Weigh-in day Need clothes already??

For some reason today I was not nervous about the scale whatsoever...
I expected that I should have a loss..
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I did REALLY good this week.
I mean I am sure everyone has good weeks and still does not mean a loss on the scale and I may have stepped on the scale and not have seen a loss who knows..
But I did and that is a good thing!!! 183.5  So...1 POUND...I am good with that!! It is one more pound closer to the 70's..I can not believe that I am something like 4 pounds from seeing the 70's which I don't think I have seen in over 13 years!!!

OK but here is the crazy thing.. I have a few articles of clothing that STILL don't fit me..So it obvious that our bodies change as we get older..I am only talking about 4 years here.. They are just a couple pairs of pants..That I should be able to wear at the weight I am at right now. But I think that my mid section has changed since I am in my 30's! So they don't fit the same. So they won't fit till I am in my 70's to where they fit when I was in my high 80's the one time for that short while a few years back. But that is OK..I mean I have already fit into 20 pairs of pants that did not fit and many pairs I can't even wear anymore..

The most recent thing that has happened...
I was standing in my closet the other day. It was Sunday. Me and Jack were going to run out and pick up some groceries and I was just going to throw on some sweat and a T-shirt. When I realized that I did not have to do that because I have a closet full of jeans that fit. So I put on a pair of jeans.Then I started looking through my tops... They are ALL HUGE!!!! I have a couple of T-shirts that were small enough that I could wear. So I took one down and put it on. Jack said too he had never seen me wear it. because NOTHING ELSE FITS!!!! That is a good thing. I am going in a different direction. I also have a few bras that I noticed when I wear them they are so uncomfortable. As I walk they swoosh and leave a rash. I guess they call it chaffing from being too big. So I had one that use to be too small. IT FITS!!! Boy it felt great to wear a bra that fit that I was not tugging on all day! So 90% of all my shirts are now jammy shirts or donate pile and I need to go shopping.. How do I do that when I am saving to move?? Guess I will have to buy just a couple of tops to get me by for the spring. I am going to wait another 10 pounds before I buy anything.It seems my body is changing faster then I thought it would!


  1. Awesome weigh in!!!!!!!!!!! And you are sooo going to have to post pictures of your new clothes!!! I put my old clothes behing my new clothes so I could see the difference... my gawd, I was blown away!! You are doing amazing!! Keep it up

  2. Awesome! I can't wait until I fit into my old jeans again..I have a whole wardrobe just waiting for me.

  3. AWESOME!!! Way to go on that loss, Renea!! I'm so proud of you! :) Also, way to go on those clothes! I can't wait until mine get too big to wear. LOL Keep on keeping on, hon! :)

  4. I've started shopping at Good Will because you can find some name brand clothes there in a good condition and they're so cheap! Then it's not such a big deal when they're too big!

  5. Girl you and me are the same weight! I weigh in again on Saturday though, but I haven't been the in 170's for about 13 years either! More power to us!

  6. Okay, seriously, I love that you are getting to this point.. where nothing in your closet fits.. I hear it's a terrific feeling (until you realize that NOTHING fits.. lol)

    Congrats on the loss, and you are doing such a great job.. sorry it's so late on the congrats, but I'm a little behind..
