The other day I blogged about how disappointed I was that I only lost 2 pounds last week. It brought the total weight loss to 37 pounds by still I was disappointed. Well today I needed a pick me up, so I did what I love to do SHOP! I wasn't going to by anything, just browse around for a little. I went into Lane Bryant, and started picking outfits a to try on. And to my surprise, I had to go back to the rack to get the smaller size! I might not have lost more than two pounds last week, but I sure did lose inches. I am proud to say that, in their shirts, i am in the smallest size the store carries! That's right a 14/16 fits me!
... I could have went bankrupt buying new shirts, but I stopped myself, thankfully. I told myself that I could buy one item as a "good job, keep going present"...and that's what I did. I had to stop, not just for the sake of my bank account, but because I didn't want to become complacent in my new healthy lifestyle journey. I love the Lane Bryant store but I don't always want to be their customer. I know I have a while longer in there, because of my, for lack of a better word, luscious behind, but I do want to " under grow" their store.
So I will relish in my new mini victory and wear my new shirt proudly, but I will not settle, not even for a minute. I did stop by another store and picked up two new sports bras and workout shirts, I figured that if I am going to start running, ( outside, where people can see me) I might as well look cute doing it!
