My Closet Is Empty!!

I am continually amazed at the process of losing weight. Not just the physical process, but the emotional process. Every time I think I've peeled back all the layers, I learn something new. What a journey!

As you know, this past Friday I hit the goal of being half way done with my weight loss. I had no idea what that would do to me. I am more motivated than ever. Success truly does inspire you to keep going. What I didn't expect was the sudden desire to get rid of all the clothes that are too big for me. As of that moment I didn't want them in my closet anymore and it had to be done immediately. So my middle daughter & I went into my closet and went to work. I filled two large black garbage sacks with clothes. It turned out to be an emotional time for me. I found myself feeling sad over some of the clothes. Apparently I had formed a bond with some because they had hidden me from the world. (Or so I thought.) But mostly it was exciting because I won't ever need those sizes again. I'm free from that number! This feeling of freedom is indescribable! It was like losing the 76 lbs again, all at once. I was able to bless a friend with them and now I can move forward. . . no more looking back. Here's to a better, brighter future!!

I no longer wallow in defeat but run in victory!!!
