Still feeling good !

I am still feeling like a kid at Christmas. Woke up this morning and took out some of my new clothes to wear – am feeling very happy with myself and how I look today. It is so nice to sit here in comfy clothes that aren’t pull on pants with the tops rolled over and shirts that are 2 sizes to big. I’ll have to get used to undoing my zip to go to the loo !!!! That saying “Nothing tastes as good as being happy with yourself feels” (well that is a slight adaption but you know what I mean) – is so true !!!
Anyway, I forgot to tell you that on Sunday Kaitlin and I did a big clear out of my wardrobe. I know that Paulene suggested selling my big clothes on ebay but I really couldn’t ask anyone to pay for them – they have been worn day in and day out for too long. Plus a friend has asked if she could take them over if I wanted to get rid of them which I am very happy to do (because I know they are going to a good home !!!!) BUT, first I have to prove to myself that I can maintain and that I won’t be needing them in the future so I have put them away in a spare cupboard – hopefully not to be needed again but at least I have a safety net there if I do need them. That would be before someone gives me the kick in the pants to get back to where I am now.
Thank you for all the excitement you have provided for me every time I open a comment – your enthusiasm and congratulations for me getting to goal has just been fantastic.
Last night I had a bite of my Boost bar before I went to work and then took it out of the fridge and finished it when I got home and was trying to get hold of Al on Skype and watching the rather dismal performance of the Australian cricketers. I enjoyed every morsel of it and was very thankful that my conscience had prevailed when I was buying it as Cadbury’s have a special on – 2 for $3 – or $2 each. While I knew that economically it would be better to buy 2 bars – I knew that weight wise it would be disastrous because I would land up eating both and one was all I really needed to celebrate !
I am off to get some sushi for lunch because with all the excitement last night I forgot about making lunch for today and it was only when I was leaving the house that I realised I didn’t have any lunch to bring with me. Luckily Kaitlin is at home so she will organize her own lunch today.

TFTD : One thing about the school of experience is that it will repeat the lesson if you flunk the first time.

Congratulations you are a champion....It must be a truly wonderful feeling. Now you must do that thing where you take the photo of yourself in an old pair of pants or skirt and your new one for your story in the WW magazine 8-) Well if not for the WW mag just for us then.

I almost panicked when I couldn't find your link tonight, then I remembered that I moved it LOL. I won't say to the "special peoples section" because that could get misconstrued. But you are very special.

Good on you for clearing out your wardrobe. You will not need that safety net.

Have another great day tomorrow Linda :)

No Linda!!
"BUT, first I have to prove to myself that I can maintain and that I won’t be needing them in the future so I have put them away in a spare cupboard – hopefully not to be needed again but at least I have a safety net there if I do need them."
You know that keeping them is no safety net for you. Getting rid of them is the safety net - ensuring that you stay your current size or walk around naked???
Pretty clear choice I'd say :)
Congrats again...now please....GIVE US SOME PHOTO'S!!!! :)
Cheers P

It's so exciting Linda, I'm so happy for you! And this very post has a great example of why you reached goal - buying one boost bar and not the two, allowing you to be in control. WTG! :)
