So I just got dressed and put on a pair of black cotton jeans. I could not even get them over my hips let alone closed. I know I've gained weight and an inch or two, but this was ridiculous! I pulled and pulled and they were not going up. I nearly cried. Were they the 20s I'd been wearing comfortably for the last few months or maybe new 18s I didn't quite fit into? Well, relief flooded me when I realized they were neither.. I finally took them off and checked the size..38/32.. they are my husband's pants! Men's pants do not have the same cut for the hips to flare at all.. and I have curves, Baby!
I put his pants on his shelf and put my own similar pants on.. size 20. They fit perfectly. Phew! I have not lost as much ground as I thought. Good motivation for me, though, as I don't want it to become a reality to not fit into my jeans.
I woke up from a dream about baking cookies in a place where everyone was baking different kinds of cookies.. OMG.. the cookies! And this is probably from watching so much of the Cake Boss and Cake Boss Next Great Baker Challenge.. where they were making things with Oreos in one I saw yesterday. I don't know if I can let go of the craving for chocolate chip cookies. I've figured out where I can get a few homemade cookies (diner downtown) and not make to do a big batch of them at home where I won't be able to resist eating a couple dozen.
As for how I'm doing.. Overall pretty well with my exercise according to my FitBit - and each day I eat healthy for 75% of the day or more and then I have trouble at night and overindulge in something. I have to stop buying ice cream, as we are not able to resist it. Treats have to be things we get outside the house. But I haven't weighed myself in over a week and it's time of the month so it will be another week before the next one.
Off to make my veggies with eggs.. Lots of fried red peppers with broccoli and light cheese and eggs and egg whites.. Yummy! :)
