It's a matter of perspective

Saturday, December 04, 2010

OK, in the interest of full disclosure I am going to admit that for the last two weeks the only thing I've done every day is log on, spin the wheel, and post my spin points. BUT that has at least kept my mind on SP. I have not tracked my food, I have not kept up with the friend feed, I have not blogged, and I have not even been reading email (not even my regular email, much less the SP email). I have over participated a little in the now almost daily celebrations. People in Louisiana know how to celebrate (which means eat) for everything! I have gained a couple pounds, but have not updated my ticker because I am going to lose it right away. Whew! That was a lot of confessing!

OK, now the real reason for my post - even given all of the above, I'm having happy clothes moments! I pulled out all my winter clothes and spent over an hour trying on sweaters that I haven't worn in a while, and was so excited because about 75% of it fit. I have some stuff that is just tiny, which I left in the bin without trying on, but everything that I thought was even a wild chance **maybe** I did try on, and they fit. A bunch of the ones I tried on thinking "this is never gonna fit", but they did! So today I ran all through the air cycle on the dryer with a fabric softener towel to freshen them up, and am currently folding all and putting them in drawers. I have run across at least 6 that I've thought "Did I try this one on? There's no way this fits." and then I try it on, and yep, it fits!! I just can't get used to looking at that size and thinking I can wear it. It's making me excited about losing the rest of my weight, so I can wear fun clothes in the summer. I am oh so happy that I found SP. As soon as these sweaters are put away, I am going to do some Zumba to start getting back on track.

I want to apologize to everyone for being lax on emails, comments, etc. I am going to try to catch up soon. I hope everyone is doing well, enjoying the season, and sticking with SP!

    Hi Cathy
    It has to be a great feeling to try on clothes and find that you can fit into them, it is a great motivator. Congratulations
    As far as apologizing for not being on Spark, each person decides how much time or times where you really can't spend time. As you continue your journey and learn more and more about healthy living, you will find that you can attend the kind of events that you did, with out over eating and gaining weight. Those days will come.
    Thank you for sharing

    It's OK to take a break - seems like most of us do, from time to time - glad you are getting back to it!
