As you may know if you've been following my weight loss blog A Skinny Fit, since September last year, I've been on a weight loss journey. Starting at 185lbs, I'm aiming to get down to 117lbs, and I'm only 21lbs away now.
Because of this weight loss, I've changed dress sizes. I was in a UK16 at my highest weight, and now I'm mostly in size 10, with a few 8's fitting me as well. So my room was filled with clothing that no longer fit me, and if I stick to my plan, won't ever fit me again.
So I knew it was time for a little bit of spring cleaning. I started yesterday, and I've been bagging up several items of clothing to get rid of.
It feels great, knowing that all of these clothes, which are now really big on me, used to fit or even be too small for me.
This is the first time I have ever really enjoyed doing spring cleaning, because it's been showing me how far I've come with my weight loss, and so even though I'm not at goal yet, it feels amazing knowing that I've already made such a huge difference.
The other fun part? Finding things in my wardrobe, from years ago when I used to be skinny. Trying them on and actually having them fit!
It's making me insanely happy, but then again, maybe that's also partly because of the iced coffee I made myself. Nothing tastes quite as good as iced coffee, especially when you're working hard clearing out your room.
It's not just about my personal weight loss though. I also needed to clear out my room, because it's not that big, and I just have so much stuff in it that I don't need/want/use. So I'm taking control and clearing it out, and it's feeling really good to just tidy things up.
Of course, I may not wind up with many clothes left once I'm done, but hey, that just means I get an excuse to go shopping.
