My goal in one picture

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I went to return a pair of sweat pants I purchased 3 weeks ago without trying on. I bought it in a large because that is what I usually wear in sweats. I went to wear them today and they were too big. I've gained 3 lbs since I bought those sweats. After I exchanged them for a medium I decided to hit the clearance racks at TJ MAXX. I will be going on vacation at the end of this month and wanted to purchase a nice little dress I could wear while at dinner in the bahamas. I found this little one sleeve black dress and I fell in love with it.I love one sleeve dresses. It was a medium. I usually wear a large or 12 in dresses. I decided to try it on and it fit. The only problem is that my belly didn't look to good in it but everything else looked nice. It wasn't to bad either. I didn't realize how much belly fat I lost till today. No wonder I had to wear a belt today. I HATE BELTS. So I decided to purchase the dress as encouragement. This is my 5% goal. To wear this dress by exercising and eating healthier. Although I gained weight I have lost inches. I have worked out 6 times a week for the past 3 weeks and it is paying off.My exercises have been extremely modified because of my work injury but I have been moving consistently. I know with the 5% challenge I will be able to accomplish this goal. So bring it. I'm ready for the challenge emoticon And can't wait to reap the rewards. I will take a before and after pic so that I can post at the end.
