Day 23: Just Another Day

Today was a normal day in the life.  I did hear of a great family friend's uncle who passed away today and to be honest it shook me a little more than I had imagined.  I had only met Bill and his sons one time, but they were welcoming and loving.  I think what hit me so hard is the reality of death, how quick it can happen and how it is the only guarantee in life.  It is strange that I am at the age where the generation above mine is starting to pass on.  It seems to me that I am too young to experience that, that Bill's kids are too young to be without their parent.  It brought me to some of my other friends who have lost their parents.  It is just sad.  I don't want to depress, but it was a hard start to the day, and I can only imagine how hard it is for his family.  As well as all of those affected by Hiati.

On lighter note, life just keeps on going by.  I really have a handle on my eating and I am excited about that.  I did walk about 4.5 miles today in an hour and did my first day of the 30 day shred.  My husband (who I'll be surprised if he reads this) did it today too!  I was happy to see him panting when he was done.  It is hard, and he is in good shape...I still don't pant when I am done, although I am pretty well warn out!  :o)  I am hoping to see the number 204 or lower this week.  After hovering at 205 all week last week.

I was thinking today about summer and how I'll have a new body this summer, I got all excited about what I can wear and how I'll feel comfortable in my clothes!  Summer is still far off, but the warm (34 degrees) weather today made me think of summer.  Fortunately it is still several months off so I have time to get down a few sizes before then!  I just get excited about shopping in the normal sized areas.  I can't wait to go into ANY store and buy clothes!  Oh, yeah!!!

I wonder, what do you do about clothes in the mean time?  I don't want to spend money on new clothes (nor do I have any money) when I am just going to grow out of them in a month.  So does anyone have any ideas?  I was thinking I may put my clothes online to sell in the sizes I grow out of for some other person with skinny on the calendar.  That way I can get some cash for my clothes but also someone else can have some nice transition clothes too.  Any ideas on that?  Ooh, or maybe I'll have a swap party!  That way we don't have to spend any money and can swap out our clothes.  Hmmm...

Well today I ate really well.  Ended the day on a great salad with grilled shrimp. :o)

Weight: 205.6
Here's to hopin for a 204 or lower weight in the next few days!

cool that you are blogging about your weight loss. I am in the process of losing weight also. Good to know someone else is trying to lose weight too.

I'm doing a little catch-up...sounds like you are doing awesome! Re: what to do for clothes when you are dropping sizes, I've thought about that too...don't really want to buy a whole new wardrobe for each new size I move into (nor can we afford it)..especially when I'll hopefully only stay in that new size for a couple months!
SO...I'm thinking I'll be doing some thrift store shopping instead! I have a couple good ones by my house that I've shopped at for the kids, but a couple weeks ago was the first time I bought something for me...jeans and a shirt, for a grand total of $4! And they are nice! Worth a shot...

I just ended up donating my clothes once I couldn't wear them. For new ones, I allowed myself one or two things each paycheck, but not until I got to a certain size. I felt like I was kind of setting mini goals for myself. I kept the largest size pants I have ever had, they are stashed away somewhere as a reminder.
