Buckle Up

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I quite possibly am the biggest yo-yo dieter I know. Currently up 60 pounds from 2 summers ago I have decided (again) to try to get back in control. I have been living like a slob (Stacy and Clinton would cringe). I have been living in comfort in the means of yoga pants, yoga capri's, t-shirts, ponytails, etc. Yoga fabric is quite generous and it is rather uncomfortable to be back in clothes that do not STRETCH to accommodate. These workout clothes are appropriate for the gym but they do not say much for my fashion sense outside of the gym atmosphere. It is my goal to wear clothes with an actual waist that remind me of the extra baggage I am carrying. It is time for me to care enough about my appearance and myself to take the extra time each day to actually coordinate an outfit, style my hair and love myself a little. Instead of diving into the deep end and attempting to correct all of my dieting faults at one time; this time I am going to wade towards deeper waters and gradually change. This week I have been back to the gym (in yoga pants emoticon ) and I am wearing CLOTHES.

    I have done the yoga pants, before,. What a shock to feel the tight pants, once again!
    It is a great way to gain control.
    I like your steps, for the week!

    Thank you for my pumpkin! I love Fall and hope you are doing well. emoticon

    I hear ya, honey. My problem is that so much of what I do (working out, taking the dog for a hike in the woods, working in the yard, volunteering at school, doing housework, doing laundry) lends itself so naturally to yoga pants and capris. I have regained 10-12 of the 30 lbs I initially dropped so the jeans that were comfortable or a bit loose on me are now not fitting comfortably at all. I am joining you in your vow. In honor of you, and to remind myself that excessive food has visible consequences, I will be wearing an actual waistband with zipper and button, tomorrow, except while actually working out. When I am honest, I remind myself that going out in yoga pants is barely a notch above wearing pajamas or sweatpants around - the official "I give up" uniform (according to Jerry Seinfeld emoticon ). One thing I have always prided myself on is my ability to be truthful with myself, even when the truth is uncomfortable. The truth is, my jeans and other pants/slacks are uncomfortable right now. Right there with you, Sparkler! emoticon
