I did it..... a Size 16!!
Monday, May 04, 2009
On Sunday I finally got to go shopping for new clothes. I desperatly needed summer clothes and work clothes. Anyways, I picked about 3 pairs of size 18 shorts and like 3 shirts size 16/18 to try on. I tried on the first pair of size 18 shorts and could not believe they were WAY to big. I was getting excited but not to excited cause you know how clothes are cut differently. I tried the next pair of size 18 shorts on and they were to big too. So I finished trying the shirts on and they fit. Previously I was wearing an 18/20. Anyhow I went and got the size 16 shorts and they fit just right. Not tight and even had a little room. You know I was doing my little happy dance in the dressing room. Trying to contain my excitement. For the rest of the day I was on cloud 9.
Lately I've been having trouble with motivation to get to the gym and just plan laziness. I'm sure partly because I've been gaining and losing the same few pounds each week. I need to get away from being so concerned with the number on the scale and step back and look at the big picture to see how far I have come and how much healthier I am today. Well I've worked out 3 days in a row. I sure hope that after Sundays shopping experience I will look at that and realize I'm really doing this, I'm losing the weight and I am winning!!
