The Closet Cleaning Blues

I need to clean my closet. I mean I really need to clean my closet. I forget what I have in there and go out and buy something that is already hanging in there with the tag still on it. I know what the problem is, it's not because it's not a big enough closet although an even bigger one would be delightful. It's because I have three different sizes in there at one time. I have the wearable size which is still comfortable, the tight size that isn't comfortable and the NEVER IN YOUR DREAMS size that should be sent to Good Will. Am I the only one that thinks that they will at some point be able to get into the N.I.Y.D. size again?

It's not looking good for me. I am consistent......in the fact that I'm not consistent when I am trying to take off a few pounds. For example, I had a Slim Fast for lunch, now that's good..... but.... I had a Dairy Queen Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard last night that Husband brought home to me because he's a nice guy and knows I LOVE them! That's bad. So you can see why it's not looking too good.

Now I do have a really good incentive this time around. We're going to Bermuda in May for another business convention and I love the beaches there, they are wonderful, but you have to wear a bathing suit when you go swimming. Well actually you don't on some of the beaches but you can bet your boots I won't be on that beach!

I finally bit the bullet and went through my closet and the storage boxes under my bed recently. I gave away all the clothes (size 6) which haven't fit in years and years but which I kept as an incentive for losing the extra pounds. There isn't any way I'm ever going to be a size 6 again. I give up!!!

LOL you sound so much like me.. I think I have 4 different sizes in my closet right now, my before child #1 size, before Child #2 size before Child #3 size and the size I wear now and I might still have some of a 5th size the size I wore after having child #4 which I hope never to see again LOL.

My MIL(mother in-law) has bought new shirts before only to go home and find in her closet that she had bought the same shirt a year ago hung it in her closet and forgot about it, she doesn't like to take stuff back to stores so I always end up with a new shrit when she does that. Good thing she doesn't have too bad of taste.

I'm also like you with dieting. Monday night I went out and exersized for 30 mins Only to come home and eat 3 cookies.. ~sigh~ I dont think i'll ever lose this 20 pounds I want to shead to be back to where I was 12 years ago before I got PG with child #1.
