Purge the closet Day! Time has come Cyber Monday

Recommended Posts

As i close in to the end of the weight loss journey, Actually kinda really content with my current size, But according to all the Calculators and apps still need a dozen more pounds, It is time .................................

So for those of you who have not seen my rebel post - I decided when i did the surgery to not buy clothes or get a hair cut and shave only when i could not handle it any more!

Yes i showered and stayed clean just took the attitude lets be a homeless vagabond clean beach bum during this journey to add a little excitement and variety. I have two teenagers and this was fun to piss them off - So for the first 75 pounds stood strong to my Game.

I can take a size 50 pair of cargo shorts and with two zip ties, pull two belt loops together, add a binder clip and i got some 40's - so the shirt is huge and baggy, No problem just do a side pull and a piece of masking tape and you are good to go! Lets not discuss the seamstress miracles i can do with binder clips and clothes pins!

So finally i have decided to come back to earth! and End the game - For the last couple months i have added a few clothes that fit but now its time, I have a huge walk in closet filled with clothes, so off to home depot to get lawn and leaf bags we went yesterday, 9 Bags later i have a empty closet! It was kinda Sad, Some of my favorites i have had for years! But the time has come to let it go, I keep two complete outfits from when i was the biggest and sealed them in a vacuum seal bag for later viewing.

Went to my Barber shop today and he laughed ..... he was like WTF. Since i have had short hair my whole life - He asked what he should do/ BUZZ CUT LETS GET ER DONE!

I have the advantage over most of you living in Naples Florida, You can do the beach bum look and fit right in. Feel weird today and this was a event i was looking forward to but actually was kinda sad and strange.

Moral of the story - There is none, Just enjoy the journey and enjoy the throwing everything out. I actually donated all my stuff today - but its just a part of the journey !

Time to wreck the AMEX card on Cyber Monday getting clothes

I am kind of new here and a little on the shy side but this is so amazing. Thank you for sharing this! I have not had surgery yet but am looking forward to the day when I can get rid of clothes that are too big this time instead of giving away clothes that are too little for me cause I’ve gotten too big.
enjoy shopping!!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
