Body Changes...

Still working on life changes and one of the biggest was trying to get to a healthy weight & size. So far so good, I think, but there is still quite a ways to go. Today was weigh-in and measurements day. Ugh...I dread the end of every month now.

Anyway now that I'm down 17 pounds and 22.25 inches I'm having a new issue. I can't figure out how to dress my body not that I was having an easy time of it before losing the weight. I am in between sizes but if I don't find some clothes to wear than I'm going to have to go naked soon and that is a vision that no one wants to have. My problem is nothing fits right especially since I'm losing faster in some parts than in others. And don't even get me started on bras. You know when your band size gets smaller your cup size should too. It should be a law of nature that both bra measurements should shrink together. In my case that is not happening. In August when I got serious about the weight loss thing my bra size was 38D as of March my bra size is now 34DDD.

I need to figure out something to wear to have a picture made for the weight loss contest going on at the dojang. They want before and after photos. I don't have a current before photo and I can't figure out what to wear because I don't have any sport bras that fit.
This is a photo of me in October. I had lost 3.5 pounds and about 8 inches when this was taken. I let hubby talk me into buying this swimsuit. Don't know what the heck I was thinking and he must be blinder than I thought!


Still cleaning out...

I cannot believe how much crap we have in this house!!! Yes I said crap. I have been sorting drawers and boxes and shelves for the last several weeks. Unfortunately I'm not finished yet either. It has felt so good to get rid of stuff. We have 24 eBay auctions listed right now of stuff we are trying to sell and some Craigslist postings too. I've also made 1 Goodwill drop-off and have started another pile of Goodwill stuff.

I'm also working on organizing ideas for the things that we do keep and I'm not planing on there being a ton of that either. Our goal is to turn the bonus room into a workout/martial arts practice/play room so I have really been focused on getting rid of stuff in that area the most. We still need to finish getting stuff out of there but some of it will be leaving as soon as our auctions end and our Craigslist posting run their course too.


Major Cleaning Out Going On...

I have spent 3 days this week sorting through all of my craft stuff and have a HUGE list of stuff that is going away and actually I'm looking very forward to getting it out of my house. I actually think that if I could I would tilt the house and dump everything out of it. Then I could carry back in only those things that we absolutely love. There is just so much in this house and very little of it is something that I could even remotely say that I love. If you've been around for any time then you know that 1 of the changes I want to make this year is to clear out and organize our home and make it a warm & wonderful place to live.
