There's some weird psychological stuff going on in my head.
So much so that I had a revelation at Wal-Mart (more on that later.)
As mentioned before, I went on a 6 month shopping freeze when I realized the only reason why I bought clothes was because I was unhappy with how I looked in general.
So far it's worked and I have come to just go with the flow and not obsess about what I'm wearing
because I know I can't buy anymore.
But now it's spreading into all areas of my life and it's actually very freeing.
While at our semi-annual (and I mean we can only handle it twice a year) trip to Wal-Mart
I looked around at all the Christmas decorations and it occurred to me that I didn't want to look at any of it.
I said to myself "Hmm... I don't need any of that. I have enough from last year."
I used to be all about giveaways and freebies but now I don't even bother with them
because I'm actually pretty happy with what I have in life already.
I've become less commercial and less obsessed with material goods.
That's not to say that I won't be blogging about fantasy dinner parties or cute outfits.
I've become prudent, not dead.
How this shopping freeze has effected (affected?) my weight.
