4-Hour Body BlahBlahBabble Food

Overwhelmed by Things…

I’m overwhelmed by things.

Not that I’m overwhelmed by everything, but rather, things – things filling up my house. Especially clothes. I have entirely too many clothes, and I just keep on getting more, lat week I got two pairs of the faux fur cuffs. I need to clear them out. Give them away. Keep only what I wear the most.

This is always such a challenge for me. In the past 10 months, I’ve lost 25lbs thanks to Four Hour Body, which translates to over 2 clothing sizes. So clothes that I loved to wear last winter? They hang on me now. Yet I’m afraid to get rid of them.

I think that is the root of it all, the fear. Fear of gaining the weight again, of needing those old clothes. I know it isn’t going to happen, I’ve completely changed how I eat and it has kept the weight off.

It is time to let go of the clothes. Time to let go of the fear. Time to embrace me. Time to no longer be overwhelmed by holding on to too many things.

Boy do I know that feeling. I’m down a size too (Paleo) and I have my “skinny jeans” (2 sizes down from where I am now, and totally out of date) and the back of my closet just in case. I always feel so much better after I purge stuff from my life, and over the years I’ve gotten better about not filling up the empty spaces with more stuff. Better, but not awesome. And I’ve really worked on being OK (but not satisfied) with where I am on the journey toward a specific goal. Keep on truckin’ Christine!

When I lose weight, I box up my ‘fat clothes’ and store them in the back of the closet. Needing to pull out my ‘fat jeans’ motivates me to eat better so I can box them back up again!
