I went clothes shopping in my own closet

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

I decided to clean out my closet yesterday (AGAIN) and get rid of the clothes that I have not worn and will not wear. I have a lot of pretty blouses which seems to be what I buy most and while I was sorting through them....I decided to at least try them on to make sure that I wanted to get rid of them.

While taking the time to do this ...I discovered that what I thought I was ready to discard ...fit me and looked nice.

Now a week ago, I had a bad clothes shopping experience and had dedicated to get these last 11# off before I tried it again. It was discouraging but it taught me to be even MORE "INTENTIONAL" to get to my goal.

I have been paying myself $1 for every day that I exercize and when I reached my goal...then I would go on a shopping spree.

Now, I may use that money for something else as I went shopping in my closet and I don`t need new clothes.

    I wish I had kept clothes from my thiner past. I got rid of them al But now I am also dumping too bigs now so the only items in my clothes store all fit. I am hoping for a big shopping spree when the last 10lbs go. Enjoy your shopping in the closet session . Ree
