I've been feeling a little "down" after eating too much during Thanksgiving yesterday, but I got an "eye opener" this morning that helped get me back on track.
I don't normally take part in the "Black Friday" shopping, but I was awake at 3:00 AM this morning, so I decided to wait in line for an hour for a smoker I really wanted. I got the smoker (normally $329 - a limited few on sale for $179), and I also picked up 4 pairs of jeans at $9.99 each. Since the place was "crazy" with people, I decided to buy 2 of each size (38" waist and 36" waist) instead of waiting forever to try them on. I was wearing a 42" waist when I started this journey, so I figured a 38" is about right for now, and I can wear the 36" ones after I lose a little more weight. Guess what - the 36" ones fit just right! That certainly cheered up my day. I can still wear the other 2 with a belt, so I'm not going to return them. It just made me feel so good to see the progress I've made, and I'm determined not to go backwards!
While I still need to work on my choices concerning food, I'm going in the right direcion. We all "slip up" now and then, but if we just keep working at it, we can achieve anything we want to!
