Day 6- My pants are LOOSE!
Friday, January 15, 2010
I have this pair of jeans. They have been a bit big since I bought them (without trying them on first, of course), but I didn't take them back. I've just been wearing them with a belt. Well, yesterday, I was in a hurry and forgot my belt. I swear, I was pulling my pants up all through the store. (Not like I was really in danger of them falling down, that would be scary) They were just loose enough to get on my nerves. I brushed it off as I just forgot my belt. Then I thought, what if it's not just the belt. Hmmm... So, as soon as I got home and put my cold stuff in the freezer and fridge, I grabbed a pair of jeans out of my dresser that fit just right. Imagine my surprise when I found out that I am now going to need a belt to wear those as well! :)
I couldn't help it. I had to weigh myself. I've been careful not to do that, because I could drive myself nuts about it, but my curiosity got the better of me. So I pulled the new scale out from under my dresser where I had been stashing it. (That whole out of sight out of mind thing) Weighed myself and I am down 3 pounds.
My official weigh in isn't until Sunday morning, so I still have a couple more days, but I've very pleased, and I'm not rewarding myself with a cookie either. lol :) It does have me excited to see that all my work has been paying off, and that I can do this and will do this. So, I'm off to do my challenges for the days with a smile on my face! Jumping jacks, hurray! LOL!
