Out with the Old
In with the new

In honor of the peaceful and historic change of the presidency yesterday, I have begun a purging of my own. I walked into my office yesterday and started searching for a random but very important piece of paper and threw up my hands at the chaos of my desk. So, project declutter began. I have completely cleaned off my desk (Of course, my office floor is now littered with papers and folders, but they are slowly getting filed away). It feels good to restore order. So good, that I carried the project home with me, where I commenced in a similar clean out phase in my home office and next in line my closet. My closet is full of clothes that are too big for me. I have given some away, I am getting some altered, but then the perenial question remains. Do i stick to optimism and say that I will never ever be a size 12-16 again and get rid of those clothes, or alter them all. Or do I store some in case I back slide. I want to go for optimism, but buying and paying for altering for a whole new wardrobe is causing me financial pain right now. But then, I am vowing to never go back, right? But the little devil in my head says yeah but look at Oprah (although, all who know me, know i hate Oprah) So, I write, non-eloquently at that, about my internal debate so that I don't feel like I belong in the United States of Tara.

Alas, for now- project out with the old, in with new- will be organization and moving to a different closet I think.

If you need a temporary storage place for those 12s, send them my way! Seems to be my size pathetically these days. Jackson called me fatso the other day......I did put a pic of a bathing suit that I thought was cute on the refrigerator.

Congrats on a good problem to have!

I am offended that the size 12's are the fat clothes. THank you all you skinny bitches.

Hello Lisa,

I am so sorry to hear your story of myoxid liposarcoma, I was searching for Myxoid Liposarcoma and came across this blog. I just found out that my Mum also have Myxoid sarcoma of the foot. Since she is backhome, I am communicating with the resident students and lab technician at the hospital she is in and I am confused by the stuff I am finding out from them. They say it is localized and so they haven't done any grading or staging (even though this is second tumor in last few months). Is it normal?? She is scheduled for surgery but because of backlog they have postpone it.. wouldn't it be bad if they postpone, especially when it seems to be aggressive.
I am so sorry if I am bothering you a lot, but I just feel hopeless and I don't know where to go or whom to ask..Please any suggestion would be greatly appreciated
Thanks a lot in advance.
