Looking for motivation, try on the "START" jeans

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Ok, so maybe it's this rainy weather, it;'s so dark and dreary that I haven't wanted to do anything much today besides curl up in blankets with my kitties. I decided that to go find those "START" jeans. I have given away just about all the clothes I used to wear, except these jeans. I don't ever want to fit into them again. So, I am keeping them as a reminder, and today I needed that little push to put on my work-out clothes and get moving. I got the idea of taking the start jeans, and laying the current jeans over them, from another Sparker's page. This is a great way to see just how many inches are gone!

SO, then I said well let's just try them on...they were TIGHT before I began my journey to a healthy fit lifestyle. No need to unzip and unbutton to put them, I could slide into them as if they were drawstring or something. They didn't stay up, not enough width/girth of me for the jeans to sit on my hips - emoticon, they fell to the floor. I have no words to describe how that made me feel. I took a picture of the size difference. I had to hold them up---maybe I should have worn my workout pants under them....so not to show the undies :)

That being said, time for me to get off the computer and do some cardio!

    emoticon I can understand that great feeling!
    Sometimes when I don't feel like working out I take out my smaller, older jeans. The ones I still spill out of.
