Changes (including new jeans!)

Monday, December 03, 2012

Hello all! I've been thinking of all you lovely sparklers out there kicking butt while I've been somewhat absent. Everything happened in such a whirlwind that logging on here everyday was often just not feasible. But I here now and hoping to be a more regular community member again.

So I have a week and a day at my new job done and am loving it so far! Very fun and relaxed environment. Though there lies a small obstacle in the fact that they keep on hand TONS of food and drink. A lot of it is pretty healthy, but it is still something I am keeping very vigilant about, especially since I haven't been tracking calories. So far it's been going well in that regard. Another thankfully short-term obstacle is that I currently drive a hour to and from work. This is just until I can move into my new apartment on the 16th, but it has created a bit of an exercise issue since I'm usually too tired before or after work to do much. I did get in 3 walks last week so i hoping to do the same if not better this week.

I have been successful in sticking within about a 1 pound range which I think is good since my goal was basically to just stay steady during this transition. Excitingly I went on a jean hunt this weekend and bought a pair of size 12 jeans that fit PERFECTLY. I've lost 2 sizes! Now these were kohls jeans, so maybe ran a little bigger anyway, but I am counting it!

Keep at it sparkers! You all motivate me!

(P.S. sorry for any typos,. I'm on my tablet and am too tired to proof)

    Congrats on losing 2 sizes! That means you and I are in the same boat. I too started in a size 16 and I am wearing 12 & 14s right now. I only have 1 pair of sz 12 jeans and I can totally tell that they fit me way better when I was exercising! Must get back to it myself! Good luck to you -- Congrats again on your progress!! Stay motivated! :)
