Finding motivation without the scale
Thursday, March 21, 2013
Lately I have noticed that my size 16 pants have been fitting very nicely. In fact, they are beginning to feel like my weekend baggy sweat pants!
So today, while getting ready for work, I figured I would try on my size 14 dark brown dress pants for work. This was purely a laziness move on my behalf since my other brown pants were in the dryer. I know when I tried these on a month ago, I couldn't get them past my thighs. Not the best feeling in the world.
Today, they pulled all the way up. Ohhh a small victory, I thought. But will they button or feel like one good sneeze will strip me? I carefully buttoned and zipped them up. Okay so they buttoned and zipped up, but did I look like a sausage in them?
Took one look in the mirror and they looked pretty darn good. They are tight enough to not look baggy yet lose enough to not look like yoga pants. Success!
I have to admit, I am feeling pretty gosh darn good today in my size 14 pants. I missed being a size 14 and I have plenty of pants tucked away in hopes of fitting into them again.
If I keep this up, my size 16 pants will be shipped to good will. Ahhh that would be so nice!
