A very productive day

Sign in to follow this  


Well, I live in the mid-atlantic region that now finally on the end side of an enormous snowstorm (my county is actually still under a blizzard warning). Due to this I am homebound and thought this would be a good day to accomplish some things.


First I started the huge process of cleaning out my closets, dresser, and laundry room (where I also store a lot of clothes). With the help of some others on here and a phone conversation, I decided it was time to get rid of my 14's. I even got rid of most of my 12's (saved one pair of jeans that still fit great) and quite a few of my 10's. I've only gotten through half of one closet and a couple bins from the laundry room and my jeans drawer, but I feel so much better. I took the time to try on every single item. So here is a picture of the half of closet I did. I usually prefer to wear more spring and summer colors, but now there is a definite lack of color in the wardrobe I have left. I also usually do not hang my jeans, but my closet is looking so bare:-(


About an hour into the closet organizing project, my husband wanted to do another snow shoveling round outside and since I didn't help with the first one, I got dressed and went out to help. I again am amazed at how much better my life is since I've had this surgery. I was able to shovel so much and felt sort of bad about how before losing this weight I never had energy to do much around the house or with my husband.


Overall, a very productive day!

This snow is crazy! I was able to shovel a ton as well, way more than before. We stayed in and played a new Wii game and got lots of exercise.

Also - party was, of course, canceled! All that dress shopping for nothing. :)

I'm so sorry about the party...but maybe you and your husband can plan a date out (maybe Valentine's) so the great dress doesn't go to waste??

I need an ounce of your motivation DeeDee ! ! ! I have been so lazy lately, and know that one day it's gonna catch up with me. I did finally get rid of some of my lounge pants that were size 20 that I wore around the house. John finally told me it was time to let them go. I got rid of all the other clothes in bigger sizes, but I was holding onto those lounge pants. I don't know why, I found it comforting, or something. I couldn't sleep in them because I had to roll them up 6 times at the waist just so they would stay up. I hope the snow ends for y'all soon. I have some good friends up that way, and they are so tired of being cooped up in the house.

DeeDee..your closet looks great. Now you can buy some "new" clothes to help fill it up. Hope the sun shines for you soon. I know the snow can get old very quickly.
