Non-Scale Victory at the Store

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Since I have a new job, I indulged in a bit of shopping today. I decided to get some capri-length jeans and a top. I tried on the size I believed I needed, but they were too baggy. I had to take a smaller size! I haven't worn that size in oh-so-long! I haven't been doing well with any aspect of my Spark Plan, but it was truly a nice feeling to require a smaller size pants! These pants are pull-on with a stretchy waist and no fly. Who needs it when my tops are always covering my waist anyway. So comfy!

I've finished my first week of work. It was hard to get in the groove. I was pretty tired each day when I came home. It was hard to get rallied to cook a home-cooked meal, but I did it a few times. I cannot brag about great control when it has come to eating lately. I have dined at Taco Bell a few times and such, but I did make a pot of black beans from scratch that I've enjoyed eating with homemade salsa. I need to get back in the groove of drinking water.

Hope everyone is doing well with their eating programs and fitness routines. My SparkTeam has a challenge that just began in which we all attempt to lose a pound a week until July 4. Hope everyone will give it their all. If you are interested in joining this challenge, we'd love to have you over at the 50+ team page. Even if you are not quite 50 yet, you can still do the challenge with us--we are not that exclusive!

Spark the best you can, y'all!

    It is hard to tackle everything all at once. A new job, although exciting, is stressful....thus tiring. Once you get the swing of things right eating habits will fall into place again. I am in the new challenge but do not have high hopes that my first week will be good because of my traveling...darn. Congrats on the new pants!

    How fabulous. It is SUCH a great feeling when your clothes sizes start coming down. I've just had to invest in new underwear after losing 10kgs, so I know the feeling. Keep going.

    I've been back to water drinking and eating somewhat less. Not down to the 1200-1600 but more in control. Maybe it is a spring thing, hopeful!

    It's hard to get in the groove when starting a new job...hang in there, and I know your healthy eating habits will return.

In the meantime, congrats on the NSV!

    Great NSV! My list of NSVs is getting longer every day-
I have one more week before I start working and have to juggle everything- I am most worried about time for exercise.
after 3 months I am so into increasing my exercise minutes.

So even though you don't think your eating is going so well- something must be working or you wouldn't be able to buy the smaller clothes!

    Sometimes we can get overwhelmed. Just take one thing at a time. Once you are in the groove at work you can move on. For now the water is a good start. Good for you wearing a smaller size!
