Fit Into My Skinny Dress

Friday, February 15, 2013

You know that goal clothing item people use instead of the scale? Well, "just in case," I tried it on this morning to see if I could wear it for my party tomorrow. Guess what? It fit! How is that possible, when I weight 160 pounds?

Then, it occurred to me; part of the weight must be muscle mass. That, and my stomach is shrinking because of the good abuse it's taking. I'm not saying it couldn't fit better, but I can definitely wear it in public, and it's not tight.

Well, I think I'll look for another non-scale victory that doesn't involve buying any new clothes or fitting into old clothes. I haven't used body measurements as goals, but that might be something to shoot for. Especially the arms and thigh circumference.

And I still have to hit my four day a week core work, that I only hit once this week, so far. I punked out yesterday.

All this to say that I need a new feel good goal. (I wasn't expecting to fit into this dress for a few more months. It's kind of anti-climactic. What?) Actually, I might go to Milan in May. But, that would require a sh*t load of sub work and a floor to sleep on in Italy.

    Fitting in Jeans always makes me feel good. But i think another goal would be good. I'm so happy for you. You rock.

  Many other things you can use for goals. How many sit ups or push ups you can do in a minute... or 5 minutes; how fast can you walk or run a mile? Congrats into getting into that dress tho. That is an accomplishment.
