I need to get some new clothes for my trip, but I have resisted because I'm trying to lose weight. I haven't had new jeans in over 2 years. My mini-goal before my trip was/is to get down one dress size--and I have! I tried on jeans in my usual size and they were waaaay too big. I ended up getting some Ralph Lauren jeans and Jones New York jeans in a smaller size and they fit and look so good! I even wore the jeans to church on Mother's day!
At the mall I was tempted to eat Cinnabon's, but the line was really long. While standing in line, I looked at the menu to see if I could get a small treat, but the smallest treat was huge, so I left the line for the pretzel line--long too. I looked at the menu for a whole-wheat pretzel, but there wasn't one, so I left the line again! Miracle! I was able to resist temptation for my favorite treats. I ended up having a bowl of Mexican soup (not great but not a diet buster) and water. I went to Target and got nuts and more water to eat on the way home (35 mile drive). After fitting in the smaller jeans, my motivation has been renewed! Yippee!
Because I haven't really exercised, I am not losing weight quickly, but it IS coming off.
