Closet purge!

I know it is way too soon for this, but I just totally purged my closet of winter clothes in my current size. The cold weather is behind us for this year, and I KNOW none of those clothes will fit me next winter. So it is all getting packed away to be given away next winter.
I guess most people pack away clothes based on the season, but I never have. My closet is large enough for what I have, and I don't have a lot of bulky winter stuff so it all just stays merrierly in my closet year round. Not this time! All big winter clothes are OUT! No surprise here, but every single thing I got rid of is black or charcoal gray. Lord, I hope there will be some color in my future wardrobe!!
I am down a total of 13 pounds, so I certainly haven't changed sizes, but it makes me feel better to get rid of all that stuff. I have a long way to go, but I WILL be smaller next winter.
This time I mean it!!!!!

Food front is going well. I got some Chili's chicken enchilada soup to go for dinner last night--I could happily live on that stuff! I just skipped all the toppings and had half the bowl last night and will have the other half for lunch today. For breakfast I had unjury chocolate protein powder with skim milk, sliced banana and a teaspoon of peanut butter. 250 calories, 30 grams of protein and yummy!!! Fills me up for hours!!

I have my first follow up with the doctor tomorrow morning, not sure what to expect. I guess he will just check to see that my incisions are healing well and schedule my next appointment for my first fill. Can't believe it has only been 9 days since surgery--I feel great! My challenge will be to not get discouraged when there are no instant results. It takes time to do it right and I have to be patient. Not my best thing...
