My skinny shorts fit

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Today was a banner day, I discovered that my skinny shorts fit. They are nothing special just a pair of nice fitting denim shorts from LLBean that I have had for years and only fit into for a very short while about 3 years ago. I haven't lost a whole lot of weight but I've been diligent in working out both at the gym and in aquatic classes at our Aquatic Center. I guess it's all paying off. We will be taking off in our RV in 3 weeks and then another challenge presents itself........sticking with my eating plan on the road. We mostly eat in so it should be OK. I'm finding that logging in my food on the Nutritional Tracker is such an important part of being honest with myself about what goes into my mouth. I think twice about eating something I shouldn't if I know I have to write it down. I love the fact that it keeps track of my calories. Not sure yet how to deal with meals in restaurants that are not chains with online nutritional information and how to log them into the tracker.

    Wonderful! Getting into old "skinny" clothes is such fun! If I can't find nutritional information on a restaurant, I just enter the basic items in my tracker and go from there. It probably isn't quite accurate, but it gives me an idea of what I'm eating anyway. Going RV ing sounds like such fun!

    Congrats for fitting into your skinny shorts. That is a great accomplishment. I agree that tracking food is the key to my 20 lb weight loss. I try not to eat out too much at Restaurants because it is so hard to determine the calories in those foods.
    Good luck and stay moving.
