Empty Closet Problems!

Well, I have to go back to work next week and I am not entirely sure what I will wear. Today I took the bold move of removing all the clothes that no longer fit me. I have been wearing these clothes even though they are way to big for me trying to save money for the past few months. Buying clothes that I know won’t fit me in a few months, keeping in mind I am only half way through my weight loss journey, it is a hard pill to swallow when you have so many other things that we need. (back to school clothes, school supplies, etc.)

Thanks to my beautiful sister who has also shed lots of weight, she has been giving me her old clothes which does help but I think I will still need to shop a bit.

I must admit it was very therapeutic getting rid of the clothes. As I sit here writing, I have a huge grin on my face with the satisfaction that I am not going back there! But some of the clothes I got rid of come with memories of occasions, like the dress I wore to my dad’s celebration of life. It’s a weird thing, I knew I would never wear that dress again because it was associated with such a sad day for me but I held onto it for 9 years. But today, I am saying goodbye to that dress. Like most people that struggle with weight, I had a huge selection of clothes from all eras. The funny thing is, by the time you fit them, they are no longer in style. So bye-bye acid wash jeans, you are too big and you are way so last decade (or two)! Ha!

I am a strong confident woman. I am a mom of 3 three amazing children, married to my BFF of 25 years, who loves weight training, yoga, hiking, cycling, and sometimes still the odd run. I am currently completing a MA in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Leadership in Organizational Culture at Royal Roads University, which will be completed in January 2020. I am currently working in higher education for BCcampus as a Project Manager for Collaborative Projects. I lead a coaching community of practice at my workplace which I developed as part of my Masters. I dabble a bit in coaching outside of work but will likely do more as I complete my Masters. I have big goals for myself, there are no limits to what is possible.
