Shopping in my closet

October 19th, 2019 at 02:08 pm

I took a day off work yesterday and spent some time switching out my summer and fall/winter clothes. I have a pretty nice size walk-in master closet so everything is in there, I just needed to bring the fall/winter clothes to the front.

Several months ago I adopted a healthier lifestyle. I needed to lose some weight and wanted to just improve my overall health. I didn't follow any kind of a strict diet. I concentrated on cutting out processed foods mostly. I also committed to walking 5 days a week. To date, I have lost 17 pounds! There were a few weeks when I didn't lose any weight, but I didn't gain any. I pretty consistently lost 1-2 pounds a week. I didn't restrict myself completely, but instead of eating 3 slices of pizza I would start with a salad and have one slice of pizza every now and then. As I was trying on clothes that I couldn't fit into last fall/winter, I was delighted that they now fit. I was so happy to not have to buy any new clothes.

Today I will be out running the usual errands and I am having dinner out with some friends at a new restaurant that opened a few weeks ago. Should be fun!

I did switch over from the AC to the heat and changed the furnace filter. I made sure the heat cranked on properly and everything is working fine. Cold weather is coming. I usually just set thermostat at 65. I'm comfortable with that and a sweater on. And I sleep better when it's cooler.

It's supposed to rain tomorrow so I'll be staying in and doing some meal prep for the week while football is on.

Have a great weekend!

    Good job on the weight loss and eating healthier! What a nice thing to fit into clothes so you didn't have to buy new.

    I like the house cooler too for sleeping.

    Congrats on the weight loss. I have been doing keto since March. I don't know how much I have lost, but it's enough I can wear pants I had not been able to wear in awhile.

    I need to lose about seven more pounds and then I will be down to the next size and can do the same thing. Congrats on your weight loss.

    Great that you're getting healthier! You're doing it the right way too - adding habits that can be kept forever. Hopefully you feel as good as you look in your Fall clothes!
