My brain is behind!

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

So I'm down almost 40 lbs. I started out filling a US size 22 pants and now the 16's I bought are getting to be too big, but when I look at a pair of 14 jeans my brain says "Those aren't going to fit you, look how little the waist is. There's no way you'll be comfortable." It's driving me nuts.

I look at jeans in my closet that I wore last week when I was 4lbs heavier and my brain says they won't fit. I know they fit because I wore them. I am super proud of my progress & I love what's happening to my body, but it will be even better when I can get past the knee jerk reaction I have when looking at smaller clothes.

Oh and I had an NSV too, I got into a bathing suit I bought years ago that was marked wrong and I never thought I had a chance to fit into. I wore it swimming laps this week! Everything is moving in the right direction.

UPDATE: In my last blog I mentioned that my hubby was struggling, I think he's back on the wagon!! YAY! At least he's tracking his food & made a commitment to spend at least 30 minutes a day on SP!!

    Panda I'm going through the same thing with the clothes. I still gravitate towards the size 30-32 and last week I actually bought 1 size 22/24 shirt and I'm wearing 22/24 jeans. I look at them and think those aren't gonna fit, and they so proud of you and Danny I know you both will succeed! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Way to go! I am so proud of you!!! Our patterns of thinking are so hard to change. Yell it out loud that "YES, I CAN WEAR THIS! YES, I WILL WEAR THIS!!!" That is awesome about your bathing suit as well. You have made such positive changes and I know that it will continue!!!

    I'm so happy for your husband as well! Sparkpeople has really helped my state of mind. My husband mentioned last night about how I have blossomed lately and I told him it was due to all of the supportive and encouraging people on this site! You guys are an unstoppable team!!! Keep going!!!

    Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
