Summer Wardrobe Woes

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

I'm travelling to a warmer climate on Thursday, so today I brought out my summer clothes from hibernation. Although I didn't use to weigh myself, I knew I'd gained since last time I wore them in November. But then I have lost almost 4 kilos (8 lbs) since joining SP in early March, so I was confident they would be just about right.

Wrong. The majority didn't fit. Only those that were loose on me in November now fit more or less ok. I could literally feel energy and optimism drain from my system. How much could I possibly have gained in 3 months that a 4-kilo loss didn't make up for??

Well, there is no use looking back at what could have been and let it bring me down. Looking forward:
~ I found and started using SP which these minor wardrobe woes won't change emoticon
~ I have hardly engaged in any emotional eating for about 3 weeks and intend to keep working on my recovery from emotional eating emoticon
~ I have lost almost 4 kilos and anticipate continued loss from obesity through overweight to normal emoticon
~ I already feel the positive effects of making healthy choices, eating to satiate my hunger and nourish my body, as well as from moving more actively to improve my stamina, strength and flexibility emoticon

I'm lucky in the sense that I'm going to Egypt and for the most part, I won't be needing my shorts and tanktops as I will need to be more covered than that. Apart from a few items, my summer clothes therefore were sent back into their box. By the time temperatures rise to bring summer to this latitude, I will indeed fit into my clothes. Because I'M CONTINUING TO MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES AND TAKING CARE OF MY BODY.

    Bakslag som kan bli fallgropar, men du har skickligt byggt broar över vägarna med gropar i. Jag beundrar din inställning! Men som sagt innan sommaren och vår semester kommer säkert kläderna i lådan ramla av dig och hänga som säckar, i alla fall om du åller samma glöd och inställning som nu!
    Kram!

    Oh my, you are choosing the right attitude - I am not sure if I could have done the same thing... when I stepped on my scale after a long absense it was not easy at all to handle that it had gone the wrong way and I had to start again to lose the kilos that slipped off last year.

    Thank you for the inspiration!
