The Squeeze

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, October 21, 2013



Back on track and feeling great! Today is day 6 of my streak. But this morning when I was getting dressed, I had to admit that the t shirt I was putting on was a little tight. It fit perfectly LAST month, though! Ugh, isn't it amazingly awful how fast the weight can come back on after a few weeks of careless eating and some missed workouts?



I've been squeezing into my too tight t shirts for a couple of weeks now, and trying to hide the fact that they're tight on me by wearing a sweater to cover them up. But now I am committed to being completely honest with myself, like it or not.



Okay, so my workout t shirts have gotten tight on me. But I'm not going to squeeze myself into them anymore. Instead, I went into the spare bedroom and grabbed the bag of t shirts I had stored in there. Those shirts are the ones that had gotten too BIG for me within the past few months, and I was going to donate them. Everytime I go down a size in clothing, I bag them up for donation, and usually take them to the donation bin right away. Good thing I hadn't gotten around to doing that this time, though! They fit me again , so thats what I'm going to be wearing. I'm not thrilled to be up a size and to have those shirts hanging up in my closet once more, but I am going to use this as motivation to work hard so that I can once again bag them up for donation. (And this time I'll actually take them to the donation bin instead of storing them in the spare bedroom!)

    Well, now you have one more reason to keep up the good work and keep trying! We all love a size smaller clothes. I got so pissed few weeks ago when I noticed that I don't fit into my favourite shirt anymore... It was the point where I decided I had to get back on track, one way or another.
So, good luck! emoticon

    I completely understand the need to have the clothes feel comfortable. I have stopped wearing my more fitted clothes and now that I'm home. I hope to jump into a better eating program. I was a bad girl on vacation! lol

Hugs,

  This is one of the things I love and appreciate about you. You might get off the trail for awhile, but you come back and don't give up.

Maybe you can find something new and interesting, like some differant exercises and recipes. That might charge your battery.

Too bad we can't work out.

I still haven't met any Spark people here in my city. emoticon

  Oh, how I can relate to what you are saying! I weighed myself this morning and had somehow gained a few pounds. I hadn't been sticking to my plan very well this past week and those pounds found me in the end! I'm with you, back to the drawing board for me to shed those dang critters!! :-)

    Those bunnies on the race track are hilarious! emoticon
Being tall like I am I can wear the same size for quite a long time which helps, but the last time I bought underwear I thought "I'll see if I'm ready for next size down". The panty fit, but it was tight so this time I thought to myself "Oh, just buy the larger size and feel skinny in them"! So I think those larger t-shirts aren't such a bad idea after all emoticon

  The clothing size test is the one that works the best for me. Absolutely hate it when clothes I've been wearing tighten. It's a great motivator. Glad you are back on track!!

    Oh honey - I'm sorry you had to swap out the big shirts for the smaller ones

But oh my goodness - I'm glad you did. there's nothing like 'fessing up to the truth and if the truth is not something you like - then you can actually do something about it. And look at you! You stopped the binging and regaining before you undid all your hard work. Yay for you!
