Feeling it

Friday, September 16, 2011

I don't really know what's different this time. I've been on SP before. I've lost some weight before and thought "cool, this works" but it didn't stick and I went back to my regular old ways and the weight crept up and I grew to hate mirrors. This time has been different. Maybe because I haven't put as much emphasis on what my workouts need to be, maybe because even though I've been tracking I've been less stressed about every little piece of food. Maybe because this time it really is a lifestyle change. Eat less, move more. Whatever the reason it's working and I'm starting to like mirrors again.

I went out of town for the last four days for work. Four days of not really tracking and no gym. Four days of eating sensibly and walking as much as I could, even if I didn't track it everyday. Four days of glimpsing what maintenance might look like when I get there. And I got home and got on the scale and I'm down. Which is nice. But what's nicer is my pants are too big and I tried on a size ten pair of jeans while I was in the city and they almost fit. I bought a cute size 12 skirt and it's a little too big (but it's Marshall's so you take the size they've got that you can make work). This time it's working and I feel good.
