Oh, I love shoes! As a former fat girl, shoes were the only thing I knew I could always find in my size that would look good on me. As I always said - shoes are a fat girls best friend! I'm not longer a fat girl (at least, not on the outside; I'll always be a cake-loving fat girl on the inside, and proud of it, lol!), but I still love shoes! So you can imagine my shock and sadness when I realized that it's possible to lose so much weight that you actually go down in your shoe sizes!

I used to wear a 9 or 9.5 (preferably wide width), and now I wear between an 8 and a 9, depending on the shoe (most of them closer to 8's and no longer wide). It's not a big deal with my old sneakers, but with some of my heels and such, they just don't fit right and aren't wearable anymore. So I'm now selling some of my best friends, and I'm hoping they can go and make other people as happy as they've made me. (And I can go out and find new best friends!)

6 Sales

Woke up this morning and got online to see that I had 6 sales go through overnight! What a nice surprise! 2 books sold on half.com and 4 of my items on ebay sold! I'll do an official savings update once I mail the items out and see what shipping costs, but I know I've made $7.50 from the books on ebay, and $45 from the items on ebay, assuming I charged enough for shipping. I also have 2 other ebay items that look like they might sell this week, for another $10.

As much as I'm excited about this extra money, it also feels awesome to be getting things cleaned out of my house and clearing out some space in my storage unit. I know I have too many clothes and too much stuff in general, and it's great to let it go and find a new home for it Smile

In other news, nothing new on the weight loss front. I overindulged for my birthday last week, so this week I have to get back to eating healthier again. Was it worth it? Yes! lol Smile

On the Weight Loss side, I have made a dent in my 20 pound goal! I am down 3 pounds from last week! Yay! Before starting this blog, I was already down 1.2 pounds, so I've lost 4.2 of my 20 pounds!

Old Weight: 240
New Weight: 235.8
Weight Loss: 4.2

I can't believe I'm so close to my goal weight! When I started my WL journey almost 3 years ago, I weighed 350 pounds. I'm down almost 115 now, and it really seems like I'll hit 220 this year. Smile
