Purging

So, Anna and I finally were able to take a little time to clean out our closets. Anna cleaned out her rack because she had clothes she just didn't wear anymore. I cleaned out my rack because I had clothes that I just couldn't wear. I still had a lot of clothes from before I started this journey 135 pounds ago. So, Here are some before and after pictures of my rack (think I need to get more clothes now??):

BEFORE

AFTER

And here's the amount we donated to Goodwill. Think we need to simplify our lives?


Onto another act of purging: drinking water. Jack Sh*t had a post on tips to help you drink more water. Funny stuff, but it got me thinking about how much water I drink. I know I drink a lot of water (other than 1 cup of coffee a day, all I drink is water), but I had never counted it. At work, I had 6 glasses of water (each glass is 24 ounces--I actually took pictures of each glass of water, but I deleted them before sending them from my phone to my email--dumb, huh?). Then, when I got home, I had these two glasses of water:


Each one is 60 ounces. That means that I'm sitting here, typing this having consumed 28 cups of water. Or 224 ounces. Or 1.75 Gallons. And that's less than usual--I'd usually have another 2 "home glasses" of water. That's a lot of purging going on. Oh yeah, I also have two "home glasses" of water throughout the night. What can I say? I LOVE H20! What about you? Do you find that you love water or do you have to force yourself to drink it?

I both love and have to force myself to drink it. Similar to you, other than coffee, it is almost all I drink. I do also drink some white and green teas on occasion. I usually get 2-3 20-ounce glasses of water in at work, and another 16 ounces or more at home, which isn't as much as I would like to get in.

Great job on the purging and great that you are donating the clothes to Goodwill.

I love water...I just hate having to go the bathroom every 20 minutes. I drink 2-3 litres a day.
