Relax, it's just a number

Saturday, March 26, 2011

I decided to weigh myself today and for once I didn't let myself get bent out of shape about it. I am not one for scales but I can say that it is nice to know that I am no longer 160 lbs! I would like to be around 130 but something in my body tells me I would look stick thin. GROSS
I want to be fit not THIN or TINY. Curves & definition are sexy, not ribs and collar bone.

So I am on the hunt for some jeans within the next couple weeks. I would much rather go to consignment places for things like this because for 1 they are cheaper and for 2 jeans just fit better when someone else has already broke them in! But in the past I have gotten depressed about not being able to wear a certain size. Relax, it's just a number....that is what I keep telling myself. I know plenty of women who can rock a size 14 and look fantastic! Plus, no one will know that size unless they are looking for it....and honey, if they are looking for it, they better either be a significant other or have a darn good reason to go snooping through your pants looking for a tag! emoticon

The promise I am making to myself from this day forward.....I will not let the size 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 rack distract me into thinking I am fat. I am happy and content with an 8. I feel healthy not boney and that makes me feel wonderful!

Relax, it's just a number

    Ditto. When I started on this journey, I was thrilled when I reached a size 6 jean. In maintaining, I suck. As much as I have learned, I keep falling off and am holding comfortably in an 8. It IS just a number and I am having trouble! I just gotta convince myself of that.

    Thanks for the wake-up call.

    Awesome blog! I would love, love to rock a size 14, and size 8 is amazing. Thanks for sharing and making me chuckle!

    emoticon Sorry, I had a little chuckle. Don't you just hate when people you don't even know go rummaging through your pants? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think I get a little carried away with the smileys? Sorry.

    Can I just say how much wisdom there is in your words. Seriously! I want to know who it was that decided that a certain number on the scale was the right number and who decided a certain pant size was the right pant size. I can take the same type of jean in the same size and try on every pair they have and each on fits differently. The manufacturers keep adjusting the sizes anyway. I think Marilyn Monroe wore a size 12 and now it would be an 8 or something.

    It's time we start celebrating our bodies for what they can do and for how they make us feel and not for who can go the longest down a long stage without passing out from starvation!

    Tell it Yoda! You speak the truth!!!

    You are soo right!! I weigh myself maybe once a month. I was a little obsessed with getting to my pre-marriage & kids weight from my 20's....I'm over 40 now and I'm happy being fit and healthy. I get my confidence from my actions not how much I weigh :-D
