So, another week passes since WEEK ONE and I have had no interest in buying clothes whatsoever. I haven't even thought of looking on any clothing websites, or going into any shops. In fact yesterday I had to go into a store to buy something for my sister's 58th birthday (it was a gift card- I wasn't buying anything for her that wasn't useful) and I raced in and out without pausing to do anything other than select the gift card.
So last week I got rid of a purple cotton dress and trust me, it wasn't as cute as it sounds. I'd never worn it and never liked it enough to keep it as long as I did, so out it went. This week we have the exit of not one, not two, but THREE bikinis.
Now if I were to tell you that my kid is 14 and I had all three of the bikinis at least 18 months prior to his birth, you would know how long I had kept them. I don't know why I still had them. I am no longer a size 8-10 and to be honest I don't think I'd look right at that size- even if I could get down to that weight again. Also, for me, a bikini is too minimal an item of clothing for me. I'm no prude in the right situation, but I'm a week shy of my 46th birthday, bikinis belong elsewhere...
So two weeks down and I'm feeling super optimistic. I can feel changes already and I like it...more as the year progresses, thank you for being here.
