The In Between Stage
Tuesday, June 18, 2013
There are pants folded in a box under the bed which are the size I had gotten to when I started Spark People, 20 pounds ago. They are going to charity next week. As my weight dropped, I moved down to the next size, the pants were tight and I really looked for ones with a little stretch.
Now that size is too big for most all of the pants I own. So I went out to look for some at my goal weight size. They are tight and again feel better if there is a little stretch. However, it is harder to lose this next 8 pounds so I am going have this problem for a while longer. The next weight loss will put me square back into my goal weight pants. This is great except that finding the In-Between-Stage pants is not fun.
Some are cut so that they are way too tight for right now. Some are just not flattering even if they fit ok, especially low-waisted ones. So in addition to trying to find clothes for a 65 year old, the search is even harder while I am in the In-Between-Stage. At least I have made it here and there is visible progress. Now I just need to keep on the program and make sure I exercise every day. I am really looking forward to being the Just-Right-Stage.
