I’ve been a busy bee. I just got rid of another four trash bags full of old clothing. I think that nearly all of my plus sized clothing is gone now. I may have a few stray 1XL garments, but for the most part… it’s out. Aside from that,... Read more
Shopping at Normal Stores
Sunday, December 03, 2017      10 comments

I'm at the point where I can consistently shop at "normal" clothing stores. It still feels kind of unreal... it doesn't really register that I'm a size XL (sometimes even a large.) I oftentimes find myself gravitating to the 2XL section before r... Read more

Weight loss progress has been slow. Though to be honest, I haven't been putting much effort in lately. It's frustrating, because like everyone else, I want immediate gratification. However, I can't allow myself to fall into that mindset too badl... Read more
Rediscovering Spiritual Practice
