I feel you, sister. Believe me, those feelings all make perfect sense. This is a long hard road..
I'm here with you, though!.
I kind of understand what you mean. I too am pretty excited to be losing a decent amount of weight but then I feel a little scared like "is this too good to be true?" I signed up at the Medifast center so I will drag my butt in there for the next year and a half weighing in, gettin goal and doing transition and maintenance and hopefully that'll help. For what we paid, I think I'll be sticking with it still it's a tough slope. I think I'll make a deal with myself that if I gain back a full 5 pounds I have to go back on 5/1 until I lose it..
Amy you must have caught the bug from Freya! Take the clothes to Good Will and sanitize your keyboard right away!.
I already had to call the WAAAbulance for Freya earlier tonight!.
It's going to be alright! MF=Happiness! Yayhoo! Don't worry, be happy and all that jazz!.
Yep, been there. Join the club. It passes..
Bag dat shizz up and get it out of your room! We're all there with you girl. I don't know how I'll buy new clothes either, but whatever.... I'd rather be thinner and wearing baggy clothes than fat!.
I'm right there with you! I actually had an assortment of clothes of various sizes in my closet. This last "downsize" was to the smallest size I own - I had no more to pull from. What this means is besides a single pair of the largest pants (and shirt) I own, everything else either has gone, or will go..
In my mind I keep thinking holy crap - no clothes LOL! I'm starting to rummage through the goodwills and second hand stores for a couple pair of acceptable pants.... my current pants are getting noticeably baggy and I'm running out of time LOL! I have a small variety of shirts that will keep me going.... very small variety but at least I can wear a different one every day LOL!.
This has been the best program to actually work on me - and yet, this "purging" of all my clothes... so many favorites that break my heart to see go! .
It's the slight panic that sets in just before I turn my head and look toward the future and imagine what I will look like at goal. I may not be perfect, but it will certainly be a lot healthier and has given me a great outlook on life!.
Thanks ya'll! I feel so much better this morning. Change is scary and rapid change is twice as scary. But this is fun and I'm not about to get derailed because of some psycho feelings of fear of change. Happy MFin day!.
Amy - what size to you need? There are plenty of other MF'ers in the same situation. Just post what sizes you need, and I'm sure someone would be glad to help you out! We all have that pile of clothes that no longer fit us. Maybe one of our piles is exactly what you are looking for?! I've been passing down clothes to a fellow MF'er for a while now. It's nice to know that they are going to a good 'temporary' home - until they are passed on again!.
