In my last post, I revealed that a t-shirt was the catalyst for the changes I’ve started making over the past two years.
One deliberate shift in my behavior (what I was eating) caused me to fit in a new t-shirt. That was the first small step I took in realizing that, even after countless years of believing otherwise, change was indeed possible.
And a few months after that, as the Earth’s odometer flipped from A.D. 2011 to 2012, I found myself a hundred pounds lighter and in desperate need of a new wardrobe. So we put the money into new clothes, considering it a worthwhile (and necessary) investment.
When we make big changes in our life, it’s tempting to hang on to things from our pre-change world. You know, just in case things don’t work out. But I didn’t want to give myself that parachute.
