That DEEP winter coat! - Tales from 100# Down

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Last winter my DH bought me a "deep winter" coat. I was trying to buy it in a size that would last more than one winter. I bought it snug and last winter could JUST zip it and it was tight. We went out to do a bit of shopping today and when he told me to bundle up because it was in the single digits I went for that coat.

Not ONLY did it zip easily but it's too big! Oh what a feeling! Now I plan to make it "do" for the winter and will buy a new one SNUG when they go on sale in the spring.

This is the kind of non-scale "victory" that makes me feel good about my slow progress. I plan to focus more on these measures of progress in the year ahead since my losses on the scale are smaller now.

It's time to revisit my goals and set up a list of short term and mid term goals to motivate me to make progress in 2014.

Stay Warm!
