Waiting for Cinderella
I also got rid of all my holey clothes. Tell me I'm not the only one with those...you know, the clothes that have holes, but it's so hard to find comfortable things that fit that you keep the holey ones to wear around the house. So, then, you have your "out in public" clothes -- the few decent things you have that fit -- and the "at home" clothes -- the rags you wear when no one but your husband and kids will see you.
Well, I decided today that no longer will I wear rags like Cinderella before the prince. If my clothes get holes in them, they're gone. Oh, okay, I do have one absolute favorite shirt that is so comfortable that has a couple of holes. It's staying. Even my thin husband has a couple of those, but, for the most part, I'm going to let myself be worthy of clothes that fit and that are suitable for anyone to see me in.
I also wanted to respond to a comment by Paige. Now, I did reply to her in the comments, but I loved the idea that came to me as I was responding to her, so I decided to share it here. Paige suggested that it might be time to post an update photo of myself. I told her that I've been talking to Minnesota Mami, via blog comments, about people who don't know that you're losing weight noticing and commenting on your weight-loss.
Maybe it's because I've told so many people that I'm losing weight that it's hard to find someone who doesn't know, but, so far, I haven't had one of those comments. I think that when I get the first one, though, that will be evidence that there's been enough change to warrant an update photo. So, the first unsolicited comment I get from someone who doesn't know I'm losing, I'll post an update photo. Doesn't that sound like a fun way to celebrate?
