I have an issue with jeans. Old jeans vs new jeans.
The old jeans I have that I have loved for many years have no stretch in them. Levis were Levis - just good on 501's or 512's. You put them on to see if you are losing because they were the true test for me.
Last few years, you can't really buy jeans for women that don't have the give/stretch in them. Tummy panels, stretchy fit. So its hard to judge like with the older styles. They stretch out & get lose in weird ways...belly area especially. The tops get weird & roll, the pooch area stretches so you look pregnant but they still fit. Old jeans did not do that. You got tight & had to take them off or unbutton them. And you said "Wow, I really pigged out & need to get back on track so I can wear these old jeans".
I have put off trying on my OLD jeans. I did not want to be disappointed. I hung a pair on a hanger in my workout area to remind myself I WANT TO WEAR THESE ONES AGAIN.
So this morning I found a different pair in my closet & thought "Nahhh", but tried them on anyway. They fit!!! and I am wearing them today. No huge muffin top or crotch cutting.
This just means that all the pedometer steps that I have done walking in the last month are paying off for me. At least they are starting to. I have been consistent on making sure I get anywhere from 6000-10,000 steps a day before bed. I have learned that in the past I have a lot of days MAYBE gotten 3000-5000 steps & that is an eye opener. I am using dumbbells also while I do my Leslie Sansone or Bob Harper workouts daily also. I am drinking more water. And no beer during the week either. I quit buying ice cream & eating cheddar cheese by the carving slices out of the package. And it is paying off finally.
