This morning, just on impulse, I decided to see if I could get into the no-spandex-content size 16 jeans that I sobbed about two months ago; I had tried to get them on and was crying when they had a zipper gap of around 4 inches. I couldn't zip them up, even lying down on the bed.

Today I can zip them up without lying down; without sucking in my stomach to the point of pain; without having a huge bulge over the top of the waistband.

Mind you, there's still some bulge. But DANG!!!!

I'm going to wear them for my mall-walking workout this morning.

I'm so thrilled about it that I don't even mind *giving away* the 4% Spandex jeans that I had been wearing. Even if they *are* cute.

If I can do it, YOU can do it!!!!!!!!!!

I recommend that anyone who has hit the "plateau" join the group Calorie Cycling and read more about why your body may be holding onto it's fat reserves. You can find the group here on my SparkPage.

    You must feel great! That is really wonderful. Congratulations! Keep at it. I think I'll take your suggestion and check out the group "Calorie Cycling". A little more knowledge never hurt. Truly jeans can be the deciding factor in how successful we are.

    PS -- Where is that sunset or sunrise? It's gorgeous!! Looks almost like the ones we see here in Tucson.
