We will be moving in the next few weeks, so I took this week off to jumpstart our packing efforts before things get too busy at work.  

It was slow going at first. We’ve been in this house for a while so things have piled up over time. But then I got to my side of the closet and really started to look at how many clothes I had. Specifically how many clothes I have that are way too big.  I’ve been at my new weight for over a year now, but I still had a ton off stuff that was at least 2 to 3 sizes too big. 

I dumped them. All of them. The dresses, the slacks, the jeans. All bagged up and ready to go to Goodwill.  I feel lighter mentally after doing it. My closet isn’t crammed full of clothes I never want to wear again. I’m moving forward. And I’m giving myself a personal round of applause.

A grlfriend from church has organized her own 5k run that a bunch of us will be doing on the August 28th. It’s good incentive for me to keep moving and training for the half marathon coming up in October.

Congrats to all the other Mamavation Moms who have dropped the pounds.  Some advice: treat yourself to some new threads. It’s great motivation to stay on you journey.
