The pants don't lie
Monday, May 06, 2013
I'm still having problems actually seeing my weight loss. I guess my brain is just taking some time to catch up with reality. Either that or I never realized just how big I was before.
Every month when I take my measurements, I also try on some old pants that are still hanging around in my closet. I keep an index card in the pocket and note on there how far I can pull the pants up, whether they button/zip, etc. It's a clearer picture to me than my weight or measurements. This month, I fit into 2 of the 4 pairs of pants that I have been testing! I am actually wearing one right now. Not only that, but I have actually been able to purchase some new clothes in the regular section of the store! I am close to saying goodbye to plus-size clothes forever.
I also met my goal of being under 220 lbs for preschool graduation a little early. :-)
