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
~ I have hardly engaged in any emotional eating for about 3 weeks and intend to keep working on my recovery from emotional eating
~ I have lost almost 4 kilos and anticipate continued loss from obesity through overweight to normal
~ 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
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.
