an interesting experience getting dressed today. I suddenly have so many more things in my closet from which to choose.
And, I've come to the realization that I am going to have to take on a project this upcoming week. I need to go through my closet, try on clothes, and do some rearranging. I need to donate the stuff that is too large for me now, and I need to take inventory of what is now available to me.
This is no small task.
I was never a "clothes horse" but as I went up in size, I didn't do a LOT of weeding (though some). I think the last time I went through things was about six years ago. Yep, some of the items in my closet haven't been worn in 5-6 years. (Crazy ...)
I'm comfortably in size 26 jeans now, and the 28s I bought in early September are pretty baggy. They are almost to the point I can't wear them - almost. So, the lesson there is when I next buy jeans, only buy two or three, because I may only get two months use out of them. I am NOT complaining about that - at all - but it wasn't very far-sighted of me to buy seven, when I feel I barely had a chance to wear them. It is a waste of money for me, but I know it will help someone shopping Goodwill next month. (It isn't easy to find fashionable large clothing.)
I don't look forward to the extra work, and it is so time-consuming, but I can't keep reaching for stuff, only to find I look like a hobo in them, all baggy. Hey, it may work for Halloween weekend, but definitely not afterwards.
Here is a fun NSV for me today ...
My husband has been eating the same things I have been (for dinner), only in slightly higher volume. And today, he fit into jeans he hasn't worn in years! I'm so happy for him!!
