People got tired of wearing the same things, but the funny thing was - and what surprised the participants - was that their spouses and coworkers either didn't notice or didn't mention that they were wearing the sames things over and over. 6 items seems too few (for most women it was 2 bottoms, 3 tops, and a jacket or sweater). I think I could go for a long time wearing only 10 items, but even 10 items can get expensive replacing every few months.

Love your "Just because no one sees it, doesn't mean it doesn't count" tagline!
Thanks, I'm back up to full speed now, and will be getting a re-eval at the gym on Wed since I won't be able to just jump back in at the weights I left at . I've been chomping at the bit to get back on track.

As of this past Wed I have finely made it into the "over weight" category in the BMI scale here . I haven't been down to this weight since around 9th grade!!!

Hope everyone is doing well

What I've learned along the way:

Just because no one sees it, doesn't mean it doesn't count
