I spent the weekend getting rid of clothes the kids had outgrown/stained beyond repair. I also put away my winter clothes, and bagged up those that are now too big for me, including all 16's and some 14's. I am now a comfortable size 12 but I also have 14's that are not too baggy so I am holding on to those.
No matter how monotonous weight loss is (and it is!), this clean up job was a great reminder that I NEVER want to go back to that size.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
