New (old) pants

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

I am one of the many women out there that have several size pants stashed away in hopes that one day I'll be back in my size 12's, 10', and maybe 8's.

Well today is one of those days....

I went through my bin today looking at my pants and grabbed a pair of black dress pants and thinking they were a size 12, tried them on, zipped them up, and then buttoned them, It wasn't until I went to the bathroom that I noticed the tag said 10. Holy moly!!!!

I'm not going to tell you that all of my size 10's will fit but one pair at a time. Losing these 7+ inches and 11lbs so far has expanded my wardrobe and I couldn't be happier. All these new (old) clothes I have now....woo hoo.

    that is a terrific feeling! congrats and keep going!
when i finally got back into some of those smaller sizes stored in the bin at the back of the closet , they were so outdated i had to give them away and go shopping.
that was still nice but let's ya know how long it took me to achieve.
way to go!

As I type, I'm enjoying my goal met reward....a yummy latte.

Next reward...20 pounds lost...massage

Thanks for that idea Sugarfreak :D


Two goals met

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

When it rains it pours huh?

I met two goals in one week. Getting below the 160 mark AND losing my first 10 pounds!!!!!!

I can now have that much deserved latte that I told myself I couldn't have until I lost 10#'s....funny thing is, I don't really want one now....I think gees, 250+ cals for one treat....there's so many other things I would rather have.

We'll see, maybe this weekend I'll have one, just b/c I earned it!

Now I have to decide what my 20# goal is...I already get regular hair cuts and colors, I get pedicures every couple months so I'm not sure what to "treat" myself with...any ideas? Maybe a new pair of pants that didn't come from WalMart? Hmmm I'm perplexed?

The 1st 10#'s are the hardest!

I am stuck....I re-started my weight loss journey mid-January and to date have lost 7.2lbs but seem to be stuck already.

No big deal, I know with the effort I've been putting in, that it'll eventually start falling off but the thing is...I like to make small achievement goals and b/c I'm such a latte junkie, I told myself that I couldn't have one until I lost 10lbs.

40 days into the year and I haven't had a latte yet, I think I'm over the withdrawal

Wow that 10lb latte is gonna taste so good.
