The Goal of the 4

Thursday, October 07, 2010

I've never worn a size 4 in my life. I actually don't really remember what size I wore in high school. I've seen a picture where, I really was kind of thin, but I don't remember being thin. I always thought I was the chunky, ugly girl. I always swore I went from a girls size 14 to a size 9 over night. I think that's the truth. But then again, I've blocked so much of a my childhood out (that's another blog).

Anyway, I was looking in the mirror a few minutes ago. I'm feeling okay right now. Still a little financially stressed, but the scale is now moving and dropping the water weight I gained and probably stress/cortisol weight. I feel in my heart of hearts that adding back my upper body strength training is a definite plus and I believe that may have had something to do with my plateau. I've doubled up on the leg workouts during the week because that is my weakest link, but if I work it, it's my strongest link and sexiest emoticon

Again, I digress. I've never worn size 4. Hmmm, I've seen an 8, really never been in a 6, but 4 sounds so magical, especially for someone 5'7". Can it be done? Man, that's probably 4 more inches off that booty. That's a lot of work. Hmmm. But.. I can go into the junior department if I want and possibly find stuff there because although I may be 47, I DON'T do frumpy any more. I like sexy clothes. Hmmm, so a size 4 butt will balance out the lack of upper body, but if I work that the chest muscle might give me a little bit of boobs.

So whatcha think? Did I just challenge myself to a size 4. So, I need a date to finish this. My birthday? That's in March, or sooner? Four inches, man that's a bunch. Barely lost two in six months.

March it is. For my birthday, I will be a size 4... and I will go CLOTHES shopping for my birthday. I needed a mission. emoticon emoticon

    You crack me up LOL! I could never get into a size 4 even at 110 lbs...it is because my hips are wide so no matter how small I am I can't make the bones smaller! AHhhhh I say if your body will allow it then sure why not! Just don't make that a goal that drives you insane! You look great and you have inspired me! Thank you

    I think, no I KNOW! you can do this! I never thought of setting a clothing size goal, only a weight goal...hmmm you've given me something to ponder. Can't wait to see you get to your goal though!
    Hugs all around cause I know you've got this in the bag!

    I hear you about going from a girls' size 14 to a juniors' 9 overnight. Seems like that's exactly what I did, and then I spent most of high school in 10/11s. I was fit due to all my sports activities, but my athletic build was different than most of my skinny friends, and I always felt like the big girl, even though I was far from it. Until I was the big girl anyway. :-)

    I'm kind of shooting for that size 4 myself. I'm currently in a pretty loose 10, so hopefully actually an 8, and I'm just really, really curious to see what I'd look like as a 4! :-) So, good luck to you! I'll be striving for it right there along with you!

    You can do it if you set your mind to it. I was a size 5 in high school. I never remember wearing anything smaller that that. My goal is single digit jeans. I might change my mind when I reach that, but that is my first big goal.

    You can do it! I went from a 14 to a 4 and I'm 5'5" - and boy do I feel better! It is achievable!
    If I can do it anybody can...lol!!! Go for it! emoticon

    There's nothing wrong with shooting for it! I know you can do anything you set your mind to! Just be careful setting "timeline" goals because what looks good on paper doesn't always translate to the body and can make you feel like poo about your efforts even though you gave your all. Just keep on trucking and you'll get to your magic number!
